How do I explain it so they understand?
“Okay everyone, road trip.”
Eight students packed in my SUV.
They’re young. They can handle crunching together.
“Look at the mountains. What do you see?”
“Umm, trees.” I hear behind me.
“Try harder,” I say undaunted.
One answers, “muted wheat colors, except for the evergreens.”
“Yes. Muted. Perfect. Calm right? Any other words?”
“Exactly,” I say. “This is just the way a neuro-average person thinks.”
We come up over the hill to the abandoned, graffiti covered diner.
“That ladies and gentlemen is how different my mind works.”
