Today , I nipped into Twitter. Haven’t been there in a while, so I thought I’d see what’s going on in the world around me.
And I got my heart broken into a thousand pieces.

And then I read all the comments that followed it, because I couldn’t believe my eyes.

The slang for it is ‘gooning’ –
There are some things going on in the world which leave me stunned.
Excuse me, I have to go and hold my precious autistic son close to my broken heart, breathe in his beautiful gentle energy, and pray that those poor traumatised people – wherever they may be – will find peace and healing.
