4:50 Las Vegas time

I figure that I need to write down at least for five minutes every day regardless of my mood or whether I want to bare my soul to you again?? I've been comatose the most of the day going through my various moods of low blood sugar induced by celebratory (?) herb...
I was inspired by this long historymentary of Leonardo, Il Maestro. He fit so much into his 69 years. It makes me want to research about the remarkable genius way ahead of his time. He wanted to fit so much into his life with so many projects it almost makes me want to search creativity and ADD...

I thought that this research might be interesting to anyone curious about loving someone with ADD:)
Structure Does Matter
Too much structure may inhibit creativity in non-ADD young people, this is not normally so in ADD individuals in whom the creative impulses are "built in". To underscore this point let's consider tragic aspects of the career of one of the greatest creative talents in history.
Leonardo da Vinci
Leonardo's difficulty in finishing products and tasks is often brushed over lightly or ignored in current biographies. Leonardo enjoyed a comfortable, indulgent early life as the bastard son of a nobleman. Though well treated, he missed out on the more rigorous formal education and responsibilities that would have gotten had he been a legitimate heir. Leonardo's enormous artistic talent, refined in the workshop of the famous Italian artist, Verrochio, soon provided him with money and employment opportunities with aristocrats and rich merchants in Renaissance Italian society. Unfortunately, despite his staggering natural gifts, Leonardo completed less than two dozen paintings in his lifetime, and few other major products like sculptures, though all that he did was masterly. Many of his now famous sketches, human anatomy studies, engineering designs, and perceptive writings and scientific observations, written in mirror writing in his notebooks, were recovered and became known only hundreds of years after his death. None of his brilliant engineering designs seem to have been built.
Later in life Leonardo got into increasing trouble when he did not complete commissions for which he had been paid. The pioneering psychologist, Sigmund Freud, made a study of Leonardo's early life and quotes his confession while on his deathbed of his regret and anguish over failing to do his duty to God and man in his art (Leonardo da Vinci, A Memory of his Childhood, Routledge, 1999, translation of the German edition of 1910).
The known facts about Leonardo's life show that Leonardo's ADD, lack of training in discipline to sustain his efforts and finish products, combined with easy early successes, help account for the lopsided talent vs. productivity. Most likely, his temptations to continue experimenting rather than address the more boring tasks involved in completing works, were heightened by the richness and power of his imagination.
Can one imagine more powerful evidence for Ned Hallowell's emphasis on the importance of structure for ADDs? ADD talent can realize its full potential only when a person gains mastery over his energies and impulses. This appears to be as true for one of the greatest geniuses in history as for people with more modest gifts.

I wonder about the mind and then wonder about escaping into a game of chess totally hyperfocused...my mind wanders and feel that maybe I could empathize with him and his own behavior but of course not have even close the genius of Davinci!
I see that I can help out this community with chess in so many ways. I came back from the state championships with a happy undefeating team coming in 10th in the state. ...About 5 of the schools best players did'nt show. I'm sure that we could have placed in the top five or been at least the top 3a school with those kids but it worked out because 5 of the most devoted but inexperience players were able to play. 3 of them have learning disabilities with IEPs on them. One has ADHD, but he is funny and played 4th board. The others appear to have varying degrees of add (not learning when to shutup!)

Bottom line was that I felt that we would have a great trip and we did especially after I treated them to large dinners. Our number one players grandfather payed for the hotel at Amerisuites! Our team basically went first class and everything as far as the organization and cost worked out!
..
as usual, when you finally think everything is hunky dory is when everything starts piling up along with Betty Lou changing her mind about volunteering for the trip. Now she wants the money and be paid. There are of course no funds. I wouldn't have splurged at Fudruckers and Golden Coral otherwise.

She goes and complains about the trip even though we had a fantastic time. Why do some folks enjoy tearing you down whenever things are going well??
In these situations I'm happy to see Buffy's wagging tail and eat some food. Maybe if I keep her fed with a TV dinner , she might relax a little bit!
4:20 time in serendipachi!
$600 on the infinity but it was so nice to get the present from Muffy...
it goes a long way,...its the first time in a few days so its nice at first but then you have to fight off the depression
so a banana sure hits the spot for overthinking about the inevitability while realizing in the bath tub that I don't need to spend the time alone but with my lover...
life is too short to not spend it with your lover!

TGIF?? or should I really thank him for another boring lonely Friday.
Muffy is so far away and the only chat room is newsbusters.org...this right wing site...maybe this is how I enjoy myself?? getting a rise out of a party I despise..
Buffy looks up at me and wonders what the hell I'm doing pecking away at this keyboard or to watch a movie "Dr T" about a girlycologist in love with all these women!
I'm kinda depressed and thats when I should just go to bed rather than imbud in herb....I realize that there are too many folks to see but part of me is afraid...I've alway worried about my lack of common sense which sometimes my mind into the paranoid state over worried about what others are thinking!
the chess is over and I'm kind of emotionally letdown but I know that I can still start this project! The first step is at least writing the lesson plan or even getting the giant chess pieces going for the checkerboard courtyard in between the gym and the office. The mural and the chessboard ought to really liven up the school for next year.
Betty lou has put a damper on things and I shouldn't let her hard feelings affect my own mood and self esteem. It was nice of her to take Friday off so I only had to tolerate her for one day!
Spring is in the air but everyone seems to be going to their own cliques....sometimes the worst feeling is just being left out because they don't like my personality...this is the way my mind works when I feel my body just going into this down slump....
everything seems so much better in the am when the sun comes in and Im ready to really greet the day!

