A movie my friend recommended –about kindness — I have not yet watched this — but I will —
A place on this blog for some of my autism awareness writings are — very slowly — accumulating — (so it seems) — there is a page posted here of some of my thoughts today (including my thinking…. looking backward at my entire life, it is possible that within autism = we are designed to live in a beautiful, peaceful world. That’s who we are. We do not adapt to (dare I say) the kind of CRAP that others DO adapt to — because they can…. Autism does not allow for “learning” to do that — perhaps this “learning to adapt” can be taught as in mimic….)
I have been blessed to meet a wonderful woman in town who has a weaving/spinning store four blocks from my house here. She has so kindly inspired me to weave again. So, I have been weaving — a tapestry — first one in over 35 years. The craft is IN me, a part of me — it was “right here” when I picked this up again. That amazing me. Working body memory — combined with a certain kind of talent.
I have also ordered two fine fleece to spin! They have not arrived yet. They are expensive on my budget – and shipping costs are AWFUL! But this will be cheaper, to spin my own yarn for weaving, than it would be to buy it.
That’s why I quit weaving in the first place. It costs money. And nobody wants to PAY for finished products.
This weaving now — has some geometrics (this is, after all, a kind of “sampler” to get back in the flow of the craft) — and it evolved into two trees — one on left is a fall tree — one on the right is a thriving green leaf tree — leaving things behind — transitions — old life leaving — to return or be born again newly…. transformation…..
more later!! thanks for stopping by!!
This is one of the excellent autism videos —
