Grandma Returns

#188: Grandma Returns. Although we we glad to see her, it was a sad trip for her. Her friend’s cancer had metasticized to her brain and the situation was not a good one, so after a short visit, she turned around to come back. It was upsetting. She got back here in time for supper and we, once again, found ourselves enjoying conversation over savory smells of food. This time homemade red sauce with pasta and homemade meatballs. This time they used onions, so I had my own without sauce. Zora just had to be in the middle of the action, of course.

And, naturally, we had more music at the end of the day.

  • 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
