Yes! I suppose they will have to put up with us with or without
spellcheckers. It must drive some of picture frame straighteners crazy.
Dyslexia manifests itself at different times in different ways and is
different with almost all people effected by it.

I do think music is a way to conbat it. For instance my reading anmd
writing skills improved through music study in ways they could not possibly
without it. In addition my long term memory amazes people but my short term
is very bad. Nearly all my most vibvid long-term memories are associated in
some way with playing or listem@-----. I even dream with music
score and those are the dreams I remember.

Music is a memonic device becuse it is spacial, emotional, and is
mathematical and occup[ies paralelle snatptic streams of thought on a
higher and wider band of brain activity without the use of unnatural
numbers shapes or associtaions.

"You Take The High Notes" There is a
difference between "dealers" and musicians that love not only the sound of
music but the tools wchich make it possible for people to play music. It's
important to set things free so they may ultimately find their way to
their intended parties. A musical instrument or a pert can change a life
and if it does it is always for the better. A family collection for sale
and auction. I am especially interested in Musical Instrument History and
technical data. Please email me with interesting links. Thank you:-) Leo
