I find it amazing...


... what the mind is capable of. Don't you feel as if greatness is just locked away somewhere in our brains, waiting to be released? That's what I've been thinking about after reading that autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire sketched this panorama of the New York City skyline after a brief helicopter ride-- from memory. I am astounded. See more at A Cup of Jo.

I love that you said greatness is locked away in our brains... He is amazing...

Maybe that explains a lot about me, the greatness is locked up inside, I'm not sure I'll ever find the key.

Stephen Wiltshire's work and ability is genius.

Seriously amazing. Fascinating. I think you're right that we all have this in us, we just don't know how to unlock it. That's part of why I'm looking forward to when all the locks come off in the next life!

Having had a front-row seat at the creation, I am convinced our brains are filled with so, so much.

Our spirits, too.

It's the body that mucks it up. Soft pillows, gravity, hot cherry crumble.

The list of mortal baddies goes on and on.

Sounds like J has a big 'S' tat somewhere on his person.

I once was an aide to a very tall autistic twelve year old girl. All day long we moved from class to class and in each class she drew red hearts with her permanent red marker. Once her paper was full, she ripped it off the giant pad and the process began again.
She never uttered a word and I cannot help but think of her every time I see a red heart.
It will be an amazing moment when her brain is unlocked and her heart set free.
