This is a shot of Shannon [my oldest daughter who was 29 in March 2014 and is autistic] when she was 5 years old in 1990. She loved and still loves the ocean – I love this photo because it shows her unbridled joy and exuberance over the waves and the water. She is unaware of anything but the waves. She has such excitement and joy which is so over the top for those things she loves, as seen here.

Taken at Ocean Grove NJ when I was almost ready to pop – meaning I was 8 1/2 months pregnant with my middle daughter and taken with a Kodak disaposable camera – yes folks for real. When I turned them in I always got the negatives and then later went back and requested they put my negatives on CD disks for the computer.

I dedicate this to her, my sweet angel, and to all other autistic people who see the world through different eyes than us mortals. In a correspondence with an adult autistic woman, she told me that “normal” people are not ready to see the explosion of colors in the world – that I had no idea what colors are really in the sky. it certainly made me think…who is the one truly handicapped?
