Author: SBSK Young Man w/Schizophrenia & Autism Interview

Schizophrenia is an illness I’ve always had interest in studying and deep sympathy for those who have it. My main character in my book, Memory Bound, has it as well.

Special Books Special Kids (SBSK) just posted this video and I wanted to share it. Let’s all try to support, care for and understand each other a little more in 2020.

Thanks for watching.

Blogmas Day 23: “The 12 Pains of Christmas”🎶

Oh, humor. What would we do without you?

The Peregrine household will be listening to this song while we wrap presents tonight. I’m a terrible wrapper, while the saint could wrap a melting igloo perfectly. Enjoy!

Exercise Challenges

Author: October Cycling Challenge– YouTube Cartoonist (Day 15/31)🚴‍♀️

Feeling a bit stuffy headed today so I did 37 minutes while watching YouTube. There are a series of videos  from BuzzFeed I love–Cartoonists vs. Animators. Kevin and Jackie are my favorites, but they all seem like really nice, fun people. I included one of the videos below. Check it out!

Join us tomorrow for Day 16. Vroom, Vroom!

Author: SBSK Video Share (Erica’s Inspirational Story)

The longer I live, the more appreciative I am of the Encouragers. Encouragers are the ones who give off genuine light, positivity and leave judgment at the door.

Erica’s story and words of encouragement are below. Around the 7:44 marker, I feel like these words could apply to writing a novel, as she explains how she felt after completing  a marathon.

Keep going, Arcians. Stay the course.

Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Author: “Away with You, Mortal” (YT Humor Share)

I’ve been dealing with a particular breed of salespeople lately–Class D: Door to Door Solicitors. In America, they waltz right up to your door, knock loudly and ring doorbells. Their actions promptly wake up sleeping babies as they ignore posted warning signs and they release the hounds of doom to begin barking. They sell everything from politics, religion (I say this as a Christian) to tree cutting services. I understand people need to work, and we treat them with decency and polite firmness, but I don’t find this practice a good business model or even very polite.

The Saint and I recently bought two new No Solicitors signs from Etsy, as our old sign broke. We are putting these up in hopes to deter stealthy agents of capitalism. I’m also considering a moat with alligators and some zombie signs.

One day, though, I may just enact the following plan, as enacted in the beautiful video below. Who’s with me?

 

Ponderings

Indie Author: Disability Advocacy Petition (YouTube, SBSK)

So it’s been a rough week. I start to eat a late dinner and I come across the below. YouTube has disabled comments indiscriminately for some channels, including Special Books, Special Kids. The video is raw and emotional and explains the importance of these videos, and the comments from around the world, that show disabled adults and children they are loved, accepted and wanted.

Please consider signing the petition and/or sharing the video. Together I hope we can get the comments back and shout out some more love and acceptance. Thank you.

Thoughts & Reviews

Indie Author: SMA & Spiranza Share (Disability Advocacy)

Shane and Hannah are an inter-abled couple I recently started following on YouTube. Disability advocacy, acceptance and whatever other terms apply are very important to me and are themes that tend to pop up in my writing, even if just a little. Shane is receiving shots for his condition (Spinal Muscular Atrophy, or SMA) from a drug called Spiranza. 

They’re asking people to share the video to increase access to the drug and to also share the benefits it’s done for Shane.

So here we are. Enjoy, Arcians. Keep moving forward. ☺️
