  1. I've got the feeling I have to make an update here: Now my son has reached age 17 I'm in fact moderating a self-help group of young people on the spectrum (aged 16-25), with (by now) 7 participants (4 male, 3 female). We're meeting every 4 weeks, since fall 2020 (the rules here allow face-2-face meetings of self-help groups for medical reasons for a number of diagnoses, e.g. autism, even during the lockdown phases).
  2. Nicely put; graphically interesting
  3. Antidepressants are evil read more (it's a German page, but the article is in English)
  4. Back to: Revolutions (see post #780) - halfway through by now (and with this book, you know exactly where the middle is)*. * you are suggested to read from both ends at the same time
  5. At work, I have told no one. I'm sceptical about "coming out" in this respect.

  7. Did a binge re-reading of C.S.Forester's Hornblower books. By chance I found: Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Only a novel, but, well, good to read ...
  8. That's exactly what my parents allowed me, luckily, to do some 33 years ago.
  9. Re-read: Italo Calvino: Il cavaliere inesistente (The Nonexistent Knight)
  10. Jack Richardson: Jack in the Navy (re-read) Mark Z. Danielewski: Only Revolutions
  11. Some autistics are able to maintain a "facade" during the day (at school, at work, among strangers) and totally let go at home. The higher the stress level when "out", the more disturbing the actions when in "sheltered" surrounding. Of course, you have to protect your younger son. You may want to read: Freaks, Geeks & Asperger Syndrome: A User Guide to Adolescence by Luke Jackson and: George & Sam: Two Boys, One Family, and Autism by Charlotte Moore
  12. Here's Rickard Jonasson's take on the original question: http://www.twogag.com/archives/3480
  13. Just finished re-read of Ulysses (started one week ahead of this year's Bloomsday).
  14. I'm very much into Belgian comics. So, Asterix, Gaston Lagaffe, Spirou, the Smurfs, Tintin, but there's also the authors Flix or Ralf K├Ânig. (look them up!)
