insane in the brain

so, after a few days of struggling for blog post inspiration, i broke down and asked the master (ra) for some ideas.  she linked me to a list of ideas.

i was struck with a wacky idea, i would try to draw my way through the list.  i don’t mean great works of art, i mean quick sketches, to get the creative juices flowing.

this is prompt # 67: Consider “intelligence”. What does it mean to you? How has it been defined in your life?

i tend to struggle with self love, and i am quick to criticize my appearance, my skills at adulting, what i did and did not get accomplished each day.  but the one thing i have always felt secure in, is my intelligence.  next to creativity, i would consider it my biggest asset.  i don’t think intelligence can be found in books, or the best schools.  i am pretty sure it is something we are all born with, but we choose to nurture it, or not.  for me it would be a person’s ability to think.  to observe, to collect data and experience, and to synthesize it all.  nothing is more impressive than an agile mind.  and a hungry mind.  curious and quick to learn, cogs turning all the time.

  3. The timing of this is amazing for me, as one of the last things I heard was a car ad describing a car as “intelligent.” That made me itchy, for reasons I couldn’t then articulate beyond staring at the radio and saying, “The car?!” Today’s cars can demonstrate none of the reasonable attributes you’ve linked with intelligence … leaving me once again determined to listen to as few ads as possible, and preserve my brain cells for more reasonable endeavors.
