I’m very proud of my 3 tutees: 2 guys and 1 girl with High Functioning Autism / Asperger and high IQ with special interests, are doing so much better since we started working together a couple years ago. Working on self-acceptance knowing deeper who you are and what you can do in a same length of conversation has been doing wonders. I believe that for a teenager with autism/aspergers is much easier to connect with another one - with more experience -, than it is with a professional who’s not in the spectrum.
just arrived from the lab… the first 6 works (of 30) from the new 3 series are coming out from the oven. Here’s just a glimpse of what you’ll see at the exhibition.

Dare yourself to Think Positive!
Don’t ask me to be selective about violence, about injustice, about horror. We all bleed alike. I feel for all victims of any conflict around the globe we live in. For every situation showed on the news there is always another side.. Victims are everywhere, in Palestine, Israel or South Sudan. Wars we all heard about. And there are also the victims we see everyday, begging for money on the sidewalk or the ones struggling to keep up with life demands, working hard to feed the family, single parents, the underpayed teacher, etc. Victims too. We must not forget that behind statistics are real human beings. Persons that also bleed like us.
When I’m invited for social dinners as story teller, I’m always paid before dinner. Like you do with prostitutes. What I never understood is why people often ask me to tell the same stories, as if they were afraid of listening to new ones. Or fear to experiment new positions. So they can have the same reactions. And make the same safe questions. “Don’t forget to tell the story of when you slept with goats, so I can ask if you really did sleep because guests always laugh on that part”.
I see dead poets. And living poems.
Poetry is a form of overcoming constipation. As it is death.
Dead poets are plus belles que living poetry.
Happiness can be sign of dumbness and ignorance. If you want to look intelligent be unhappy or wear glasses. Although I believe that everybody should have the right to be unhappy. If you’re happy you’re not taking full advantage of life.
