Different Funeral Experience

posted in Death, project 365 |

#60 The most unique funeral I have ever been to. The Pagan/Wiccan funeral of Robert’s bio-mom’s partner. His bio-mom died 2 years ago (almost to the day) and her ashes are next to her partner’s at the foot of the table. (Robert is like a brother to us, we were there for him and his family). I watched the kids through much of it, but what I saw was beautiful, just completely different than anything I have experienced.

  • Autism is a continuum from genius to extremely handicapped. If you got rid of all the autism genetics, you’d get rid of scientists, musicians, mathematicians. Some guy with high-functioning Asperger’s developed the first stone spear; it wasn’t developed by the social ones yakking around the campfire. The problem is, you talk to parents with a low-functioning kid, who’ve got a teenager who still goes to the bathroom in his pants and who’s biting himself all the time. This guy destroys the house, and he’s not typing, no matter what keyboards you make available. His life is miserable. It would be nice if you could prevent the most severe forms of nonverbal autism.” — Temple Grandin, PhD, Autistic
