i’m a 40-something year old taurus woman mom grandma aunti daughter who sews.
i go by twhich… twhich aye… michele.
i sense the world through colors, scents, feelings – tactile and emotion, nature. i was diagnosed with asperger’s syndrome (an autism spectrum disorder) when i was around 11 or 12. i have a hard time expressing/deciphering emotion and sensing time. sewing has helped me with that. it has been a window to inner worlds and self-knowledge not easily accessible. a visible tactile record of the journey.
sometimes it takes me a looong time to comment. that is just me making sure i ‘get’ any hidden meanings or implications. i also have problems with that.
i didn’t divulge my asperger’s/autism on my other blog. it’s an awkward thing to introduce. i grew up with a mother who did not believe in these things. so it’s not in the front of mind when interacting in the ‘real’ world, i’ve learned (i think?) to compensate. but i see in this virtual world, i think it makes a difference for me. i’ve haven’t done a good job adjusting for the differences. at least inwardly. blogging has been a little stressful because of this. and i don’t think it should be. maybe disclosing this will ease something for me.
besides all of that… i’m an AVID fan of old sci-fi, dystopian lit, cyberpunk, og star trek, firefly/serenity and The Doctor. and i used to be an Information Technology Systems Analyst for a major casino.
and i’m the head misfit of the BIG hearts…
