You may not be her first, her last, or her only.  She loved before; she may love again.  But if she loves you now, what else matters?  She’s not perfect — you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together, but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can.  She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break — her heart.  So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give.  Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.

You’ve said that maturity is “a matter of progressing ever closer to your ideal self.”  What is your ideal self?
To travel this world without being tied to others.  Not in the sense of crossing the sky like a bird.  My meaning stems from the fact that people constantly compare themselves to others.  They find it difficult to decide the best way to live, I guess, and comparisons help them evaluate their own situation.  A person can attain pure freedom only by being set free from being a person.
What would you tell parents who are sad that their child has been diagnosed with autism?
I don’t think of my autism as a misfortune.  You may be stuck, your suffering may be ongoing, but time flows on.  What your child needs right now is to see your smile.  Create lots of happy memories together.  When we know we are loved, the courage we need to resist depression and sadness wells up from inside us.

Time Is…

Time is…
Too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice,
But for those who love,
Time is…
Eternity.
Days fly,
Flowers die,
Pass by…
Love Stays.

Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.  Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.  Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.

My Children

It is not how much I have gathered
Through my honest work or even greed
In the end possessions won’t matter
But what flowers from each planted seed
I wanted them to have all my heart
And leave no part of my love unused
Give them an easier place to start
Let them find their own dreams to pursue
I wonder will they remember well
The lessons that I have tried to teach
Those things that I tried to gently tell
To show that hope is within their reach
To show them not to stand on the stage
Instead intermingle with the crowd
Always have the want to turn the page
Be the one of whom they could be proud
They’re the footprints that I leave behind
They will be my only legacy
They will be the story brought to mind
When my grandchildren remember me

And maybe, just maybe, it’s not always about showing the glitzy, polished parts of yourself.  Anyone can love that.  Maybe it’s about showing the broken, sharp-edged pieces of yourself to people.  Maybe that’s how you do it…  Find the one who truly loves you.  You have to to weed out the people who can’t see the beauty within your brokenness.
