independence is great test of the mind and body. looking at my future practice, opportunities in my daily life seem distant horizons. my hands reach out now to grasp your guidance. the muscles teach me patience as i generate intention. knowledge has potential. in my day, having planted intention, i work on growing action. in the morning everyone has coffee. i have sounds. normally i like to turn on multimedia sources of sound- my tv, ipad, and computer. the regular, predictable dialogues help me attune my hearing. i become awake and recognize my auditory channel. mom yells at me to turn off the cacaphony. i decrease the volume however i make note of my will to hear sounds.i hear the buzzing sound of electricity, the internet humming, and the air conditioning whooshing as its turned on. data generates sound too, like my frequencies of rice eating in my mouth, breathing in and out thru my nose, and the words that beg to hide in my head. in surrounding environment is the sound of real people- their daily prep, recessed verbal exclamations, and mechanical noises of the microwave operating. its breakfast. time to wake up to a new day in autism.
