Sleep, blogging, playing Cityville or something like that. Laundry, and doing chores.
I'm not the kind of person to complain I can't sleep.
2. Do you ALWAYS keep an open mind?]
Do you think I'm a saint?
3. Who is the wisest person you know?
My gram was wise, my dad was, in a way, and alive: the Dalai Lama.
4. Who is the strongest person you know?
5. How would we tell by your behavior if you are having a bad day?
Depends where the bad comes from.
When it's pain you can see my movements differ.
When it's the boys I'm overly patient and calm.
And when it's paperwork you might hear a complaint somewhere.
6. Does your ego sometimes get in your way?
Noop. The advantage of being a buddhist is that I became aware ego is bad for you.
7. Do you believe in Zen? If yes, can it be mastered?
You first have to give a description of what you understand zen is.
All I can say is that I'm from a different buddhistic tradition.
Zen came to be far after buddhism developed and it changed tremendously under the Meiji dynasty.
Different masters tell different stories about what Zen is, so...
I do believe meditation is a good way to find your peace inside and to come to understand more of your own nature.
8. Do you believe you could teach someone, like your child, to be competitive?
No need I have to teach that, as the schoolsystem creates enough competition.
I don't think I'm a good teacher of competition, because I think one should strive to work as hard and as good as possible, regardless of what others do.
9. Do you believe home is not a place but rather a state of mind?
Yes. I sure do.

Here you'll find impressions of my life as a mother of a few children with autism spectrum disorder and a person with heartfailure, some critical reviews of what going on in the world, including medical issues and political subjects. And everything else that keeps me busy.
I'm very honest about my experiences with autism, because only that way I can show how much of a struggle daily life with autism can be.
A series of posts
about lack of knowledge,
lack of concensus between disciplines
and the need for a formal diagnosis
with a psychiatric label
to get support for a unique individual
autism and (no) school.
