Hello every botty (oh God now I’m stealing my children’s lines!). Sorry. Hello everybody! Please mark in your diary’s that next week on April the 2nd is Autism Awareness Day. As some of you may know my 7 year old son has Asperger Syndrome (a mild form of autism). Today I was made the Creative Director of our local Autism/Asperger Group. I feel very proud, protective and honoured to be part of this very special community. There are many children with all different forms of Autism, and many more will be diagnosed. So perhaps next Wednesday, whether you know someone with Autism, or someone with an autistic child, perhaps you could send a thought, prayer or simply have a cup of tea, or raise your glass to these very special individuals we have been blessed with.
p.s My oil painting “Autism 7.14.21” is now available for sale as a card. (Any awareness to help my beautiful boy and others like him).
