Subnote regarding earlier post on synethesia.


I am sitting here watching My Extreem Affliction on tv and the guy who was able to learn Icelandic in less than a week is being featured.  This guy is a super genius in a more functional than rain man kind of way.  However watching tonight, i learned that although being able to recite a 22,000 long number, he can not drive a car.

I posted a blog on synesthesia earlier that you can see here… https://bluepearlgirlsworld.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/the-world-of-synesthesia-quite-an-amazing-phenomenon/

The human mind is so fascinating! Yet, no matter what, we just are not evolved enough to be able to be highly functionable in all areas of thought and behavior.

We all have strengths and weaknesses.  Some are more marketable than others and sometimes more socially acceptable or popular / in fashion.  That doesnt mean that anyone out there has nothing to offer this world.

Find your strengths people.  Find areas that they are utilized in or would be a strength.  That way, you can be yourself doing something that you are good at and comes naturally.  It sure makes life more enjoyable throughout the process and you never have to apologize for being who you are and what you can do.  Remember… not everyone can do that quite so easily!  That is your gift.  Use it to help YOU!

Hello. My actual name is Emelie. I am an artist in San Francisco. I started out my early life deep in the Santa Cruz mountains. I left Santa Cruz shortly after graduating High School in 1992 and moved up to the city. I have been in sf ever since and more specifically Bernal Hts. since 2009. I work in a number of mediums usually depending on the space i have to work in. In SF that can vary greatly! I look forward to sharing my thoughts, observations and photos with you all. Hopefully at the very least i will give you a little chuckle once and a while. Thank you for stopping and reading my little blog. I encourage all who stops by to leave comments. I will read them all and appreciate the time you spend with me! Sincerely to you all! Emelie (aka, Bluepearlgirl) To see some of my artwork, please check out www.artwanted.com/emelie ...........
