A Survey and Some New Pictures

A survey for autistic people and some photographs, some of which feature flooding in The Walks.

INTRODUCTION

The pictures that feature in this post were taken earlier today, and I saw the survey while editing them.Β 

THE SURVEY

The survey is a facebook surveyΒ intended for autistic people being conducted by Emma Dalmayne and asks one question: do you prefer person first or identity first? At the momnet the poll is running at 86% for Autistic Person and 14% for Person with Autism, and the fact that the latter percentage is even that high has led some people to suspect that some of those who have answered so far are not autistic (for example none of the authors of the many excellent blogs by autistic people that I follow have ever expressed a preference for ‘Person with Autism’. I urge those of my readers who are autistic and on facebook to take part in this survey by following the link – and if you are not autistic kindly do not take the survey.

THE PICTURES

Although nothing like as dramatic as the stuff that John Jonasson has recently been displaying on fotobloggarna.se about floods in his area, there has been some small scale flooding in The Walks, and some of the pictures show that.

My first clue about the flooding in The Walks.

Willows in the water
The willows here are normally close to the edge of the river – not in it.

Swimming gull
This gull is swimming over what is normally part of a field.

Mini waterfall
Here overspill water was running over the path so fast that it formed a mini waterfall cascading down over the side of the path.

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
