Accepting Less than Perfect — Day 18 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Connecting with Other Autistics — Day 14 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

I like to put a header image, but I don’t know that I have one that really fits here either…  That’s OK for now… I have this listed in my notes as “CAU” or Canadian Autistics United.  But that is just a “formal” aspect of of connecting with other autistics.  There are a lot of […]

Second Medium Post

A little while ago (I think about a week ago, maybe 2) I decided to “upgrade” my Medium subscription for the purpose that I would not run into the problem of not being able to read everything I wanted, and in the process I decided to update my “interests” or whatever they call them. One […]

Personal Update

I know that this isn’t going to be a heck of a lot of anything, I have been working a bit on the Jigme Datse Site and I think some of that is coming along nicely (some of that will need to be moved over here and that may happen later today).  I keep my “to […]

Lack of activity

For the last little while there has been a lack of activity, well, mostly a lack of visible activity.  Well, not entirely just a lack of visible activity, as even stuff going on in the background hasn’t been going on. So here I am trying to put a few of those pieces together. Social issues […]

Open Psychology Chat

I have been trying to keep things up to date with our members through using UberConference.  Previously for a brief period we were also using Huzza.  Both of these systems work well when looking at having contact on a scheduled basis provided that the people involved show up.  I recently was finding that getting myself […]

Connection – Importance of

Some months ago, I was planning a meeting which I was going to talk about the importance of connection.  Many months ago actually, I think that may have been over a year ago, or at least close to a year ago. Today I met online with the organizer of the Capability Club which is in […]

Partial Review of Tony Attwood’s *The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome*

I picked up a used copy of this book (actually I believe an earlier edition of it possibly), and had started to read it, but with the combination of the writing, and the fact that after having spent well over a month almost entirely outside, in snow and cold, it still smelt far too much […]
