Hi, my name is Jellybean Reds, and I create little creatures. The little creature I would like to introduce you to today is special to me because I created her for Tessla—the Keeper of the Portal.
You see, Tessla is on the Spectrum. This means, besides being quite a colorful character, she experiences the world as a loud and noisy place. Everyday is an IMAX feature, an assault of the senses, a never ending wave of stimuli.
Don’t feel sorry for her. That’s not what she wants. What she wants, is for you to take that extra step to include her (and others like her) in your life.
Being on the Spectrum can be a lonely place. People sense you’re different, and sometimes it just doesn’t seem that cool to hang with you. You’re the underdog, the last chosen, the excluded. Fun things don’t seem like they go with you.
But, people on the Spectrum are fun. And they do like to go out sometimes, though you will never confuse them with a social butterfly.
So next time you’re going out, or having a shindig or just hanging out, think about that special Spectrum dweller who you might like to get to know a little bit better. You’ll be glad you did.
