Wrap your head around this, if you can.

To say that the email I received recently from my daughter-in-law’s father, a retired eye surgeon, was interesting or intriguing or impressive is woefully inadequate.

Stephen Wiltshire is mind-boggling, truly unbelievable, nothing short of phenomenal.

He also is autistic.

Words fail me.

See for yourself (5:22).

Did you see the segment on 60 Minutes about people who can remember every event of everyday of their lives?

Theanne (and Baron), I struggled to understand what you meant by "two talents" but I think I finally got it. I don't know, though, whether the ability to remember every detail at a single glance should be called a talent if it is due to autism.

Snowbrush, I did see that segment on 60 minutes and was surprised to learn that actress Marilou Henner (of Taxi fame) was one of them.

Emma, it certainly is!
