Sharing: Beyond eye contact

I meant to post this on my “reblog blog”, but it ended up here instead lol. ย I’ll keep it here because I’m still on break for an undetermined length of time. ย (Probably not too long, but not ready to come back just yet.)

In the meantime, please enjoy this post from a new blogger whose blog is off to a great start! ย An adult-realized Aspie ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Mild Autistic Spectrum Disorder

Being diagnosed with Autism later in life is a very strange experience. Because it hasnโ€™t just influenced my behavior. Apparently, it has also informed my likes and dislikes, my taste in food, my preferences in dressing, and much more. Iโ€™ve had a very special relationship with music since a very early age; later in life I became fascinated by early Flemish and German painters (like Jan Van Eyck, who painted The Arnolfini Portrait in 1434).

I like many styles of music. I understand most of it, and I happen to know quite a lot of different kind of music. But the music really I love, the soundtrack of my life, is repetitive music: very early one-note Blues and Worksongs, a certain kind of Reggae, Ravelโ€™s Bolero, Terry Rileyโ€™s A Rainbow in Curved Air, Mbira music from Sub-Saharian Africa, Hip hop instrumentals, someโ€ฆ
