This film reveals a lot about living with autism from the perspective of the person with autism. For me what was immediately clear was that there is a total separation between physical ability and "thinking". TRacy refers to this as a paradox.
Tracy's articulation of what it is like to live with autism makes this separation very clear. For example, at one point in india he says of autism, "it is not abnormality of brain, it is abnormality of experience". It is deeply inspiring to see tracy and Larry work as advocates for Autism education. It is also painful to hear living with autism described as "a death grip on our actions" (tracy) and that "sorting through teenage hormonal autism was a nightmare". Very powerful stuff
I agree, I think it was the most revealing (or one of) insights into how people on the spectrum view themselves and it was particularly powerful to see Tracy and Larry fighting to advocate for themselves to prove how important that is to them.
The movie was totally engaging from beginning to end. There was a conversation between Tracy and Larry. They were both sitting on a bench and typing to each other. Tracy wrote that he was enjoying the friendship and fellowship of being together on this once in a lifetime journey. Larry replied "Feasting on my friend's company I store up memories"
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
