crafting clement space

Lucy has been busy inspiring this autistic Bunny yet again. We are crafting “Clement Space in the City (2017)” – getting ready for the Neurodiverse-city exhibition at the Customs House, Sydney, opening 20 September 2017! All part of a huge and amazing project, the BIG Anxiety festival 2017.

(Sorry, all Lucy-fans out there, I will not be taking her to the festival – not unless someone is willing to sponsor a return Business Class ticket on Qantas and the preparation costs.)

unspeak

A confluence of chaotic sensorially triggering and overwhelming situations.

Stress. Anxiety. Internal fear.

Stress. Anxiety. External, jabbing, aggressive intrusions.

Sensory assault from nature and being too finely attuned to natural elements.

Mental-emotional weariness from human-centric interactions.

An accidental nudge. A spilled glass. Honey and lemon puddle.

Two Minute Meltdown.

Gazing at an Angel. Clemency seeping back.

Unspeaking. Unable to speak. Yet vociferous. Hurtling words. Physical scribbles helter skelter inside headscpace.

Tiredness.

Exhaustion.

Keeping on keeping on.

Bunny, Bunny, the show… on with the show!

Tally Ho!

A friend of mine once gently chided me with what he felt to be sage advice: “Stop looking at the past and just move on.” To be fair to my friend, this is a very good maxim in all intents and purposes, and for many, it could mean essential survival strategy. However, for me, the past is crucial, absolutely indispensable to my present and the future. Continue reading

bolognese and afflatus

The kangaroo mince I ordered for Lucy arrived at last. The Canidae grain free dry food too. In the flurry and stress of the Grand Finale episode with the thieving cheat Miss L, I had failed to order both on time, and for four days, had to feed my baby girl with minced beef from the local grocer. Well, there was still some minced beef left in the fridge, I had a careful sniff at the stuff, and it was still good, but not to my satisfaction for raw feeding. So, I decided to cook it for myself.

breakfast inspiration

breakfast inspiration

Today’s breakfast was less weird. Avocado, anchovies, chopped red onion and tomatoes, olive oil. That is it. Brain food? Maybe. Whatever the case, this yummy breakfast has indeed set some thoughts in motion.

For me, and most Aspies with a passion for some subject or activity, almost everything in our lives can be constructively linked to our intensely-focused interests. Even the most horrendous experiences, once overcome and dusted off, linger on forever as pieces of analytical and inspirational fodder for my work. Continue reading

tofu and theories of minds

I had a very disturbed night. Lucy woke up at 3am to go outside. She did a nice poo, which was a relief to me, because I have been worrying about her bright orange runny poo since Christmas. It’s firming up and becoming a less alarmingly bright colour now. Phew! I was having unpleasant dreams though. Waking up several times in a pool of tears. The good thing was when I finally woke up at dawn, there was sitting in my mind, a clear visual image of the design for the frame for my drawing, which shall be a part of an upcoming group exhibition. I am looking forward to drawing again.

It was a quiet Sunday morning at the studio, just me and Lucy, tidying and musing, and reading about aisthesis, while listening to Chopin on my iPad. I had a weird brunch comprising leftover chips from last night’s fish and chips dinner, leftover salad which my lovely friend prepared, and leftover overcooked beef cubes from the clement barbecue with Rick. Upon returning home, I was hungry again, so I cut and baked the tofu, which was sitting in the fridge for ages. It was still good.

So, what is it that has been bothering me in my subconscious? A very real and conscious issue, it seems. Continue reading

pretty food

Choc-Coconut Paleo-Friendly Cupcakes from LAZY GIRL FITNESS

Lazy Girl Fitness is an inspiration. I am way off the mark for the stuff prescribed but I find inspiration in tangential bouncing boards, and her blog is one of them. And of course, photos of the Handsome Lou, who can resist?

This post made my day! I LOVE cupcakes, and after my Miss Lucy stole two of my four mini cupcakes the other day, I’ve been dreaming of cupcakes ever since. Here is the answer! (Click on link below to get to today’s bit of paradise!)

Thank you, Lazy Girl!

Choc-Coconut Paleo-Friendly Cupcakes for RSPCA Cupcake Day

inspiration on a damp day

I didn’t feel like cooking lunch today. I didn’t feel much like anything today. No sunshine. No happy. And I have been worrying about finding a new apartment and moving house etc. This morning, just after I was told that my application for an apartment has been approved, and I was about to celebrate, I received a phone call from the agency saying there is still one more person needed to approve my Lucy! Aaargh! The anxiety mounted like a stretto in my head… I hate last minute changes, especially ones like this one!

Well, when I am low on energy for kitchen activity, I look at what others are cooking, a sort of “inspiration search” – and here it is, the inspiration for the day: Lazy Girl Fitness‘ yummy recipe for Baked Mustard Chicken with Coconut Veggies! Continue reading

We need to clear out

These visuals are really fun. I love food, cooking and kitchens. Moving house soon too, so the images are all the more relevant amongst the visual worms in my brain!
