Taking the Scenic Route

Silent, still, magical

Silent, still, magical

posted in Winter |

It snowed, which isn’t really all that unusual.  What was unusual is that the snow came without wind, and in the middle of the night it was almost startling to step outside and hear such an immense silence, especially considering we live a stone’s throw from a major road.  It was also undisturbed by cars going by, so it was a pristine blanket over everything.  I am glad we took a moment to enjoy it as we headed for bed.

The pictures don’t really do it justice, but it was so light outside from the moon and glow of the street lights that we had to try.

  • 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
