    Joel, I am just beginning to learn about ADD & ADHD as I wait (impatiently) for the professionals to follow up with all the necessary assessments for my child. Your description really explains a lot as I struggle to understand why my very smart, loving boy is failing socially and at school. Frustration is served up in a deep dish to everybody including this little man. Ironically the teacher who initiated the assessment is the most unsupportive when he is disruptive, probably because she’s tired. I’m so glad you found a way to embrace what is a natural part of what makes you unique and have the courage to share this with others. My child is too young to express what he’s dealing with – you have helped him already by helping me to understand.

    Joel, this is so beautiful! Both the images and the post. I don’t have ADD or ADHD but one of my sons does, so I have had indirect experience with the frustration incurred. You are such a wonderful inspiration! XOXO

    Hi Joel,

    I came across your work through facebook and since then I am a big fan of yours (i am aware of it, may be u r not). I think u will recognise me as we had few conversation on fb messenger. I dont kno if its true or not but I really feel a connection with u and ur work as I think we both have same turbulence in our mind. On my part, I always failed to potrait it and when I see ur images I feel my minds turbulence getting relaxed. I am a day dreamer and a writer too. I write poems. I love photography too. I always wish to meet u someday and talk to u. I hope to learn from u and be a good friend of yours,

    Thanks
    Abhishek
