Looking out into the distance.

Dad that’s a top View. Unbeatable.”

It is. Completely fogged out. Can’t see more than 5 yards in front of us. See kids with Aspergers can do irony.

The garden could be beautifully cut and looking like a football pitch before a major cup final. Wonderfully straight stripes.”

Now he is in full irony mode. It’s more like a cow field at present.

Since we don’t have a view to look at we have license to make our own one up. I’m seeing Whitby Habour on a stormy day.

Dad I’m seeing one image. Do you remember that day when I stood on top of the world. I loved that.”

I so do. He was about 5 and we ventured onto his first mountain. A beautiful Swiss one. Glorious blue skies. Fresh alpine air. Surrounded by dream like peaks. The two of us having a crazy snowball fight. My partner and her mum happily sat in the mountain top restaurant having hot chocolate.

A beautiful moment.

This can be such a wonderful life if we only just give it a chance.

  1. Living in, and being aware of, what is happening around you – and being aware too of the ‘possibilities’ – like the Wembley pitch outside your foggy window – is one of the positive ways to let life be as beautiful as you want it to be. Clearly you are both doing well in this regard… at least at the time of posting! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Of course, life does not always appear ‘wonderful’; that’s how it works, there is both good and bad (and extremes of both) ‘out there’. The trick is to gain as much control of yourself as you can so as to fully enjoy the good bits while you experience them and put up with and move on from the bad bits without getting dragged to far down. There are strategies one can learn on how best to do this.

    You already seem to be doing quite a few! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Do you have as much ‘real’ world support though as you do in the virtual world??

    Hope the fog lifts! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Maybe you could book a half hour after-school time with that ‘Next teacher’ from the “Nothing To Say” teacher’s night before she leaves and see what the two of you together can come up with to help out? She may even have some tips for homeschooling?? ๐Ÿ™‚
