Feeding the Left-brain and Right-brain
The belief system from the past, the right brain of the brain focuses on the visual, and processes information in an intuitive and simultaneous ways, looking first at the whole picture then the details. The focus of the left-brain is verbal, processing information in an analytical and sequential way, looking first at the pieces then putting them together to get the whole.
Typically this is what has been associated with right and left-brain characteristics:
Right Brain Inventory: Art, random, free, big picture, music, emotion, imagination, dream ,sur-real, novel, colors, creative, analog, fun
Left Brain Inventory: Logical, verbal, part and detail, digital, symbolic, order, math, rational, objective, linear, target and direction, system, analytic.
There has been much scientific research on the right brain and left-brain debate and the new consensus is that the thinking process involves both sides. The American popular culture of either the left or the right brain might need to really be more open mined to encompass the total brain approach.
For what ever you choose to believe, I’ll probably still consider me a right brain dominant person.
To push my creative side and to continue to learn software skills, I recently attended a workshop taught by Heather Michelle Chinn- aka Heather the Painter http://www.heatherthepainter.com/ . A definite “2 thumbs up” for her instructions and guidance. I so appreciated her teaching style and wealth of information. It was her support and encouragement for me to work up the asparagus in a fun whimsical presentation.
And just because I love asparagus-The official queen of spring!
Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables in existence. It leads nearly all produce items in the wide array of nutrients it supplies in significant amounts for a healthy diet.
Asparagus is the leading supplier among vegetables of folic acid. A 5.3-ounce serving provides 60% of the recommended daily allowance for folacin, which is necessary for blood cell formation, growth, and prevention of liver disease. Folacin has been shown to play a significant role in the prevention of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, that cause paralysis and death in 2,500 babies each year. Its wealth of nutrients, fiber and very low sodium and calorie content make asparagus a nutritionally wise choice for today’s health-conscious consumer.
