Temple Grandin (2010)Autism gave her a vision. She gave it a voice.

Weird. It was weird to see me on the screen. It was like going in a weird time machine, going back in a time machine into the ‘60s. They put a wig on Claire and dressed her up in clothes and she had to wear these ugly false teeth apparatus. She looked like me, except she was shorter than me and we couldn’t do anything about that, but she sounds and moves just like me. She does accurately portray how I would act in the '60s and '70s. Claire did a great job. (Temple Grandin about Claire Danes performance)


I watched my girls grow up and grow into their gifts. And then they died because of them and before I’m even done mourning the cycle starts up again, I’m suddenly 9 months pregnant with Ingrid and then soon after comes Freya. And once again my girls grow up, they practice magic, then one way or another they die by its hand. Over and over and over and over.
