Friends,

I just don’t have it in me today. I have a wonderful story to share, but it’s just not today’s story, ya know?

Anyway, I couldn’t leave you with nothing, so I’m going to share some posts that I’ve read in the last week that have either made me think, laugh, or cry — OR — think, laugh AND cry all at the same time. It’s a trick, folks.

So here goes ..

.

Autistic is Okay by Stimey at Stimeyland (please take heed around kids; she swears – right out of the gate in caps, but the post is awesome so find a quiet minute and check it out.)

For more on person-first language, I also invite you to read my post, the oh-so-creatively named Person First

Edited to add: I just discovered this post on the topic as well and … well, wow … so, yeah, read this too, okay? Disability First: Autism is not an Accessory by Zoe at Illusion of Competence

.

Wordplay by Alysia at Try Defying Gravity

.

Autism, Passing, And What It Costs Us All by Linda at Outrunning the Storm

.

TPGA’s Position on Autism Organizations That Support Autistic People by the editors of Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism

.

I hope that tides you over for today.

I’ll see you tomorrow, my friends.

Ed note: Late breaking (insert beep beep beep) news. I’m adding one. Cause I can. A Bicycle Built for One by Glennon at Momastery. You’ll know why.
