Larry descends an escalator in Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
The padding on plane seats on the way home from Denver this past Saturday was not as plush as our hotel beds but we were not complaining with all the precariousness of wintry storms canceling flights left and right from not-very-warm Chicago.
People like Tracy and I look at this picture of modern travel as uptown people in a large city do, moving to a place in lucky-to-find-something downtown area, popular for gourmet restaurants and lots of powered-with-neon lights stores. Owning the world of purposeful communication places us now in the neighborhood of primarily planning for renovation of attitudes about disability, learning with openness, passionate about politics of presuming competence, and lasting longer potentially than New England winters, people of lots of diverse backgrounds.
Larry longs to ride on the escalator to novel world of acceptance of disability. Looking at spanning paths of movie presentations of across the country, Tracy and I lead people to more positive views of autism, patterning our travels with airport, going possibly on a diet after, dining and opening pockets up, security checks.
Let’s pick up this meandering, partly ordered with language of insight, blog next week when we travel to Houston to bring our message to Jewish teenagers at the annual BBYO Regional Conference.

Little people look small inside places of large, really-meant-for-popstar-spectacles, spaces. Larry and Tracy put on their walking shoes this morning in more-mountainous-than-Vermont Denver, peacefully quiet, less crowded, nearly modern in most architecture. People at the TASH conference here will be seeing our movie, eating meals with Coors beer and looking to be captivated by our post-movie, later than my bedtime, remarks.
People like us might look small in this picture of the skyline of powerfully terrain-dominating buildings but our ideas about looking small, but parachuting in big perspectives in presuming competence into the landscape of attitudes about disability bring places into lasting nearly as long as the pyramids in terms of their attitudes about movies on oddballs like Tracy and Larry. Only slightly less odd are Pascal and Harvey, especially when they have on their synthetically made, with pleasing-to-their-figures, running clothes.
Larry and Tracy tour the city of Denver while attending TASH 2010!

Planning each word in my blog is like searching for a good price on special gifts for Christmas on Black Friday in places like packed with mostly lesser quality merchandise like space hogging TV’s Walmart. Patterned language is much easier speaking but only empties out dramatics of food and TV urges, possibly popping out impulses to make sudden purchases to last minute sales pitches from frenetic store clerks. Let me be the master of my own ideas and thoughts through typed communication and I will be able to put out lights of intelligence on the tree of expression on any day of the year including weekends and holidays.
Having opportunities like blogging is a gift I place more value on than any material possession and I want to thank all of you who have taken time out going off center from your online shopping sentence-free journeys to read my commercial-free words.
