Origins of Autism (Some thoughts, join the conversation)

Did you know dolphins discipline their young? And not just the mother. If a youngster is out of line, any of the older dolphins will rake their teeth across his body or give him a good smack with a tail.

Dolphins are like humans in other ways, we know. They are sociable and intelligent, even without domestication and training. Wild pods have been known to protect lost swimmers from sharks. It is believed they circle and protect their young in much the same way.

Facebook Fasting

We never really got along, Facebook and I. Sure, my voyeuristic tendencies would enjoy the sampling of other people’s drama, provided they weren’t too melodramatic or annoying about it by dragging negative energies on for weeks.

My First Love

My first love was a girl. Do I call it love? Admiration, certainly. Respect, yes. An aching desire to know anything I could about her—emphatically so. But at the time, love was the stuff of songs and storybooks and I did not yet know the magic.

I had recently moved to this new town, and as an eighth grader climbed onto the school bus the same morning a bunch of third graders had learned what the word ‘lesbian’ meant.…
