Neuroqueer, an offering

There is something about the inbetweeny nature of the kind of experience that is the natural territory of the neurodiverse way of being that lends itself to evolution, as and when the various methodologies of life unlock themselves from all the rules and rigidity of what is already known and familiar to most, to venture into the territory and meet us there. We naturally inhabit the void where new potentials emerge by virtue of the fact we are non-conformers and this leads into new extrapolations of experience…and expression. Continue reading

Courting obscurity

If being yourself means disappearing down the cracks, out of sight, into some-sort of inner sanctum where you feel happiest and most yourself, even if no one can see you being that way because the experience of it is entirely subjective and private, is that wrong? Or is it just a cultural idea of what is wrong; yet another inequality that favours the extroverted and leaves those of us who are natural hermits gasping for fresh air? In being introverted, am I part of yet another subset of people forced into having to disguise or compromise who they really are to be socially acceptable and get by, even (if income depends on it) to materially thrive?

New paradigm, now in this minute

These days, I pause long enough to really consider, do I give this thing energy or do I put my energy to better uses? All things being equal (imagine that if you can), do I want more of this thing in my future world? Little by little and, conversely, all at once with an immediacy that continues to shock me, this changes everything. Continue reading

No time to waste

Its more than possible to halt our our metamophosis with where we direct our minds (our habits and our comfort places). For instance, where is the contempory fiction that looks forwards, not to the topics of war, or cancer, or horror, or divorce, or past-trauma, or dsystopia, or kitchen-sink drama, or fluffy romance? Where is all the optimism, combined with new thinking and the sheer force of imagingation that is fiction?? Never forget that reading is how we sow seeds in the fertile ground of our minds; so, as any gardener knows well, be mindful of the quality of the soil but also of the kind of seeds that you sow.

Magnificent contract

What ties us to life, how do we see ourselves in that picture, what choices do we have, what blocks our sense of selfhood, how do we make things more balanced, what would reinvest us in our own lives again? Continue reading

Peaks of joy

“The sense I get is, once this has progressed a little further, there will be so many pockets of space inside of me that, being no longer stuffed full of so much stored information, I will be at liberty to sit back and allow energy to flow freely in and out of them, the way the sea fills gullies and rock pools on the beach, leaving its subtle imprint yet so easy to flow out again, experienced by me as moments of inspiration and peaks of joy.” Continue reading

Reframing success (and the universe always has a plan)

Redefining success as a woman, a parent, an individual: Am I finally prepared to own that I have had it all along, that every step of this journey speaks of (yes, unconventional) success in so many areas ready to be reappraised by our rapidly altering world paradigm, where many of us refuse to be defined or measured by what we “do” for a living.

Being diverse; my life in training

Autism isn’t how most people imagine it and there are still such a lot of distorted beliefs and stigma attached, which creates a culture where diagnosis is missed or even avoided. I am autistic, yet it took me 51 years … Continue reading

Choosing life: Jig of Life and the Ninth Wave

“For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,

And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools.

We are of the going water and the gone.

We are of water in the holy land of water

And all that’s to come runs in

With the thrust on the strand.” Continue reading
