Jonathan, now aged ten.

Jonathan Bryan was born severely handicapped.

For the first seven years of his life, he could communicate with his family only by winking his eyes, a smile or an occasional arm movement.


His mother has helped him to communicate through a spelling board.

Jonathan has started a blog called EYE CAN TALK | a silent soul emerging

He has entered a short story to a BBC competition.

He writes poems.


He has an autobiography.

Life Adventures of Awesome Jonathan – An Autobiography

He is one of the top pupils in his class for maths.

He is 'the class joker'.

Jonathan, now aged ten.

He tells the Daily Mail: "I'm going back to Jesus's garden soon."

He has had several life-threatening episodes.

He has described a near-death experience in which he "visited Jesus's garden".

In Jesus's garden he could run fast, talk and climb trees

He said he didn't meet Jesus but is very much looking forward to doing that when he goes back.

He looks happy, but the super rich, very beautiful, top actor, gets the best chicks, Johnny Depp suffers from recurring severe depressions and has drink problems. The same with the late Heath Ledger.

The Buddha talks about non striving, but we strive for more pleasure and happiness, we often drive happiness away. We have to accept the bad days without struggling, and when we do the good days will come more often. Peace comes when relax more.

Another example: if we love someone too much and try to cling to them, we then become far less attractive to them and we can drive them away. If we hold a flower too harshly, we might destroy it.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a new type of behaviour therapy, is all about learning to accept things as they are, then the distress diminishes a bit, and often it goes away in the end. It is also used for pain management to help people get off pain killers.

I like you post these occasional out of sphere stories. That throw me. Spotlights my mood. Do I want to read this and why? Part of me doesn't. Not immediately. Dreary and weary in trying to battle, find ways to better... And now this, blinking, smiling one? This little lad, as I say… throws me. And comment? Talk of “inspiration and missing perspectives, considering etc”. But this'll take facing m'grump. Hardly motivated. Or honest. Now feel a miserable git, because.

His blog has hardly a comment (two recently/thus far). I'm relieved in some ways, it's not choc-a with a certain sentimental gush and yet wonder – does his story throw others? Should I comment there? Or here? But perhaps that's what 'Jonathan' says to me; who cares what others think? I can and will. Me communicating – what a miracle. How grateful/should be? And all the – 'what' could stop him? Reading his blog and the v.few yet lovely comments, I might write a line to say 'thanks mate/keep this up'. Tread gently/so much respect. Somewhat intimidated by him. Probably bounce back one of the lines, from one of his poems.

On more familiar territory – and maybe this obviously/intended – Jonathan and blog are as anti-NWO as it – Aangirfan – gets. The defiance. The – I will speak out against the odds. Life is more love than hate, humanity hope not despair and on… And what would happen, if all deprived little ones and those with disabilities had Jonathan's loving family, with sufficient material wealth do? Show us all, relatively able, what value really is.

Bambling comment but like Jonathan: Can, so will.
