Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

The Care & Feeding of the Soul

My Soul is the piece of God, given to me, given equally to all, at birth. It is mine, temporarily, for it has been & will be in existence for many lifetimes, centuries.
 My Soul never tires, never dies or even grows old. It's a small piece of eternity, of  wisdom and of an eternally shining light.
 I don't know physically where my Soul resides. Maybe because my body resides  completely within it, and it has no need for a practical place.
 My brow, forehead "lights up" when I write or think in such spiritual terms. "The Minds Eye", the Sixth Chakra that most easily sees and senses God & Spirit. 
 The care of the Soul, is acknowledging that you have one, first and foremost. Recognizing that part of us which is timeless and wise, one need only be silent and listen deeply. 
 I find it easiest to hear when I am outdoors on a quiet walk through wood or park, maybe a river or stream.
 I like the idea that part of me is so wise and sage, that I have already sought after and formulated answers in previous lifetimes. If my knowledge, combined and compiled, could be written into a book, pray tell, of how many pages it would contain? Would the important queries be outlined in blue? 
 Visually, as I write, I see an immense cathedral, vaulted ceilings and all, against the mighty walls are rows and rows of books 30 feet high. The interior, marbled, mosaic floor, depicts the eternal mysteries of time, space, the universe, the history of humankind and the deities of each age and region. Hmm, those who pray all pray to the same God, just with different names and appearances according to their time frame.
 The hall, indeed, is hallowed ground. I feel a reverence with every step. I can't say with certainty that all people share a singular such athenaeum, or if each individual soul amasses and has it's own building. I would lean toward the latter.
 Feeding the Soul is as simple as silence, introspection and quietly meditating. Finding a time and place completely free of the blaring constraints and demands of this constantly moving, external reality is no small task, but it be a worthy one.
 This topic came up for me today as I relived some...various, painful realities of my past that put into question my worth as a human. 
 I heard these words, "Your Soul, your Spirit remains unmarred. These were external physical and mental events that were not and are not who you truly are."
 Thus, I post

Aspergers and Phone Calls

I've tried for quite awhile to write about the anxiety of having to make a phone call, and the quiet terror that the phone ringing and needing to be answered brings.
 This sums it up nicely:

Aspergers and Friendships

Friendships are a rarity with Aspergers. A true friend seems to occupy a much larger place in my life....in their life, I'm just a little blip.
