Hi Jessica,

Yes, when I began to work on the iceberg analogy, I nearly fell of my chair when I realized how perfectly simple physics explained my stuttering relapses as a teenager. It was definitely on the those magic "AH HA!" moments! How could I have missed that for over a quarter of a century? Well duh!

Yes, it certainly is a complex condition. It's one thing to understand it and SEE what needs to be done, but it's another thing entirely to actually DO it. Yeah, you can see the bottom of the iceberg. Now go blast it apart. Gasp...! I'll try to write a paper next year on how to actually DO that. But don't hold your breath waiting for that paper... <smile>

I'm glad you enjoyed the paper. And I hope you visit many other papers in the wonderful conference.

Good luck in school!
