The Oilseed Crops are stunning at this time of year.

Just a carpet of yellow.

As we walk along the path I ponder the chances of being ambushed by a group of barbarians in giant banana costumes. Son wonders if this would be the perfect location for Pikachu to hide.

As we walk along son suddenly asks

Why do I have dyslexia?”

Son already knows the answer but it’s vagueness, it’s lack of clarity doesn’t sit well with his way of thinking. You can’t give him a definite answer. All you can do is reassure him that Dyslexia has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence. Having Dyslexia does not mean your stupid. It just means you learn in different ways. You tell him all the wonderful people who are dyslexics. The wonderful careers, the unbelievable achievements. Dyslexia doesn’t stop you dreaming.

I suddenly start signing the Beetles song ‘Yellow Submarine’.

And John Lennon.

We go back to silence and yellow.

    1. Great Photos – Green and Gold are our National Colours here. πŸ™‚

      The ‘why’s are always the hardest one’s to answer… and the one’s that bother the questioner the most!

      Why is that, I wonder?? πŸ˜‰

      1. Oh dear GOD. That stuff is AWFUL. I know all about Canola, unfortunately. Canadian machine oil and, in its original form, toxic to humans. They had to hybridize it to make it less toxic. And, 90% of it is GMO! Even non-gmo canola is terrible. It is, literally, not designed for human consumption.

  1. That’s an impressive list of people with dyslexia.
    “Dyslexia doesn’t stop you dreaming” – I love that and I hope that your son’s dreams become real for him.
    Stunning photos!


  2. My brother-in-law is dyslexic and was written off at school but he can fix anything. He runs his own very successful business. He has two sons, both dyslexic, and the younger one also has Aspergers. The older one is a aeronautical engineer and earns very good money working on private jets. The younger one works in a customer facing role in retail. Neither have been held back by labels – anything is possible.

  3. Oh my, those photos! The yellow is absolutely gorgeous.
    Part of my degree was for teaching kids with learning issues like dyslexia, and spending time with them was one of my greatest joys. They had to work SO much harder than their peers but they were beautifully proud of themselves when they got it. πŸ’›
