There was a time I could not get my son to hike with me. Autism has its challenges. Times have changed though and he likes getting out nowadays

Autism Awareness Month, Jack Poole Plaza, Vancouver, BC

This was shot at the Vancouver Olympics, just after Canada won the gold medal for hockey. It has brought great joy to communities around Vancouver and allays been an exciting moment for locals and tourists alike. It belongs to a fellow named Marc. Marc is a great fellow with a tremendous heart. Marc donates his time with the car, and even his movie collections to people experiencing autism. I currently work at the same agency as Marc, and have been privileged to be with him in meetings about life and this car. This car actually changes from time to time. In fact sometimes the car has a working water fountain with mermaids and different sculptures. However I think this time it was a special Olympic model.

 

This was shot with a Minolta SRT 201 & 400 speed Kodak Film

The goddess Bastet was usually represented as a woman with the head of a domesticated cat. However, up until 1000 BC she was portrayed as a lioness. Bastet was the daughter of Re, the sun god. It may have been through him that she acquired her feline characteristics. When Re destroyed his enemy Apep, he was usually depicted as a cat. As portrayed as a cat, she was connected with the moon (her son Khonsu was the god of the moon). When shown as a lioness, she is associated with sunlight.

Bastet was the goddess of fire, cats, of the home and pregnant women.

After years of freelance work to "pay the bills", I've decided to go back to university. That's right! I'm going for a MPS in Art Therapy. I'm shooting for Pratt Institute. For more information on the program: www.pratt.edu/creative_arts_therapy

 

My concentration will be on children. More specifically, those most in need. Those who've suffered the most terribly ---> in other words, the socio & economically disadvantaged, those sexually, emotionally and/or physically abused, the neglected & the abandoned children, as well as children diagnosed with Autism.

 

Let me know what you think --->

 

Any constructive criticism is also most welcome! I'm trying to earn my Master's in Art Therapy. BUT, I MUST FIRST take 19 additional undergraduate courses which will qualify my eligibility to apply. I WILL get in!

 

I firmly believe that together we CAN make a difference.

 

Thanks, in advance!

Folklore often represents corvids as clever, and even mystical, animals. Some Native Americans, such as the Haida, believed that a raven created the earth and despite being a trickster spirit, ravens were popular on totems, credited with creating man, and responsible for placing the Sun in the sky.

 

Various Germanic peoples highly revered the raven. The major deity Odin was so associated with ravens throughout history that he gained the kenning "raven god"[36] and the raven banner was the flag of various Viking Age Scandinavian chieftains. He was also attended by Hugin and Munin, two ravens who whispered news into his ears.[37] The Valravn sometimes appears in modern Scandinavian folklore.

 

The 6th century BC Greek scribe Aesop featured corvids as intelligent antagonists in many fables. Later, in western literature, popularized by American poet Edgar Allan Poe's work "The Raven", the Common Raven becomes a symbol of the main character's descent into madness.

SUMMER CAMP FUN AT PORPOISE BAY.

Photo Duane Burnett. The Local.

 

The 11th Annual ANCA Summer Camp

was held at Porpoise Bay Provincial Park

in Sechelt, recently. Families from all over

the Lower Mainland and the Sunshine Coast

attended the camp for kids, their parents and

siblings who are coping with Autism.

ANCA’s vision is to support autistic people

and their families, enabling them to ‘help

themselves.’ their philosophy is to provide an

understanding focusing on the autistic paradigm

from the inside out. e program allows

the autistic individual to self-reflect through

interactive group activities that encompass

all age groups, children, teens and adults. As

a result of these interactions they come to

recognize that there is nothing wrong with

being autistic; it is simply a different learning/

communications style. ANCA works to

support parents, educators and support staff

in the Autistic Developmental Support Systems,

and offers tools and effective strategies,

goals and objectives for positive educational

and developmental outcomes.

When a person is secure in whom they

are, how they feel and especially in how they

communicate, ineffective behavioral forms

of communications diminish, stress is relieved

as a result and a desire to be integrated

with all manner of human beings emerges.

Interests turn into joining clubs, recreational

and community events, apprenticeship,

college, university, a career or job with the

focus on interdependence.

ANCA provides training and awareness

workshop sessions for anyone who is genuinely

interested in learning about the Autistic

Paradigm. When you change the way you

think about, see and experience autistic people,

the way you think, see and experience

autistic individual’s changes! ANCA programs

for children, teen and adults—parents

and siblings run throughout the year with

three special annual events: ANCA Annual

Summer Camp-out at Porpoise Bay Provincial

campsite in Sechelt; the ANCA Annual

Presentation at Robson Square eatre in

Vancouver on October 19; and the ANCA

Christmas/Winter Open House at ANCA

House in Gibsons on December 13. For

About the Canucks Autism Network

 

In 1996 Paolo and Clara Aquilini listened in shock and disbelief as medical professionals diagnosed their son with autism.

In the following years Paolo and Clara experienced the trials and triumphs that come with raising a child with autism. They also began to live with the frustration of watching their beloved child struggle to participate in "normal" activities and at times be told that he was simply unable to do so.

 

Autism deeply affects not only the individual who is diagnosed, but also their families. As the rate of occurrence of autism continues to climb and existing programs become increasingly overwhelmed, Paolo and Clara’s hearts and prayers continually go out to other families facing the same turmoil and challenges.

 

Compelled by the growing need in the community and driven by their own personal experience, Paolo and Clara constantly searched for ways to support families living with autism. It is their profound desire to enhance the quality of life for families living with autism in BC.

 

This vision is the founding inspiration for the Canucks Autism Network and will guide us in our mission to provide high quality recreational, sports, social and vocational development programs for individuals and families living with autism and to build capacity through community networks across British Columbia.

 

You have the power to enhance the lives of individuals and families living with autism!

Sorghum is an ancient cereal grain and was collected 8000 years ago in Southern Egypt, in a place called Nabta Playa. Sorghum was domesticated in Ethiopia and Sudan and from there moved throughout all of Africa, where it remains an important cereal grain.

 

Sorghum likely traveled to India during the first millennium BC, taken as food on ships, and then continued to be disbursed along the silk trade routes. It most probably arrived in the Americas with slave traders from Africa in the 19th century.

 

Increased prevalence and diagnosis of celiac disease have led to strong growth in the gluten-free market, of which sorghum is a key component. While 40,000 to 60,000 Americans have been diagnosed as celiac, the federal government estimates there could be as many as 3 million undiagnosed. A gluten-free diet incorporating sorghum also has been adopted by many with autism, ADHD and irritable bowel syndrome, although research in this area is limited.
