I love this recent blog post by writer, InterPlayer and mother Kate Arms-Roberts, who is also a MuseCubes enthusiast. In this post she describes a recent stressful period that drove her to start losing her cool with her kids:
Under normal circumstances, changing the dynamics with my kids is often as simple as playing with iMuseCubes, an iPhone app that shakes virtual dice and provides a movement and a sound for you to create simultaneously. 3 rounds of that usually shakes me out of a bad place. If the kids join me, it can go on for some time and become hysterical.
This particular day, however, MuseCubes weren’t enough to salvage her dying mood and create “a deeper feeling of grace in my body.” Check out the entire blog entry to read what did finally work for her (it’s a sweet story).
