Logically spiritual

For the longest time, I pushed back against “logic” and “order”, “structure” and “form as though they were the very enemies of my being. Since my Asperger’s diagnosis, I’ve been compelled to review that attitude and flip it on its … Continue reading

Pigment of life

When a new paradigm starts to emerge, it can seem lacking in depth, an unfamiliar “convenience food” where a complex banquet of life used to be, throwing us into a turmoil of nostalgia for the old ways…though we don’t want those either. What calls us through the bewildering territory is an unspeakable force, an original spark without name… Continue reading

Jane Eyre – nineteenth century Aspie woman

Yesterday, I was at the Blackeyed Theatre stage production of Jane Eyre and, from the front balcony seat looking down onto the stage, I saw something so new yet just so obvious about this well-known character that I had missed … Continue reading

Going “nowhere”, reaching beyond “the point”

A potent place on the so-called “road to nowhere”…a life review…and an opportunity to realise the astonishing power of even the most a subtly altered perspective.

All this and more from a serendipitous revisit to a place that seemed to draw me back there…no arguing! Continue reading

Seeking the warmth of “new” friendship

There’s nothing like being left out in the cold of an old paradigm to make you the perfect candidate for evolved and aspirational thinking around that topic. Exploring friendships through Aspie eyes tells me we are primed to model a brand new way of treating one another… Continue reading

Exquisite life

The reason life is so intense when we are young is that the exquisite pain we experience is in proportion to how intensely we love; we experience, and welcome in, the full range of feelings as part of the sheer excitement and wonder of life.

What if the true wisdom of maturity invites us to remember…? Continue reading

Mrs White in the study with the candlestick

When things happen that we don’t like, it’s so easy to accuse this and that, until it becomes like a proverbial game of “Cluedo” (“Clue” in N America)…calling out a person in a situation with a particular “weapon”…except nobody ever wins in real life. So what could be a fresh way forwards? Looking at triggers, separation mentality and a way out of this toxic pain. Continue reading
