Wish I could see what happens

Thanks to Marbury for this link to a youtube video of a 3 year old reciting a complicated love poem. I can hardly believe it and would love to know what happens in life to the little boy. Let me know what your thoughts are if you can!

And while I am sharing links, the blog of a Returning Scot has been engaging my imagination about rocks. See this post and you will understand why I like to think I have a heart of gold as we live not far from Tyndrum and its – still to remain closed – gold mine.

    My, what a memory that little guy has! I wonder if his ability to recall so well is going to last into adulthood. It could certainly help him in school, but it will depend on whether his ability to conceptualize the content of the memorized material develops.

    I slipped over to the Returning Scot, and read a few posts. What an interesting blog! I’m going to check back on that, for sure! Thanks!

    His joy in reciting this poem is a tribute to his Mum.

    I am not an expert in this at all, but from what I have read and seen of children who are autistic, and of children who are savants, this little boy seems not to have the characteristics of either. He is not detached from the words in the poem and in fact seems to delight in some that he knows. He points to himself when he says the word “I” that seems to me he is totally engaged in the poem…but not lost in it and it alone. When the poem is finished he also seems totally engaged in what’s next and does not sink into himself or begin the poem anew. He is amazing and I thank you so much for posting this. I am going to put it on my Facebook page right now, and if I post it on my blog I will link back to you for showing it to me. Marvelous!

    I do think you have a heart of gold, although I have yet to follow the link. 🙂

    Thanks for the comments, I am still playing it over every now and then because I love the accent. Funny how you wondered about whether he was on the autistic spectrum, Lydia, have to confess I did too, but you are right he seems far too full of life and joy and mischief to be a high achieving loner.
