“Music expresses that which cannot be said, and on which it is impossible to be silent.” – Victor Hugo
We all find ways of coping with the challenges of Spectrum life. I run, I write. I pray a lot. Music is also pretty high on my list.
These are those songs – it’s my Au-some Autism Playlist. While they don’t all, word for word, match every emotion I have felt during the past six years since we were diagnosed, they do represent a nice spectrum of feelings that, to me, represent what’s most important in this journey – Love, acceptance, bravery, determination and spirit.
