The Show Must Go On / Baasics 3 The Deep End

Monday night at ODC Theater in SF is Baasics 3 The Deep End.  For outsiders, the title tells you nothing, really. Bay Area Art & Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions is Baasics, and this is the third event in their series. But man, the elevator pitch on this series could not be more fascinating: An exploration of neurodiversities, mental disorders and creativity.

Bring it.

An art and science lecture series, funded and executed in the most professional and passionate of ways...I've been impressed at every turn by the efforts of curators Selene Foster and Christopher Reiger.

Eli and I are scheduled to appear for "ECHOLILIA : Walking The Path On The Autisic Spectrum", our slideshow and q&a. We are psyched, no question. As of Sunday evening as I type this, I have no voice. Eli came back from Boy Scout camp as seen above, with his face and eye severely challenged. Let's hope the evening heals us both.

But as always, the show must go on.
