In My Language - a person with autism speaks out.

This is the description for the video: "The first part is in my "native language," and then the second part provides a translation, or at least an explanation. This is not a look-at-the-autie gawking freakshow as much as it is a statement about what gets considered thought, intelligence, personhood, language, and communication, and what does not."

Paula Abdul drunk (video banned from YouTube)

Okay, I am not one to make fun of someone, but today is an exception because Paula, in my opinion, deserves it. If you watched American Idol Wednesday night, you saw a side to Paula that made the show reach an all-time low. I saw the most horrendous bashing of people, not only for their lack of talent, but for their physical appearances and other superficial quirks that had nothing to do with singing. I've grown to expect that from Simon, but even he was worse than his usual pompous self. Paula called one guy "awesome" (right after Simon said he looked like a bush baby), but as soon as he left the room, she broke into laughter and openly made fun of him right along with everyone else. Paula, dear, what is up with you? Here is my little way of giving Paula a taste of her own medicine. Go ahead and laugh. I did :o)

When Doves Fly

This is just a cute little video from the footage I had left on my camera. The doves are settled in with each other, and it looks like they are most comfortable with their fighting. At least no one gets hurt! I do keep an eye on them, though. I honestly think, at this point, they would miss each other if they were separated. Angel is far less demanding of my attention now that he has Rozee to pester. And Rozee is happy to be out of the cage for most of the day. He didn't have that before. In the video, you can see them swoop around the other's territory. It's like one is saying "Bring it on!" and the other one always complies. They are incredible to just watch. I use them for meditation.
I hope all of you are off to a good start in 2007. It's been quiet in my world, and I am simply enjoying the peace. Ahhhhh... the simple life...

Expect a Miracle in 2007

Why should you expect a miracle in 2007? Because here's one right now. I found some video footage of my baby dove, Miracle, who died last year. This is the reason why I film everything I see. The song I used is my favorite song of all time. I only used a couple lines in this short video, but they are my favorite lines of all time! There's something about Freddie Mercury's voice that makes me melt into my seat.

2007 is the year of miracles. It is the year of NINE. Triple three's! In September we will have three sets of triple three's - on September 9, September 18, and September 27. Each of these dates are 9 9 9. Very powerful! Expect miracles. Expect changes. You will be surprised...

I am starting off this year with miracles. I never thought it was possible for me to move out of government housing. But when I look around, everything has been replaced by beauty, tranquility, and abundance. I can't believe how peaceful it is here. No one is knocking on my door all day, every day. I can sleep in, it's so quiet. Even inside my apartment is sheer beauty. I am so blessed to have these two white doves, Angel and Rozee. They are getting along well, now, although they are not buddies who do things together. They have established their territories, dividing the living room into half. Each bird challenges the other to win over the other's territory at least once a day. They have their quiet times, too. It's amazing to just sit and watch how they communicate with each other, which they are doing all the time It's so crystal clear, and they are incredibly predictable. They have established their own daily routines.

People often ask me why I like birds so much. It's simple. They can fly! I have these wonderful symbols of freedom within my reach every day, reminding me of my own freedom, if I choose it.

I haven't made any New Year's resolutions, except to stay open to receive all the miracles that I know are coming my way. I hope you'll do the same.
