See, sometimes you just need a break from gloom, doom, and folks who insist in being mired in negativity. In this way, as well, we can as a community counter the sourpusses of AoA.
Have pictures of a past spring? Play along, and add them as a post to your blog.
Have a moment to shout out to a parent or autistic person who you think deserves a high five for a positive attitude or a scrappy attitude? Add it to the picture!
I have so many folks that it seems like a slight to not note them all. So, if you haven't seen my blog list, scroll down and find it. If they're on there, I think they have something awesome to offer.
But a special shout out has to go to the first two bloggers I ever read and who play an important role in my life:
Kathleen at Autism Herd.
Jeanette at What are They Thinking?
And a hearty I hope spring soon blooms where you are to all my internet friends.
And to those other bloggers who give me my material, I offer the sincerest wish that spring will bloom for each of you, that anger will lessen, that depressions will lift, that clarity of mind will come your way, that you will each find the simple beauty in a single moment, that you will hold it to you and cherish it so that it nourishes you through the cold wintery times-- it seems to me Steinbeck had something with the whole "this is the winter of our discontent" thing. You've been there long enough.
