Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.
Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.
Come to me, my sweetest friend. Can you feel my heart again? I’ll take you back where you belong, and this will be our favorite song. Come to me with secrets bare; I’ll love you more, so don’t be scared. When we’re old and near the end, we’ll go home and start again.

Saw them play this song last night. It was my first time hearing it and I loved it instantly.
Happily gettin’ my summer reading on.
"He can tell you things that happened two or three years ago. He can tell you the five largest moons of Saturn, and the distance from the Earth to the Sun. He can recite songs word for word. But early on, we noticed that he’d get very emotional around loud noises— like a blow dryer or loud birthday parties. He’d also get overwhelmed around things in motion. He had a very bad experience in an inflatable jumper at a party. We noticed these things early, identified that he was on the autism spectrum, and got him in therapy. We’ve been working hard on it with intensive therapy from a very young age, and we’re so much better. We still have some issues, but I think we’re outgrowing the symptoms. I tell everyone who will listen: ‘Early intervention, early intervention, early intervention.’"
