Skarv – Cormorant 

Cormorants often dry their wings so I let clothes dry on the wings too 😉 Skarvar torkar ofta sina vingar, så jag lät hänga några kläder på vingarna och gjorde fjädermönster av klädnyporna 😉 Anna

The post that first planted the germ of an idea for this piece in my mind was published by Autism Mom under the title “Sometimes I don’t know what to think”. In it she mentions being at an autism related event and hearing someone talk about “curing” their son’s autism.

The other post that helped to spark this was published this morning on under the title “15 things I tell my friends when they’re facing an autism diagnosis”. As a sample of what to expect I offer two paragraphs (they are not contiguous in the actual piece)…
