Stephen Wiltshire

3岁诊断出有自闭症的英国人Stephen Wiltshire有惊人的能力。只要看一眼,就能记一辈子。

我带沁芝皓皓去看,到了现场看他沉醉在自己的世界,不顾多少人来什么人来,心里有一股激动。

好像有什么海浪在里头翻覆了。

那可能就是一种纯粹纯洁的能量。

我无法不被打动。我告诉沁芝,他能这么过目不忘,因为是用心在看。不是用眼睛。

他说,他生命中最重要的人是自己。

说得真好。

相信自己。

他来画,我去看了三次。次次都震撼。

I came for the third time. To see Stephen Wiltshire draw.
He has been diagnosed with autism at 3 but has the power to draw a city with one look.

Every time I came, he stirred up emotions.
Today as well.
There was a stirring of emotions. I couldn’t take myself away. And after I did, the emotions would surge.

That’s how moving he is.

I looked at the drawing in disbelief.

It’s so beautiful . Is that my city? My country? Where I live in with my loved ones?

He makes me wonder n appreciate n grow to love my city.

That’s how moving it is. The power of the savant.

Is my city that beautiful?
It must be ! How else can it turn out this way?
How did my city appear to Stephen Wiltshire? How does it feel to him? It must be that that THAT beautiful.

Or, he has such beautiful heart. He must have had one. Otherwise, how can Singapore turn out to be so beautiful.

He exposed his heart to us in that drawing.

Something so precious n deep n truthful.

He actually bared it all.
He showed it to us without qualms.

I think that’s the real beauty.

The drawing reflected the truest of him, in him.

He is beyond inspiration. He allows me to take so many things from him in a drawing.

I believe we didn’t have this chance for nothing.

He has this to say: do the best you can, and, never stop.

Thank you for coming Stephen Wiltshire.
