Dancing

These videos from The Autistic Pride Dancers really made me smile today.

Maybe it's because my little Adam, who is humming classical music now everyday (perfectly to Mozart, Bach and a little bit of Berlioz, I might add), has also taken up dancing, swaying his arms and trying to move his body to the beat. Maybe it's because art does not deliquesce autistic people to "abnormal genes" but rather, allows us all to see for ourselves the facund human spirit.

Adam, and all of this, makes me so proud.

Thanks, Ralph, for posting these!
