“Look at everything as though you are seeing it either for the first time or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory”

Emma latest song shares the story of James Burrows
James is thirteen, and over the years his autism has been responsible for perseverations on shapes, numbers, time, music and maps. The interests come on suddenly, last anywhere from a week to a few years, and get pretty intense. Sometimes the fixations are cool, sometimes mind-boggling, and sometimes just plain irritating. James, who needs help understanding so many things, perfectly comprehends what it means to live in the moment and appreciate. Great music, gorgeous sunny days, bike rides, family, and HIMSELF. Important life lessons. To see the positive, not the negative. And not just to see it, but to revel in it. And be grateful for it.
