And it's a very common

Posted on Mon, 04 Mar 2019

And it's a very common experience with high-functioning autistics - as I read and hear all the time from others.  Even in my last job, with an autism charity, the lack of proper understanding was profound.  I left in the end because of a bullying...

I understand the info

Posted on Tue, 06 Nov 2018

I understand the info overload!  It's all a lot to take in, and it takes time to process.  I'm 3 years past diagnosis now, and I'm still running the numbers.  To use the old cliche, it's a rollercoaster.  So many positives... but the other side...

Thanks, Stephen.  It takes

Posted on Tue, 06 Nov 2018

Thanks, Stephen.  It takes some processing - and we're good at that!  I over-analyse everything.

I especially love the hope embodied in this - the...

So many things going on in

Posted on Sun, 16 Mar 2014

So many things going on in this one, Tina.  Love, loss, disappointment, aging, the sense of growing isolation... and the comfort, still, in those small familiar things.  That final stanza is perfect in capturing it all.

Ah, The Blind Beggar.  Oh, the times...

Great memories, mate.

 

That scene where Ollie runs out in front of the fire engine and jumps in the back of the van - I watched that being filmed.  It took six takes over about 40...

Cassiopeia - 'the big double

Posted on Tue, 18 Jan 2022

Cassiopeia - 'the big double-you!'

One of the few constellations I can remember, because of the shape.

A first reading has resonated with my own thoughts at this time.  I may not be able to decode the images, but there's an...
