Joe & his 'tar.

I rarely post my kids, this is a design blog afterall, but I had to share these pics. This is my son Joe, he is a special little guy. He was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum PPD-NOS which makes for some challenges. We have had great success with the Gluten-free/Casien-free diet... he is speaking again, making eye contact and gives the best hugs that just melt me.

He has always shown a slight interest in music, but when we started going to the Rowley Fleamarket we started to notice his love of instruments. He'd spot them yards away and yell out "tuba" or "tumpet". He would meltdown when he saw a trumpet, flute or guitar because they're usually priced WAY to high for him to even touch. (And "just looking" doesn't comprehend to a kid.) It started to feel cruel just bringing him along. This weekend he had just gotten over a sobfest because he couldn't touch a $160 guitar, when we turn the corner and there was a kid's guitar for $15. We finally gave and bought him it. It was the best money ever spent, I can't take it out of his hands. He brings his "Tar" everywhere...

Maybe you have a Stevie Ray Vaughn on your hands. Nurture the little guy, he might be singing his mama a lullaby before long.
