Autism is probably the future

Such a sweet story. A dad in the UK decided to invent a speaking program for his non-verbal autistic son. And soon it's going to be available for any windows PC.

He put his hand in her hand.
He put his hand to her heart.
Sweet is the sleep of hand-to-hand.
Sweeter still the sleep of heart-to-heart.


I am Nature, the universal Mother, mistress of all the elements, primordial child of time, sovereign of all things spiritual, queen also of the immortals, the single manifestation of all gods and goddesses that are. My nod governs the shining heights of heaven, the wholesome sea-breezes, the lamentable silences of the world below. Though I am worshipped in many aspects, known by countless names, and propitiated with all manner of different rites, yet the whole round earth venerates me.

Spider Woman

That is the Sun. You are meeting your Father the Creator for the first time. You must always remember and observe three phases of your Creation. This time of the three lights, the dark purple, the yellow, and the red reveal in turn the mystery, the breath of life, and warmth of love. These comprise the Creator's plan of life for you as sung over you in the Song of Creation.


Shared house

I was lucky enough to grow up in the shadow of an amazing house. It's been my family's summer home since my mom was a little girl, and many seasons it has housed as many of our extended family as we could fit. It's a place of shared memories, and it is magical.

And the house--a former hotel, built in the 1890s--really has a life of its own, so though it is my soul's home, I know I am only it's caretaker.

It has a name: Howland House

It has other families

It has a local history, and a cultural tradition

It's pretty cool
