Questions from the LYNX Project

(Note from Pablo’s mom) The LYNX Project takes the words of neurodiverse writers and puts them to music. Pablo was honored to be chosen to participate this year.

If you would like to see the concert, it is available below. The whole concert is amazing, but if you want to skip to Pablo’s songs, they are at 51:00 and his interview is at 1:18:06.

After the concert, there were questions for the writers. Here are the questions that Pablo answered:

• Pablo, do you have advice on how to help others have a happy mind?
Always understand that we can choose happy thoughts. We are thinking beings. We understand that we will want things and there are things we have to accept we can’t have. Happy thoughts do not come from a perfect life. Feelings of happiness are available during feelings of pain. Feel that we all have things that make us happy. Find time to enjoy those things. Always the things that maybe feel happy-autistic are too weird to lots of the world. Won’t stop because they feel happy to me.

• What was it like hearing your words in a song for the first time?
Happy to say that the singers were too wonderful. They felt the feelings that I tried to face in my writing. They acted too loving to walk in my shoes. People think I feel nothing. The truth is that I perceive the feelings that the people around me feel and it is too much.

• Where can we read more of your work?
I have my blog and I’m part of a non-speaking book club that makes a blog (speakingisoverrated.blogspot.com)

• Pablo, tienes algún consejo en cómo ayudar a los demás a tener una mente alegre?
Entiendan siempre que nosotros mismos podemos elegir pensamientos alegres. Somos seres pensantes. Nosotros entendemos que vamos a querer ciertas cosas y que también hay cosas que tenemos que aceptar no podemos tener.
Los pensamientos felices no provienen de una vida perfecta. Los sentimientos de felicidad están disponibles mediante sentimientos de dolor. Siento que todos nosotros tenemos cosas que nos hacen felices. Encuentren tiempo para disfrutar de estas cosas. Las cosas que nos haces felices a los autístas parecen ser muy raras para gran parte del mundo.

• Yo no me detendré porque aquellas cosas me hacen sentir feliz.
Como se sintió escuchar tus palabras en una canción por primera vez?
Estoy feliz de decir que los cantantes fueron demasiado maravillosos. Ellos sintieron los sentimientos que he tratado de confrontar en mi escritura. Los cantantes se dirigieron con mucho amor para estar en mis zapatos.
La gente cree que yo no siente nada. La verdad es que puedo percibir sentimientos que la gente alrededor mío sienten y es demasiado.

• Donde podemos leer más de tu trabajo?
Tengo mi blog y también soy parte de un club de lectores sin hablar ( non- speaking book club) que tiene su blog ( speakingisoverrated.blogspot.com)
