Aspie Kid

 

Reminiscing

 

At the end of this year’s Autism Awareness Month I posted A Beautiful Mind

Commemorating one of the most intellectually gifted members of the Autism social media community that I have ever encountered.

Sadly he has withdrawn from social media but his writing legacy lives on.

 

A Treasure Trove

I was overjoyed to discover that one of his posts had been archived!

 

Remarkably I have now discovered a further 5 posts which have been faithfully archived in @ELyssaD’s website ‘The Powers That Beat’

  • There are no words to describe my feelings of gratitude

 

This collection was written during his last 5 months of blogging covering a vast spectrum of subject matter.

 

Lawful is one of his last posts – perhaps it was his last.

As ever, his attention to and presentation of detail was enchanting and his gift for the narrative hypnotic.

 

A candle and a yellow ribbon

For those of you who knew, enjoyed and loved Aspie Kid’s writing – here is a permanent reminder of that Beautiful Mind.

For those who never knew him, I offer you this priceless glimpse of some of his finest hours.

 

And to you Aspie Kid, my friend, we miss you, we miss your insights and we miss your writing.

Be well my Friend

 

Once Upon a Time

    The last post was ‘What would you have done?’ where he explained what happened that lead him to disappearing from the Internet. If you like, I can paste it in here in the comment section on this post, or email it to you.

    His posts remained in my feed reader (feedly/google reader) when his blog disappeared, so his posts back to 11 December 2011 still sit there. So they are not lost. If you like I can copy them from the feeder & email them to you, then you can ‘archive’ them here on your blog if you like, so people can still find them and read them. Yes it is great writing and a great pity he closed down his blog.

    Thanks Mados,

    I have been thinking about this for a while.

    The posts that I found were already in the public domain, so I am comfortable bringing them together on my website.

    However, I need to recognize that for whatever reason, Aspie Kid chose to remove all records of his other work from the public domain and I need to be mindful of and respect his wish for privacy.

    On reflection therefore, I have decided not to post (republish) any of his other work without his express permission.

    I don’t think I have the right to publish what he chose to remove from the public domain.

    I think if I were in his shoes, I would probably want the same thing.

    I do however want to thank you for you kindness and thoughtfulness.

    It is good to find someone who was as fond of his work as I was.

    Yeah – miss xem.
    There was another one, I’d like to read again – “The power of suggestion” – wonder if you have it.
