yes, the bike, the road, the motion...that's his place, he seems to be so at peace there. glad this event is over, maybe his mind can de-percolate, settle into a comfortable space. i played tuba when i was in high school; i would get so anxious before recitals that i would become physicall ill; very unpleasant; and it sounds like charlie really accrued some heavy anxiety. so, him...bike...motion; all is well now, thx for posting this.

Ya know, that's very true of "typical" kids, too. Some crave the spotlight, others prefer to watch, others prefer to be behind the scenes making stuff work for those on the stage. It's been nice to see the kiddos in my kid's class develop those parts of their unique personalities, just like their typical peers do. My kid (of course) is 100% ham, just like his parents :) He didn't want to give up the microphone at his class play this year. The best part is that the whole elementary school came to watch his K-5 self-contained class perform, and all the kids cheered wildly. Very heartwarming!
