  • I very much appreciate a lot of art (and other types don't do anything for me), but I can't draw a thing. I'm very verbal, not visual - just the way my mind is wired.
  • I like to create things with fabric, paint, beads etc. and I love to see other people's artistic creations of all kinds. How about you?
  • I have an artist's eye more than an artists talent; but, I do consider myself to have an artistic touch. I like to sculpt and I had my own display in our school art show.
  • For most of my life I have been 'artist.' At five I started playing piano (later to be trained). Earlier than that I ALWAYS danced. By ten I was in theater ... later to have a very successful career not only in most all the performing arts, but also as consultant to world-class Peak Performers, not limited to 'just' the performing arts. I have had an incredibly full life in many of the Arts, some of which are still practiced professionally to this day. Although after all these 62 years of being obviously right-brained, for me truth is, after marrying beloved 25 years ago, I have come to not only appreciate left-brained individuals-- 'he' is science and MENSA brilliant [MEOW!!] -- I have come to view my own left-brain-ness with humble respect. Truth is, I actually now view each of these 'sides' within the potentials of our human brain, not as mutually exclusive but as completely complimentary, if not in complete harmony with each other. These personal proclivities nee 'talents' arise from an intellectual/emotional reality within, made possible as different 'sides' of ourselves co-exist as expressions made situationally by the given circumstances presented to each of us along the way. (Along with abstract thought, we are in the position of choosing which side from which to function!) Experientially, I now view science as a literal art form and all things art as science-based. While it may appear these are potentially different functions and/or talents of focus, with their individual influences upon it, they are one in the same: both require curiosity and an insatiable need for knowledge and growth; both require imagination and 'thinking outside the box;' both require not only a certain quality of intellectual and emotional attachment to an industrious responsibility of effort and potential successful outcome, but also require a quality of intellectual and emotional distancing. Each 'needs' a sense of mission, quest and discovery. Each requires a true sense of purpose and even cause. And, in its process, a sense of individual placement within it. In these, 'competition' -- as taken within a 'the free market' point of view -- determines which element of effort turns out successfully, 'purchased' by others for its enhancement and/or enjoyment, those that in some meaningful way benefit others. It is my view that all elements in Nature and all species, including human beings -- whether an 'uneducated' native to a quantum physicist working for NASA -- has a certain 'science' and 'art' to offer the rest of us! This is art and science in union, married in a way: each complimenting the other, hopefully, for the benefit of all. Best of all, that quintessential quality called 'human intuition' (a hunch for some) does not separate art, science nor the need for education: it is the wellspring of a sensed cognitive thought, which in of itself leads to purposeful effort, cooperation at its highest levels and the survival of a meaningful life shared with others.
