Birds of a FEATHER….. !!!

You know what we do! Fly, Flock, Chirp & Hen~Peck…Together! lol Whatever you want to call it. We do it, and then some! The whole 9 yards. Heck ,that’s life and that’s what makes it interesting. RIGHT ?? All that being said…It can be “over-loading” AT TIMES! People can “explode your head” sometimes! Seriously! Recently…just that happened to me. Social relationships are very tricky. EVEN for the MOST~ SOCIAL of us!! That is one way ART can be so soothing to people on the SPECTRUM. Heck…TO ALL PEOPLE!

It is a NON-VERBAL way to communicate. A way to evoke feelings without being too in your face! You can soak it in and interpret at your own speed. It is so fun to see the STREAM of amazing art that graces the amazing facebook page …”Artists and Autism” If you haven’t heard of A & A…it is an amazing place.YOU MUST JOIN!!

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Artists-and-Autism/366165741773

Supportive ,creative, introspective people enjoying the ARTS as it pertains to the SPECTRUM! The talent abounds. Art submissions come freely from ASD individuals , family members, caregivers or professionals. So INSPIRING!! Visual, Literal, Musical IT’S ALL GOOD!

I have said it before I really feel like it is an ASD~Renaissance! So if that is the case. Let me introduce you to an innovative Renaissance man Jeffrey Michael Kellen. The MAN behind the Brilliance that lives and breathes everyday on A & A! He had the foresight to start an amazing much-needed venue. An artistic safe haven for us on the SPECTRUM!! Something that was previously unavailable! Jeff is a very talented writer of “fact & fiction.” His other awesome service is that of …ASD employment coach. We are very lucky to have people like him on this planet!!

I plan to do a regular blog showcasing each weeks fabulous work you see on this great page! Recently my heart has been so full because of some amazing events.The near completion of AutismHWY.com! The newly created Autism Youth Sports League and Artists and Autism. The FUTURE possibilities for ASD Individuals are HUGE! I have been busy feeling and communicating non~ verbally with my colored pencils!! So in this 1st installment showcasing A&A I will highlight 3 drawings that I created and submitted. (Hope you don’t mind!)

My Global Design speaks for itself…and it is being utilized by Lori Shayew’s~ The Gifts of Autism. She is spearheading” Love2Evolve”… an amazing global meditation for higher tolerance and acceptance! AWESOME!! (Check her Facebook page & website for all the info!)

Can’t Be BOUND!!

The “A~League” is set to SOAR! Now that OUR Boundary Quandary has been resolved we will PRESS~ON! Onward and Upward around those bases we will roll. This truly is an uplifting experience. That must move forward. We were running into that sticky proverbial red tape. The boundary rules in Williamsport are very explicit when it comes to boundaries. Unlike others in little league history we were not looking to bring in ringers. Just PLAYERS!! Unfortunately we all live within a 30 mile radius of our fields.

Everyone on the SPECTRUM understands the logistics. It’s a No-Brainer. We are 1/ 100- 150, in some instances as low as 1/70! So to mathematically have enough eligible players to field a league from 1 city is IMPOSSIBLE. In a 3- City District still could be tough. More and more kids are moving to California so who knows someday that could be feasible. However, for Our Summer League purposes and beyond we will write our own AUTISM~ FRIENDLY Rulebook! So we will take control and branch out on our own and SPREAD OUR WINGS!! Afterall OUR KIDS are Angels! In their way they truly are.

So…this AUTISM BASEBALL moves forward w/ President Manny Zapata, Vice President (creator) Lora Mancini, w/ strong support from myself Kelly Green, Matt Parker, Carol Zapata, Megan Spano and more to be named!! We are flying high!! The fun is contagious and it’s bound to spread! With great reason. It is a NEW WAVE! A wave for OUR KIDS to “catch”~for a change! People need to see and think about both sides of the NEURO~DIVERSITY Coin. They would be so much the better for it. All people have to have outlets to create self-pride in order to change and really grow. It is a basic human instinct! So all that being said….

It looks like we have 6 teams!! 2 Rookie, 2 Minor & 2 Major! It is going to be a lot of FUN with the addition of 2 more teams! A brand new Ballpark to call our home and NEW FRIENDS on our Horizon. Summer and Fall League is here. The future’s so bright I gotta wear shades! If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 100 times. …We cannot be BOUND…the Parents of ASD individuals know NO ~BOUNDARIES! Everyday can be a snowflake and you do whatever it takes to keep it from melting down. Like everyone else some days are great and some days are not. But, unlike EVERYONE else there aren’t available venues for our kids to do the everyday, take-it-for-granted things. The things “that kids do.” So when we have a chance to do something like this? If that means driving to and from TIMBUKTU WE WILL DO!

CLICK HERE FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE!!TIMBUK 3!!

WYATT…T.V.??

Last month on April 2nd Wyatt & I met with Paul Detrick of ReasonTV. He was interested in my “take” on the on-going battle. VACCINES?? Did they ~OR~ Did’nt they? I truly believe we will never know the definitive answer to THAT Question. ReasonTV is a libertarian reporting agency fostered by Drew Carey! I did not even know the position they would be taking. I just agreed to be interviewed and away we went!

Quite a leap of faith on my part. It was the day after Wyatt’s 11th birthday.We met with Paul and the camera man in the brand new playground at Library Park here in our town of Monrovia, California. It was a very “low~vibrational” day for Wyatt (no smiles & giggles.) As for me, I am generally “high~vibrational” (unless I am having issues with my 21 yr. old…lol) So the stage was set…lights, camera, action!!

As you can clearly see Wyatt could care-less about the camera. He was so into the weight at the end of his long-deflated Birthday Balloon. Well the balloon could hardly qualify as a balloon, since he popped it 30 minutes after we got it. For Wyatt the popping of the balloon>totally inconsequential. Frankly, he spends more time with the weighted end. Always has. What do I say about that?…”whatever floats HIS Boat!”

Directly after the interview …so many things rolled through my mind…?? Will they spin this a “wrong-way?” Will they make Wyatt appear very morose?? Will I look FAT ?!! lol (Yes on that one!) So I was very surprised to have the finished product pop up in my computer today! It’s very surreal to view yourself and child in this fashion. I like the report very much and I love what Lynn Koegel says near the end of this clip. That if we spent some of the money and time on OTHER Autism-related issues…perhaps we would be further along. I just believe that we are at a COMPLETE IMPASS on this issue!

Whatever the future holds regarding this VERY heavily contested issue…selfishly, does not concern me anymore. I can not go back in time…I can not change AUTISM It is what IT is. Yes , I will always try different strategies, therapies, supplements, diets… I am open to alot of highways in that regard. I truly believe there is validity in all the things we as parents try! We do it because we want the best for our kids. What we need to remember though… is that the “TYPICAL” Idea of what is RIGHT.

Is not ALWAYS right!
