Being June is moving

I’ve finally done it.  I created my very own Being June site.  It’s been a long time coming, and from now on I’ll be over at

So, dear readers, WordPress tells me there’s a way to take you with me.  On Monday (May 18), I’m gonna flip the virtual switch, so you might get some sort of notification.  Then again, you might not.  Flying blind here.

Have a great weekend.

Like any condition where being aware of it is “cool” there will be the usual Facebook things. For autism for whatever reason the colour of choice is blue. Like cancer awareness, autism awareness is an industry in and of itself.

You can buy blue accessories to show the world how aware you are. Along with any other number of things that really don’t do much for actual autistics at all. The foundation that shall not be named (I have chosen to treat this especially noxious group much like Voldemort is in the Harry Potter universe) will make a very hefty sum of money in April as will many other groups.  The raise money for autism trend is spreading so you can…

Maybe it’s because I’m a writer, but I loved this. We all have skills and talents, but when we use them for the betterment of our world and our fellow man, that’s when we truly shine.
