Walking Circles

We went for a walk on Sunday. We did not get too far. The picture explains why.

Today we had a meeting at the Regional Centre where we were discussing Sebastian's transition from IBI (Intensive Behavioural Intervention) therapy to the public school system. Well-meaning, civilized ladies. Educated, responsible, loving mothers and wives, doing there jobs responsibly and with as much efficiency and grace as they can. Lending their abilities to make the system work. Helping things to be done the way they are to be done because THE SYSTEM dictates so. So they make the phone calls, schedule the meetings, write the reports, sign the discharge papers, wait for retirement to come. They sleep well. It is not up to them to think about where the train is going; they are happy enough to help it run.
