Coming back down to Earth, I am continuing to explore Contract Finder to look for public sector contracts at Autism Works as well as working on some fundraising events for my Daisy Chain challenge to summit Kilimanjaro and have also been back to the cinema to see No, a film charting the National Plebiscite in Chile in 1988, asking whether General Augusto Pinochet should stay in power. The main character, Rene Saavedra (played by Gael Garcia Bernal), works on a campaign to encourage his fellow Chileans to vote 'no' to another eight years of Pinochet.
|Outside the box thinking
Where my Daisy Chain challenge is more than just a physical/fitness-related challenge is with the 'outside the box' thinking with the campaigning. The mindfulness practice has helped with this, but I do still occasionally find difficulty in flexible thinking, especially in relation to repetitive phrases and sometimes obsessional thought, usually relating to a fixation or interest. To help with my fundraising campaign, I have organised a quiz night and a charity gig night where local band Sheikh Ya Mojo have a agreed to play a set that includes classics from artists as diverse as Led Zeppelin, the Doors, The Rolling Stones and Ray Charles. These events will take place in April. Stay tuned to Adventures with Autism Works or my Facebook page at http://on.fb.me/NA1RTz to find out how these and other developments unfold.

Hopefully, I can also bring some outside the box thinking to the marketing aspect of Autism Works. Elsewhere, to view Asteroid 2012 DA14, the best chance to spot it from the UK with binoculars or a telescope is around 8.00pm, where it will pass by the constellations of Leo and Taurus, for more detail, see the following link http://bit.ly/ZeyJvK. Happy Asteroid Hunting!
