Autism. One more lesson.

The cow was as black as the sky.

The cow was as white as paper.

The cow was as soft as sofas.

The cow was as fluffy as toys.

The cow moos as armadillos. 

Autists have a remarkable ability to put the unexpected together and create images, words and ideas that are fresh and new.


These ideas stimulate us to places we would not find otherwise.

...quiet as a dark sky

shy as a train leaving...

If I could pursue more of this I would, if I could be half as inventive.
