Does being 'Artsy' give one an excuse to be 'Ditsy'??  

Monday, September 29, 2008

I realized this morning that I really have become a nitwit! I can't remember anything, can't find anything, and sometimes, I can't remember how to do things! It's a shocking reality for me these days but it caused a rampant discussion in my weak mind that requires more than me to solve, hence the question;
If you're creative, crafty, artistic, or otherwise gratefully endowed, does it mean that you will lose the more intelligent(for lack of a better word) parts of your brain?

I know that being left-handed can affect one's creative abilities, but what controls that side? If it's the right, then does the left side of the brain lose a bit of function?

I found a great diagram on this website and after looking it over I can only say that creating has cost me my frontal lobe!!?!?? Really!lol Just about everything affected on that diagram is what I'm experiencing =< But, was it art that did it? I don't know... but then there's the "motherhood syndrome" which could even easier explain this loss - darn kids!lol

I have to say that I believe, in my case, that art and creating did NOT do this - I think if it were responsible, then I would have more talent!! After all, doesn't one body part grow in capabilities if the other is found deficient? {{{sigh}}}

I was hoping for a more logical explanation - especially before I go into senility entirely!!!

What do you think? Am I the only one thusly afflicted??

Thanks for "stopping by the shop!"

    Yes! It does! At least that's a good excuse. I was blaming it on getting older, but I like this better.
    I can't remember anything, even how to spell! :)
    I love your work! My dad used to carve, and that's where I get my creativity from. I never carved, but I've tried just about everything else. Now jewelry seems to be what I like the most!

    Thank you! I guess when you're doing what you love, it comes out in what you produce =D

    well that explains it then -- this is y i have no brain left.
    i used to tell my kids that they sucked all my brains out of my head when they were nursing -- because now they r so much smarter than i am ....
    but maybe i can chalk some of it up to creativity!! idk about anyone else but my apt. is creatively a mess!! lol
