Today Mission of Complex turns three years old, almost as old as Nate was when he was diagnosed. Like little Nate, we’ve been uncommunicative lately, but it is a special day and that can’t go unnoticed.
Nate has been doing fine. We are in that limbo world I’ve dreaded – post-school, no structure. Still, with the mentoring of a good friend, Nate worked on a home rehab project, which he loved. It was a dream come true for him – spackling, pulling up floors, screwing in socket covers. Maybe in the right situation he can work for a construction crew. He’d love that. We’re also looking for a part-time job for Nate, 20 hours per week in a job that caters to his skills – design, computer skills, etc. That may be an upward climb.
And, of course, there’s his art. At the Smithy Center for the Arts in Cooperstown, Nate has a strip mall art show from August 12 – September 15. The whole third floor will be his for Obsessive Construction. He even sold a piece off our wall a few weeks ago. And Alpha Folks is moving ahead slowly
So all is good here. I miss the blog and will return to it once my book is done. Until then, be well.
