I wanted to share this video with you. It presses lots of buttons for me – all good ones.
It is a profile about a very special person – Tim Sharp, a young man with autism who comes from my hometown of Brisbane. He has a wonderful artistic talent and has created the character Laser Beak Man. The film was directed by a friend and produced by the government department I used to work for (yes, occasionally government departments do something valuable and special).
Most importantly though, it shows (and gives me hope for my little guy) that we can all have a meaningful place in the world.
By the way, don’t you think it’s interesting that autistic and artistic and separated by only one letter.
