I’m speed blogging this morning because I need to be in the recording studio in a little while where I will be at Barb’s mercy. For those of you new to this blog, read Friday’s post ‘here‘. For those of you who cannot cope with clicking on a link – I’m recording the audio book version of Barb’s fabulous book I might be you which she wrote with Lois Prislovsky. Barb is non-speaking and writes with a sharp-witted, take no prisoners eloquence. She is brutally honest in her description of her life as someone who is often mistaken as someone she is not. For anyone who has ever felt they are on the fringes of society, felt they didn’t “fit in”, judged, seen as an “outsider”, as “other”, as less than, this book will resonate. For anyone who has ever felt insecure, shunned, rejected, judged, criticized, and/or misunderstood, this book is for you. I might be you is about how we are more alike than not.
I don’t know that I’ve ever been so excited to go into work!
More to follow…
Breathe Ariane. You’ll do great. Be sure to pass the message on to Barb that she changed my outlook on autism; and ultimately my daughter. She is amazing. Relish every moment spent with her. I know I would!!
Thank you, I will tell her!
Good luck and enjoy – you’ll be great! btw… ordered the book and can’t wait to read it 😉
It’s a terrific book! So glad you’ve ordered it.
Doc and I send all our love and support to you, Ariane! How wonderful! You’ll do great! We’re in the recording studio, too, right now, and a whirlwind of performances, so off we go, with you and Emma in our hearts. Hope to catch up with you soon! ❤❤❤
Oh thank you Chou Chou. Who knew recording could be such fun?!
Soak it in…
Wish I could be there in the recording studio too! But together with Chou Chou Scantlin and all the others who comment here, I am with you in Spirit. BTW I’ve ordered the book on Kindle, but will an audio version be coming out on a CD? I’d love to have that as well.
I believe the audio book with be available as a downloadable file, not sure about a CD, I will ask. 💛
Hooray! So happy and such a worthy cause.
Her book is powerful and intense and very funny.
