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 Indian Brave, a 1900's early American Song

This is the other song that I want to write out of the 1905 journal. It's a peak into what life was like back then.
  The Indian Brave
This country long had been,
The land of the red men,
    Proud Indian Brave
O'er mountains rock and rill,
On river, lake and hill,
We trace his path way still
  His glories live

Free as his native air
He scorned the bond (?) man's fare
    Homage gave none,
Honor alone was due
To him whose aim was true
When courage ever knew.

The fight had won
True as a friend was he
His wigwam guest was free
Safe in his home

Long may his virtues grace
The White succeeding race
And gave him rightful place
Freedom's brave son
        Tune of America
