Do you comment?: Yes, when i think it is relevant and i can be kind.
What kind of LJ friends are you looking for?: People who are on spiritual quests and who are tolerant and wise.

Any think else you would like to mention: Because i am autistic, i am easily overwhelmed by any kind of social interaction. There is a sort of strangeness about me that my friends have to get used to. I am an acquired taste. I also am very inept at using the computer, almost computer illiterate. I could not follow the instructions for this post, but i did want to participate.

:) Thank you.
After 82 years including five in Al-Anon, i do know myself a little but i am still pretty much a black box and people continue to tell me stuff about myself i didn't know.

Having gone through "Like Vines towards the Sun" I find that there is not a single Catholic on the list.

We are certainly not a random sample of the human population; though i did notice one Catholic you missed and another who has added a statement more recently.

Very pleased to know you here; my middle child age 28 is autistic but though she can read and write and do academics on about a 5th grade level, she is very low in most other aspects and needs help dressing and so on. She stims and has tantrums and is obsessed with the Nickelodeon channel and can tell you every single thing about it and about every show ever aired on that network, ha. I was raised Christian (Baptist) but am not religious now in holding to any one faith. I am however studying Buddhist thought right now and interested in its precepts, mostly due to my son. He was a Buddhist and since his death I am reading all the books he left behind.

I am very lucky that my autism left me with such i high level of fumctioning; my tantrums are more sophisticated and often go unnoticed. and i read well enough, but i think i understand at least a little how an autistic person And i know that trapped inside that strange brain is a person as valuable as anyone else.

I also remember Daniel and i sorrow that you have gone through so much. We will get to know each other better.

I applaud the intent, but my answers to more than half those questions would be, “Who wants to know?” and the other half is, “None o' yer dam' business!”

I'm gettin' crotchety in me old age.

You are one of my oldest LJ friends.
I value your insights and comments.
I find your path interesting,
very different from, but very compatable with my own.
