Friday, April 25, 2014. The basic information in this email that just came into my box first came to me at least a week ago. I wanted to write a coherent post including this info — but even now, for some reason when I think about doing so something in my “disorganized-disoriented” insecure attachment disordered mind goes astray and awry so that my thoughts, at least in words, disappear. Some kind of reactivity goes into motion and nothing remotely coherent remains of my thoughts.
SO I am going to go about this from another angle. I will simply copy and paste this information into this post. You can follow the links and see what you think — or don’t think – yourself!

I’ve been reporting that Dr. Bruce Perry is in Washington May 4 to talk on healing developmental trauma at the National Council.
I’ll be in San Diego May 2 to discuss Perry’s use of rhythm to heal trauma — and my new idea about children’s choirs! Click here:
In all cultures, long before writing, the only way to pass down an idea was to sing it. And gathering children to sing in choirs was the core of the Greek educational system since at least 700 BC. There were choir schools for kids in Europe since the 900s AD.
If a child can speak, he can sing; most kids can sing before they can speak. Training children to sing as young as possible is a principle of civilization. Electronic culture has forgotten it to our peril as our kids whack out on machine-made noise. We need children’s choirs and we need them on a mass scale.
And it gives kids a voice! Just when we urgently need a new Renaissance, children have been known to sing in the most amazing ways even today. You won’t believe the wonderful video of a 9-year-old girl singing that I have for you. Click here:

I have had a rough week with life in combo with my trauma-related disabilities! I even found at one point that my “upsetness” interfered with my drumming practice. Suddenly my body could not remember anything I have been so diligently practicing for weeks. I plowed onward, and by tonight all of my learning came back and I cannot tell you how relaxing it is for me to put my sticks in my hand, wind up my old metronome and go to beating on my practice pad along with it. EVERYTHING disappears except the beat and my focused attention on improving my technique. I LOVE IT and have another lesson tomorrow.
Saturday, April 26, 2014. Kathy was most kind to stop by and leave the following information in a comment to this post. I want to make sure anyone who comes across this post in the future has the information she provided in case they don’t get to the comment section! Again, thank you, Kathy, who wrote:
Thank you for your re-post. Check my earlier blog where I laid the basis with more of Dr. Perry’s slides:
