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...

Newport to Eugene

A perfect day for a drive. The morn was cool, crisp and misty. I drove to Waldport, to Florence along the coast and then headed east.
I stopped along the way to marvel at the ferns gently blowing as they grew within the thick moss on the trees. There were breathtaking ocean beach views as I hugged the mountain along 101. I didn't stop for photos as heights make me nervous and quite queasy. Just take my word for it, I was driving cliffside. Lol
