I, too, come and go and I've found there are many interesting posts to read and things to learn.

Welcome. 8)

As you can see by my signature, I share the same sentiment

Lately, I've personally felt that it has become a "challenge of sorts" in reassessing my roles here on WP.

Most notable, my experiences with High Functioning Autism (HFA) have long felt like being "caught in the middle" - that is that dichotomy of "not being able enough, yet not disabled enough" - a sense of being on the odd-ends of everything, and just about everyone - a sentiment also reflected here on WP.

I sense that the WP community also finds it challenging to express those experiences of stemming from being "caught in the middle."

Enclosed is a LINK to my previous posts. I feel that the responses in this discussion thread will be helpful in reassessing my roles here on WP!

It is cool to see what you come up with! It has been educational. I didn't know a person could use play dough as a mold for example.
Thanks for sharing your talents with us here in WP.

Yes. I had fun with resin casting. I did not put much on this site. I used wood and tin for some items I made. Both materials are available free or cheaply so they are ideal.

I like making things out of found or thrifted materials- kind of a similar concept with the tin and wood. It is a fun and unique creative challenge.

Yes. It is very rewarding.

My tablet battery is about to die on me. I can share a few links via PM if needed but I best do that in the morning when this has recharged.

I know others on here have model railways and also are into other creative hobbies.

I better click "Send as battery is 3%. Was going to reply to the other post but it went back to home screen as I nudged the charging lead...

Is this discussion-thread 'Being Here....' about overall experiences here on WP?

Not originally, no, it was about my happiness at finding WP.

Perhaps a new thread should be started with that topic. I think it is a good idea, and a lot of people would enjoy sharing their experiences.
