  1. Do you always organize your bookshelves in RoyGBiv? That’s how I organize my closet! It loos like art 🙂

    1. It is so nice to know that you are nearby!

      Yep. I’ve got RoyGBiv on the bookshelves, in the closet, and my art supplies! Good grief. If you ever need anyone to organize your ballpoint pens or crayons, I’m your gal! 🙂

      Thank you for dropping by!


  2. And no wonder boy is so intelligent and inquisitive, he has a momma who is so VERY creative herself. Wow! Awesome post! You have given me so many ideas for all our photos of Teddy lining up his stuff!!! Love, love, love your attitude!

    1. Charlotte, thank you for the sweet words! I am glad to know that another mother has lots of pics of her kid’s creations. I was fascinated when I saw Tyoma begin to line things up. The symmetry and order seemed so–practiced. I have always found his creations beautiful. It is a delight to find I am not alone! Thank you for dropping by!


  3. That is great! I liked playing the marble game with T! It was fascinating to watch his mind working.

    1. Thank you Pat! You were so good to us when you came to visit. I am still moved by the time you took to understand Asperger’s and how easily you worked with T. It was a joy to have you! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Leah! I saw a spectrum library long ago and had to replicate it. It confounds my poor hubby, though, since I’m the one with the “photographic” memory who knows each title’s color! 🙂

  4. You created an amazing illustration! This is so wonderful and perfect. I cannot give you enough praise for your brilliance here. I love this!! Excellent work. Lori, you are spectacular in SO many ways and I see it in your son too. Genetic brilliance! 🙂

    1. Angel!

      I appreiciate your encouragement and sweet words. I’ve had fun putting together my little project. Sometimes it’s easier to play with colors than words. Thank you, as always for the support and fuzzy feelings! 🙂


  5. Thanks for giving us a fun game to play. My boy LOVES marble runs. Do you know about kinetic sculptures? I am sure you do.

    1. Cool! I love marbles for a hundred reasons! We have a local toystore that carries unusual varieties for about a quarter each. I could fill a dozen socks! I’ve hear of kinetic sculptures, but I need to refresh myself. Thanks for the suggestion!


    1. Oh, Gasp! I just looked at the website! That looks like so much fun! I hope to get to NM in the next year and go to Tuscon with the folks. This would be a perfect trip for the family! Thanks!


  6. FANTASTIC!!! OH, you are so talented and creative, and such a good MOM!!!! Loved this, so much. Very light-filled and wonderful. My son used to take out all the pots and pans. he he……. he mostly organized blocks and his plastic animals. This brought back memories. Really awesome post. Yay!!!! 🙂

  7. I love this! Thank you for sharing. I have a 3.5 year old who was diagnosed with an ASD a few weeks ago. I often watch his ‘play’, wondering where it will take him. I know that he ‘plays’ quite deliberately, and although others would say, you need to stop him from doing that, I think to myself ‘No, I suspect there is far more to it than you or I can understand just yet. I need to keep watching so I can learn how to give him what he needs to progress the way he wants to’. The world is a better place because of these beautiful little people. This is a beautiful post. Bless.

    1. Thank you Jade, for visiting. Please excuse my late response, we had a dental emergency!

      Welcome to the club of ASD parents. I am excited for you, it will be quite a journey! I very much like your observation that your child plays “deliberately.” When I first read descriptions of autistic play being “pointless,” I was confused and devastated. You have the right idea–there is more going on than people understand. We are raising the first genration of children with the science to explore the wiring of the developing autistic mind. We are in for lots of exciting news!

      I feel strongly that children must have downtime–to play, stim and pursue activities that please them. School and daycare can be so socially overwhelming, children need to relax.

      I suggest a visit to ASD Culture: http://asdculture.wikispaces.com/ . KarlA is an autistic adult who works hard to help people understand ASD and ASD kids. It’s nice to meet you, Jade. Thank you for the thoughtful comment!
