Reeling in the higher vibes

When I was a child, long before the term “neurodiverse” became part of my vocabulary, I never seemed to so readily accept assurances of safety or the fixed parameters of experience that I was taught as did my age-peers. So … Continue reading

All or nothing

People say they want more freedom, more flow, more organic healing, more natural rhythms and to live lives trusting in Nature again and yet they litter this wishful landscape with “excepts…” and “yeah buts” and other such safeguarding conditions. They want it just a little bit but not all of the time and, as soon as thy don’t feel safe, as soon as they have to give up part of themselves to the daylight, they recoil back into all the same old fear mechanisms and structures of separation… Continue reading

On edge

Do you pay attention to your extra senses? Perhaps its time to listen; to give them air time, push them to the front of the queue when you are being bombarded by other information sources (many of them unreliable…). Maybe they even have some good news for you… Continue reading

It all seems so simple to me…

Throw back or way-shower, broken or inspirational, inconvenient or key influencer and right on time. Diversity is always interesting but, right now, it could be crucial and here’s a few thoughts about why (as originally posted to Living Whole). Continue reading

Shared roots and scattered seeds

Collaborative music is one of my biggest passions; the feeling of it goes way beyond the lyrics or the tune and becomes a harmonic of happy coincidences, dismantled wall and powerful juxtapositions. The heart gets recruited, first…not as a cerebral afterthought…when such rhythms are unleashed. It’s a whole-sensory experience, beyond the boundary lines of culture or genre. How I long for the experience to be shared by so many more people; for them to be stirred up from their slumber and to feel what we all find so hard to give form to, as yet, in this world… Continue reading

Soft landing

Amsterdam through Asperger’s eyes; a multi-dimensional map, a palette of many textures and a journey of deep self-exploration. Continue reading

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

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. So what happened to all that? Do we miss it (in preference to being comfortably numb)? Can we call it back…maybe a bit…or did we forfeit it with “maturity”? What if the true wisdom of maturity invites us to remember…? Continue reading
