Strawberryindigo: The beginning

Out of the Shadows part two.

When I started this blog back in August of last year I had no idea what a rich community of people I would be meeting and getting to know through blogs and communications. I have found myself looking forward to chatting it up with some of my newly found blog buddies. Many of you have shared of yourself. Some of you quite a lot. I have found your stories to be funny and creative, inspiring and insightful, and sometimes quite sad but always hopeful. I have seen myself in some of your words and I have been bettered by them.

I have also been inspired by you all to share something of myself.

What follows is a post I did way back last September. At the time I think I really needed to write it but I wasn’t ready to share with anyone. Soon after I posted, I buried this deep in a sea of bad navigation and a flurry of others. I don’t think anyone saw it.  At the time I was relieved. Now I have reconsidered.

Those who know me by my blog alias; Strawberryindigo, may be surprised by the following post and then again maybe not, but for those who know me by Nancy, the following may explain much……

  1. Welcome to the sunlight, Nancy!!!!! My heart warms reading your story, knowing the courage it took to make those first connections with the thoughts of an Aspergers diagnosis for you and for your daughter, the courage it took to make those first contacts, to take those first steps into the light. Would it help to know that I had the same childhood fantasy/coping device? I knew that I had been stolen by space gypsies and that someday my real parents would find me and take me home to the planet where I belonged. It is lovely to read that you are finding your place to belong, right here and right now. Keep writing your place in this strange old lovely world!!!! (It’s a pretty nice planet, once you get used to it.) Janet


    1. Hi Janet! Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and support. It means a lot to me and people like you Janet, make me appreciate this planet all the more. Thanks for being so nice. 🙂
