I knew nothing about autism and nothing about being non-verbal. Hell, I knew nothing about having a son.
If there was any chance that we could have the relationship that I envisioned rather than the one I feared, I was going to do everything in my power to make it happen.
I never dreamed he’d play such a pivotal role in my home, but here he is.
They’re my song inspirations and my entire captive studio audience.
Most people will go their entire lives and never have what he and I have. Most people would never even understand it.
Then again, it’s hard being a parent at all. Actually it’s hard just being alive sometimes.
This kid is made of steel. He’s like a Batman villain.
This wasn’t a debate or disagreement. This was performance art.
Some of the most beautiful human beings I have ever met have told me horror stories about interactions with some of the vilest individuals out there.
I often say that the world should try to be a little more like my son. We’d all be better for it.
