My dream is to open a holistic therapeutic haven for people with severe traumatic stress. People who might visit the haven would be neuro-rehab patients, veterans with P.T.S.D. and civilians with mental health issues due to abusive and traumatic histories. Have a team of people in mind. Have ideas about a therapeutic framework and have a potential location. Am working very hard on evidencing what I already know, in real time world. Not a big fish, just a little tadpole in the local pond. Not a cabbage palm but a cultural and spiritual hybrid with some potential for the future. Starting to make some connections in the real world. TED is my comforter while I keep fighting for my rights and opportunities for my local community through local Forum..
An idea worth spreading
Still working on this and looking for an appropriate photo of me. My Google icon is a large tropical tree against a blue sky. What if the eco-system a person supports is greater than the people they actually interact with on a day to day basis, greater than who they are related to, includes their ancestors and their descendants. What is creativity is there in all of us. What if people's ideas and communications lead to virtual babies as well as real ones. What if the great gifts to human knowledge and wisdom were the babies of people quite unable to communicate with the world in real time except through a highly specialised language. What might happen if there were no interpreters for that language. What might happen if there was insufficient knowledge of how to apply the information ? What if there was not the technology to allow the 'silent majority' to have a say. My passion is people and the environment they live in. My guiding light is my son. C=E(piersquared)=C

My TED story
Any academic paper goes through a process of peer review and appraisal. Someone, somewhere has an idea, formulates a hypothesis, devises some kind of experiment to see what happens, writes that experiment out so others can replicate it, draws their conclusions, writes a paper and publishes it. Peer appraisal and review is important for adding further dimensions and thinking about original hypothesis. Important for fine tuning and refocusing. Happy Thanksgiving Day USA.
