Someone tagged me in this photo. Two or three posted this on my wall. Someone sent it via facebook message. And someone else emailed it to me.
There captions were all pretty much the same: "WOW!" "OMG!" or "AMAZING!"
I know why they sent it. It's sweet, they are thinking of me. Of us.
And while I really really really do appreciate the thought, I kind of want to say two things:
- The Stephen Wiltshire story came out in 2009 (maybe earlier). I've seen it.
- The Boy is not autistic like Stephen.

|Norrin's "House" 2011|
So thank you to all who shared Stephen's art with me but The Boy's autism is not like Stephen's.
