Soleil au ventre
Paul says strange things to himself, often and especially today, because it is a special day. He is starting
his first year of school in 4th grade and has changed schools. Like everything new, this event paralyzes and
fascinates him. It’s like being born again, he says. Most children are born once and for all when they come
out of their mother’s womb, that’s understood. This one is different. He feels that it will take time or several
tries to really be born, because Paul is so different from other children. He only hopes that this will not be
seen too quickly, but he knows that this is futile, because Paul is not only Paul.
He is Paul, the child suffering from a handicap that is called with a very curious name, Asperger’s syndrome,
a form of autism...
