The Den (Part 2)

There was no-one in when I went home at lunchtime. I drank some milk out of the bottle in the fridge. Then I made myself a pickle sandwich and went...

The Den (Part 1)

This is one of the first short stories I ever wrote - about 30 years ago. It's based on my own childhood experiences, growing up on a high-rise estate in South London in the '70s.

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 some processing - and we're good at that!  I over-analyse everything.

I tried to make this not so much about behaviours and more about how Aspies perceive the world.  It's one of the reasons that diagnosis is so...

A beautiful tale, Lindy.  It lifted my heart to read this today.

That's sounds like exactly my kind of holiday, too!  The travel agents never quite understand, do they.

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.

JC was routinely denounced as a Marxist - usually by people who've never read a word of Marx, and perpetuate the usual misunderstandings and misinformation about him.  'Look at the Soviet Union.  Look at North Korea.'  Okay, yeah... look at them...

Hi Jane

Posted on Sun, 02 Jan 2022

Reading this story this morning has made my day!  I'm self-isolating at the moment, trying to focus on things other than Facebook (just deactivated from there at last - one addiction I can do without now!), so thought it was time to get back to...

Enjoyed this

Posted on Tue, 28 Dec 2021

It reminded me of years gone by, when I had a huge collection of pencils and notepads - and used them!  Not used a pencil in ages.  Perhaps it's good to get back to basics.

I never really understood the HB, 4B, 2B stuff, mind.
