Last weekend saw I CAN Network’s first camp of 2019, at the Doxa facility in Western Victoria.
It was the 14th such camp I personally have worked on, yet I still never ceased to be amazed by the remarkable young Autistics I meet on them. Being surrounded by so many brave and unique individuals was truly inspiring, and at our writing workshop, I tried to put into words how important it is to see the spectrum from the right perspective.
This poem was the result.
A shattered mirror stretching as far as the horizon,
A trillion splintered planes,
In stillness, jagged chaos,
In motion, a rolling sea,
The ocean isn’t broken,
It’s not meant to be perfect.
