May you all be happy, well, content, channelling your energies in the right directions and relatively able to handle overstimulation.
May you be able to create the right internal conditions via external ones and daily practices and habits. 🙂
HERE WE GO AGAIN.
Guerilla Aspies is playing the Edinburgh Fringe Festival right now.
It will be the third year of the Guerilla Aspies show, which you can ask me to come perform anywhere (No really. Try me? From your bathroom to the Royal Albert Hall. It can be done).
The Stealth Aspies show is coming this year and will be on both the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017. 1pm at Bar 50 venue.

The second Stealth Aspies show took place upon the 27th July and went well. Well well. Thanks to Jason Why for hosting us and introducing us and everything.
With Sarah Saeed, Alain English, Janine Booth and Hannah Yahya. Oh, and of course… Bar 50, venue 151 at 1pm 11-19th August.
Janine was the one person who suggested to John McDonnell that there be a neurodiversity manifesto for the U.K. Labour party and went on to co author it. Thus establishing the UK as the first on the planet and in history to politically represent our kind to that extent. HERE IT IS and ON FACEBOOK
FIRST STEALTH ASPIES PREVIEW, 29th June 2017.
What else have I been up to?
I spoke at the Shy Radicals book launch at the DIY Cultures event, May 2017.
Hamja Ahsan, author of Shy Radicals, The anti systemic politics of the militant introvert, invited four of us to talk at the DIY Culture event in Bethnal Green, sunday the 14th May 2017. Film was made of my explaining the history and concept of the Guerilla Aspies book and show, which stands both as an explanation and a reporting in, 3 years into it all. The film is to be seen here.
I played the first ever UK Autism Arts Festival. We were able to see all the shows currently in existence in the UK, 29th – 30th April. Canterbury University Campus.

For some really wonderfully well written experiences of being autistic,
this is one of many people doing a great job of it.
This fine young man has done very well too? Great films and writing.
