It’s been a relatively busy week for me— visiting three new locations in three days, the third only hours from now. All of them in Maine. I say ‘relatively’ because I’m unemployed. But I’ve met five new people so far, and have been getting out of my “comfort zone.” No reason for stress, though; it’s all family and support groups.
It’s kind of strange that the unrelated events occur two days apart from each other in sequence. First, was aunt J.’s visit on Tuesday. (Still processing all the over-ninety photos taken that day… not going to be a short post, I can tell you that!) Then, a support group for people on the autism spectrum, Thursday… (I was diagnosed with Asperger’s, if you didn’t know.) We walked for the day; the photo above was of a tree along the improvised path, since one person (probably the group leader) remarked of the ‘interesting’ bark. The group was moving too fast for me to effectively take photos, but I got a few shots of hills, lol. There were some dogs too… on the other side of the fence… something completely different.
If you’re wondering about the name of this post, well… the conversations entered Jurassic Park science, and approached Godzilla versus ____. Including a Venus flytrap. Which is dumb. Because, as one member explained, the Venus flytrap is so delicate that it needs to be in the right climate and needs the right set of nutrients… hell, it’s so delicate you could kill one poking it; it’s suitable around flies. But back to the point— Barney came up, and a thought came to me: Barney vs. Godzilla— a satire that the “dinosaur” wouldn’t behave very suitable for children. The thing is I didn’t speak up. …And I realized why I didn’t exactly fit in. But the social part I need.
I’ve adjusted a little to something of a morning schedule by the end of the week, in part to be there for my far away friend. (Hopefully, I won’t prematurely say “bye” in the next phone call with her, lol.) I’m not used to a morning schedule since high school, hence the lag in blogging; but any incentive to become more versatile and thus grow is a good thing. In concept, anyway.
…Okay. Time’s up. Must turn in. …And so, I shall say: good night, dear readers. 🙂
