The conference and the lecture are aimed at inner city kids, but the kind of trauma talked about is the kind that I am most interested in -- long term neglect and abuse. I have not connected with anyone who knows both these topics. I so hope the lecturer provides references to delve into, and I also hope she is approachable.

I should be writing about Halloween and the costume story, which is full of twists and turns, but I have to first note once again and again, how much I am loving my connection with the Waisman Center. There is a lecture on Thursday morning in Milwaukee which is on Trauma and Autism (!!!) that my substitute mentor emailed me about on Saturday -- she bumped into someone at an airport on her way to a conference. They got to talking, she emailed me. I emailed my contact, who gave me the email of the conference chair, I wrote to the chair, asking if I could go to the single lecture (only because I can't spare the time, not because there was not lots of good stuff to go to), and the chair replied yes! I am so excited!
