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...

Driftwood Beach

I adored Driftwood Beach. It was just me, alone along a long stretch of virgin beach layered with three different rows of beach treasures, rocks and shells.
I leisurely strolled, examining rocks and bagging a few interesting specimens.
It was the first beach with rocks that weren't monochromatic dark black. I found my first Oregon agates! One that is the color of the sun. I found rocks of bright red, yellows, mottled greens, blacks with multi-colored streaks...just a cornucopia of delights.
The peacefulness is powerful. The ocean truly grand. I love it!
