A Thursday in 1997: I push clay across the desk. A young, nonverbal boy with autism sticks his fingers in, pushes it back. For half an hour we do this. He never looks at me. The clay is no advanced technology, but still in muddy thumbprints it records our effort and finally our failure to understand each other My starting point is that struggle to know another person, wondering what the boy saw and how any two of us can find a common vision.
