In My Life- by Sarah Cailin

I feel I may have been unintentionally dishonest when I wrote on one of my other posts. I said I have autism, but perhaps I should have said that I feel I have autism. You see, I grew up in the time period of the movie ‘Rain Man’ and I think that’s what people thought…

Hi- by Sarah Cailin, B. Sparkly & Sugarplum

Had a really pleasant surprise this morning to wake up and discover that this blog has followers.  🙂 We know that we can count all of you on one hand, but we’re glad you are out there and we just want to say ‘hi’ and ‘thanks’. You’ve made our day feel giddy. 🙂

The Moth and the Cupboard- by Sarah Cailin
