Boy Update: Communication is _______.

There are oh so many ways to fill in that blank! Communication is key. Communication is imperative. Communication is a lost art form. Communication is complicated. Communication is broken…

That Friday Feeling: Focus on the Positive.

For those of you who are part of the writing community on Twitter, first of all, Thank You!! Thank you for all your support that you give one another and being such an amazing example of what we can accomplish when we try to support one another instead of trying to tear each other down!

And, lately, there’s a new focus on all the ways my Autism comes through. Like, now that I’ve had a couple of years to start to understand what exactly having “Aspergers”(though the term seems to be less acceptable recently) means, I’m seeing more and more ways that it manifests that I didn’t realize were different from how other people live.
