Today is my last day as the Erikson Scholar in Residence at the Austen Riggs Center. To say I will miss this place, the fabulous people I had the privilege to work with, and the cottage I called home for the last three months, would be an understatement. It’s been great to form new links across disciplines!
While in residence, I collaborated with a fantastic group of psychologists, established a grounding in psycho biography and psycho history, read more than 100 sources, and wrote 90 rough-draft pages of my manuscript.
This afternoon I’ll head home. I can’t wait to see my dogs, and more importantly, to bring what I learned at Riggs into my courses at Siena this fall! The disease and disability in early American literature class is going to be fabulous!
