Mark's article on his love of Morris dancing (and why he thinks it might be the perfect hobby for autistic people) was definitely a must-read!

"I’m performing at gigs I’d never thought I’d play at. I find being a morris musician wonderful — I stand at the front of the dancers, absorbed in what they’re doing and making the music fit them while my music makes them dance better. Again, I often find myself in a meditation type state. I’m working with them, interacting, but not having to socialise deeply."
