Your suggestions for conference 2000 are excellent and I think we should
set aside some time during the Free time (!) that we may have in Wshington.
Not only are we going to step into a new millenum ,but we 'll
celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Freud's
Inerpretation of dreams. So some of the topics you suggest are timely. I
organized for the Asheville conference a symposium on The future of dream
research. We could talk about it. I hope Mark Blagrove will be able to
attend the board meeting because he has some ideas also.
I hope Flloyd is not a threath to your area... See you soon. Monique
