I got to sit across from Temple Grandin at Paula Deen's in Harrah's Tunica. I had the opportunity to meet her but I lost my nerve. I am regretful. I did squeeze into group photo with her. The next morning I attended her seminar. She spoke for about 1.5 hours but I could've listened for twice that long. She is utterly fascinating. She broke open the mystery of autistics and now they're out and about, getting stuff done.
She kept saying how she turned her anger into crying. That saved her from Social Outcastdom. The rest is history.
Read, listen, youtube and watch Temple Grandin. Because she's fantastically amazing.
