Asperger's Syndrome is NOT all about dysfunction and disability etc. There are many good points and advantages to being an Aspie. Here's a refreshingly different perspective from the medical profession, by Dr Tony Attwood…
From my clinical experience I consider that children and adults with Aspergers Syndrome have a different, not defective, way of thinking.
The person usually has a strong desire to seek knowledge, truth and perfection with a different set of priorities than would be expected with other people. There is also a different perception of situations and sensory experiences. The overriding priority may be to solve a problem rather than satisfy the social or emotional needs of others.
The person values being creative rather than co-operative.
The person with Aspergers syndrome may perceive errors that are not apparent to others, giving considerable attention to detail, rather than noticing the "big p

Star Children - 'The Diamond Children'...(Not by me)Star Children - 'The Diamond Children'...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We are now familiar with the terms: Indigo Child, Crystal Child and Rainbow Child. But not many have heard the term "Diamond Child", or "Diamond Children". This is because, unlike their predecessors, a diamond child is not here to change things. A diamond child will rarely bring attention to him or herself, and will often move through life undetected.
So why are they here? Lets look at where the name comes from. A Diamond is a great conductor of light and energy. Unlike Crystal, which is similar but extremely delicate and can shatter easily, Diamond is one of the hardest and most difficult to destroy natural rocks on Earth. Yet in the dark, it is invisible.
Diamond children are the same. While in the dark, they are as invisible as anyone else on Earth. But once they start conducting, or channeling, light and energy, you will never meet a brighter, more pure light on E

Dragon Poem...(Not by me)Dragon Poem...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some say they never were,
And were birthed from imagination.
The same say that fantasy
Is the realm of children and the insane.
To believe in the magical, the mythical,
And the fantastic
Is to be as a child or a madman.
I am neither and I believe in dragons.
The majestic Lords of skie
Born of fire.
In an averie of flames
The eggs lie
Warmed by mothers breath.
Emerging weak and hungry,
Unfurl for the first time.
For mothers attention.
Noble, proud and powerful
Lords of the skie
Reach the very stars with
A thermal sigh
And one thunderous wingbeat.
Upon the winds they soar

AMPHISBAENA - An African dragon with two heads, one at the end of its long tail and at the head end. It has a curiously bird like body with the feet of a rooster, and by grasping the tail head with the other is able to travel by rolling around in this hoop. Usually portrayed as having a scaly body and a pair of feathered wings. The modern day lizard was named for this known dragon.
AMPHITERE - This type of dragon can be found in Britain, the Middle East, Egypt, and several Latin American countries such as Peru.
