A bit of audio from the last reading. I seem to have accidentally made the original post private. Oops.

Listen to a bit of last night's Fixed & Free reading.

I'm kind of an ASD noob; I mean, it's only been a few months since a friend clued me in to my own aspieness, & I was thoroughly ignorant on the subject before that. So I'm being surprised by things that are probably old hat to others.

I think the most unsettling thing to me is the divide between ASD activists who are aspie & ASD activists who are NT relatives or caretakers of someone on the spectrum. My parents are pretty awesome, & though they reacted badly to things like meltdowns, I'm pretty sure it never occurred to them to class my peculiarities as illness or something to be corrected. On the contrary, they saw my imagination & off-kilter perspective as positives & made sure I knew it. I haven't "come out" to them yet, but I doubt they'll have any worse reaction than incredulity when I do.

So when I hear stuff like that Autism Speaks person's UN speech where she talks about her child & others as if lack of communication means lack of thought & basically says aspies can only repay their caretakers with smiles for being such a burden, or read about NT parents accusing adult aspies who speak out about their own experiences of misrepresenting their child's experience, who assume that managing to communicate more means struggling less... I just really don't get it. It's bad enough that people can see others they don't know as subhuman; how do parents see their children that way?

Not that I expect anyone to be able to answer that. Just reacting to the incomprehensible, as usual, with talk & perspective-seeking.

re: "adults" -- I defer to the body's definition, i.e. puberty, so I'm pretty sure you're all adults as far as I'm concerned :)

I love fractal art, and I need to get back to doing mindfulness mediation. I also feel an affinity for the Hindu Bhakti tradition in how I relate to my g-d. So I requested something based on the heart chakra, and got this lovely piece.
For only 5$, araldia will make you a fractal wallpaper for phone or computer. I will make you a wallpaper in the dimensions of your computer/phone/tablet resolution using fractals. I can do many styles in several programs.Traditional Mandelbrot derived | On Fiverr.com
