It was amazing.
I had the opportunity to present alongside researchers whose books I read in college! I spoke yesterday afternoon, and hit it pretty for out of the part. The comments and feedback I got were very positive, so I was quite relieved.
When Susanne Hanser, the Director of the Music Therapy Program at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, who is one of the authors I read in college, presented this morning, she was gracious enough to quote ME TWICE during HER talk! That rocked.
I got to meet so many of the brightest minds in our combined fields of music, neuroscience, and medicine and brainstorm on new questions, ideas, etc. There is so much to talk about, but I am so tired. We uncovered a GIGANTIC population of patients that have a real need for our services, and we couldn't think of ANYONE that has been doing any research on them. I don't want to disclose any more than that, but suffice it to say, I could get my doctorate just from working on this one problem, it's that big. Not that I need any new projects!
Kudos and big thanks to Ang for wrangling the kids while I was gone. Ali had her first swim meet, her second reading class, and swim lessons from Saturday through today. Great job honey! I love you!
I will post pics soon.
I'll have LOADS of pics next Sunday night, and I'll see you then. I just gotta get to sleep for now.
