It’s a wonderful crazy kind of life. I have days that are strained by their oddities that defy social convention, like Derek’s verbal stimming or almost echolalic monologues, and other days wowed by their ingenuity and creativity.
Apart from that, I used to be a corporate drone for a multinational abroad before realizing that my life would be more secure being with my kids who needed me more.
An interesting twist in my life is my abrupt yet wonderful immersion into esoteric practices and quantum sciences. Believe it or not, my quest in discovering the answers to Autism is one of the reasons that has led me to this practice.
I found a cosmic cause to the illogical logic of the prevalence of Autism. I say illogical logic because we all know that it exists and the numbers increase but each autistic case is never the same and its origins are still much cause for heated debate. I really can’t explain in practical terms how my esoteric practice has helped me to be more accepting of my children’s condition….I just hope that my blog entries slowly give you a picture of where I’ve gone and going to. Why I Made this Blog?
Of course, there are other things along the way. My secrets, which most of you will not read in my protected pages 😀 , as well as interesting people, events, food and places that help color this wonderful passage called life.
