Autumn Bucket List


"The Cardboard Kingdom"

May 16th.

My poetry anthology

"Never settle with anyone who tells you to stop being so excited, to cheer up, to calm down, to stop feeling sad, or to stay positive. You are allowed to feel different things. You are allowed to feel everything. Anything. All of it. And you should be with someone who cherishes and respects that, no matter what."

"It’s actually quite unnerving to think about choices and time. Each minute of every day, we’re consciously and unconsciously making choices, whether they are small or big. We choose to lie down on our beds for ten more minutes. We choose to drive rather than take a bus. We choose to take a path over another. Whether we are aware of it or not, we’re choosing a certain thing over another at just about every moment. With each choices, we’re making a different timeline of our lives. By choosing to, let’s say, stay in bed for 10 more minutes, we curve from the timeline that would have led to us doing something else during those minutes, and we’ll never know if whatever that was would have brought us something amazing or not. That’s quite unnerving for me because what if my small choices and actions add up to a diversion from discovering and having something wonderful?"

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
