Blogging Hiatus

I’ve not been a regular blogger lately.

That’s about to change (I hope).

I have been doing lots of writing over the past few months, but haven’t shared it here. I’ve given lectures and talks for which I’ve prepared notes, and I have more in the works.

Most of what I’ve just described relates to autism, and I’ve also been doing some extensive research and a bit of writing about various hiking venues (and their histories) here in the Berkshires. I’ll be sharing parts of that as well.

And on the autism front, I’ve had extensive conversations (online and in person) about the latest revelations concerning Hans Asperger and his relationship to the Nazis who were in power during the time he was first writing and speaking about autism. I’ve not completed my research on this topic, but let me just say that I don’t agree with many of the interpretations that have been written.

So there’s all that and more. You might want to stock up on popcorn.

      Thanks, Irene, I appreciate your ongoing support.

      Also, it was great to see you and Ben at that recent event.

    Michael: I do hope you’re right in not believing the news about Hans Asperger and the purported Nazi connection. That was such a terrible period in our history and to have a person we’ve looked up to as a defender of children to be involved in the murder of so many is inconceivable. I look forward to your discoveries on this.

    All best wishes.

      Thanks. It isn’t a simple issue. Asperger was a complex human being, like all of us. We also have to look in the mirror. This country has a shameful record of mistreating disabled people.
