    This piece has made me sit for a moment and think about all of the things that I worry about. I catch myself correcting my 10 year old son who lives with Autism. When he seems the most happy is when he is whoing and humming and singing very loud or spinning, flapping and drawing, painting or putting glue on anything that will stick. Maybe those are not such negative stemming behaviors maybe they are creative expression and who am I to stifle his creativity and who is society to judge? Who care what they think, he is being him and that is what I love about being with him is that he loves me and allows me to relax and be me. Thank you for the reality check. This is a beautiful piece:)
