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...

Too many things

There are too many things in this house. The endless purchases seem to fill every nook. With each new acquisition, the value of the previous purchases falls a bit more. When we assign value to things and the pursuit of them our main pleasure...we drown in emptiness.
I...became...just another thing, a possession to be moved here or put there. My value declined as things became more and more of the goal.
I'm fettering out all my unwanted things. Objects that once held my attention and adoration. In this light, I see them as nothing more than eaters of time and blinders to people, feeling, emotions and the real stuff life is made of. As I divest the things, I find myself and what means something to me. Discarding old, adopted strategies and distractions helps me to clean out what I don't desire on the inside as well.
I covet not possessions that ensnare and dumb me down. Each piece that ends in the thrift shop bag reminds me how very little I require to live sustained.
It's becoming clearer, my goal that is.
All I want is to be happy, unencumbered and free.