  1. I decided to do a search about Davinci and ADHD, I'm still looking but this might be interesting to Muffy!

    Blog: Coping/Succeeding with Attention Deficit Disorder
    Another blog to check out. One thing many ADD/HD blogs seem to have in common is sporadic updates (?)

    Coping/Succeeding with Attention Deficit Disorder: "Pre-requisites
    Accepting that ADD is a GIFT is a natural first step. This is the first and most important requirement. If you consider it a problem that needs to be fixed, you will seek to destroy your true potential, or in the case of your child, limiting him/her.

    You should review available current literature. This includes diagnosis and suggestions for solutions. They are for both reference and assistence. Books such as: 'The Edison Trait,' by Lucy Jo Palladino can be very enlightening, or 'How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci,' by Michael J. Gelb can be very helpful."

    I like Thom Hartmann's views a lot when looking for someone that presents ADHD as species differentiation which was useful to humanity when we were in different environments(the wild) and which is maybe not so useful in some of the environments humans are in today(the traditional classroom). That is not to say we can't make adjustments to allow the strengths of ADHD to be seen again as strengths in ANY environment. Right now I'm reading Complete Guide to ADHD by Hartmann, and already I feel more at peace with my diagnosis. I know I'm not stupid or less capable. I hated that STUPID article you posted about how people with ADD do worse at work tasks. Screw that stupid study. DUH. They may as well do a study on whether girls tend to grow breasts more so than boys during puberty. jesus.
    Claudette, at 14:48
    I had the fortune of travelling with Thom Hartmann a few years ago. I was even luckier to have him as a mentor and was taught ADD Coaching by Thom and Louise, his wife.

    He encouraged me to study, and now I am finishing my second year at university doing a BA with a psychology major, potentially a health promotion major and possibly, if they recognise one of the HP units, a major in journalism. WHOO HOO! Who woulda thought?!

    My life BEGAN when I discovered myself on www.addvance.com . Now I have an email group, that basically runs itself now, called ADDventurous Women. Heading towards 100 members and we have now amalgamated with NZ this year.

    So much has happened the last few years. I am proud of my ADDness, it is part of who I am. I hate hearing the words "suffer from".

    More and more women are coming out of the "ADD closet". Proud, smart, creative, compassionate go-getters!

    Next week the woman taking the chair in 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' in Australia,is a proud ADDult, who very nicely put Eddie (the host) back in his place when he said "life-long suffering".

    In my work, my clients know I am ADHD and don't give a toss ... because I work harder and more creatively that my counterparts. ADD is MY point of difference! If they don't like the label, a badge I wear with pride, then i don;t deal with them.

    Luckily this has only happened once ... by 2 people who were mORE ADHD than me ... I think it scared them!
    Judie, at 00:55
    Wow,

    Cool posts. I'm glad that people are working hard and making it known that ADHD really is something that is more of an Advantage than it is a difficulty.

    Hi, I'm hoe bing the owner of www.theadhdspecialist.com

    I am a neuroscientist and a fellow adhd advantage optimizer ( I believe that people with ADHD have tremendous potential and have been contacted on numerous occasions to speak on the link between nutrition and ADHD.

    I like what claudette said about ADHD being a differentiation. A fellow named Charles Blanc has been discriminated against due to his ADHD. He too has a blog at oldmaison.blogspot.com/

    As for Julie, do you mind contacting me? My email is adhdanswer@theadhdspecialist.com

    I would like to know more about the group and what is possible.

    My website has over 100 pages of information on ADHD that I have gathered and posted up. I am looking for more ways to improve it and would love some feedback.

    Also any articles, inspirational stories to share as well would be a blessing.

    Thank you for taking the time.

    Warmest regards,

    they should really hate Kennedy for being elected 1 times , and glad that he was shot before his 2nd term and his brother who would have a great chance of 2 terms. They hate the Kennedys so much that they will remember his accident even before they were born, but they are sure happy he had the accident!

    a womanCongress having to change the law about how many terms a President could be elected. ???

    Cheney was drunk on cheap Texas 5 point beer, then freed himself of his dillemma asking the secret service to hush up the matter, and rather than go for help like any normal man, he scurried back to the ranch and waited for his 'advisors' to discuss how to save his cowardly political skin. Then they waited 14 hours to for dick to sober up and keep away the good ole boy sherriff and the news from knowing!

    hmmm, funny how history repeats itself...imagine if dick's victim died! How would they cover that up??

    If you don't see the difference, there's nothing anyone can do for you.

    put on some glasses to see reality, neocons!

    Summary: Media reports regarding when the Kenedy County Sheriff's department actually interviewed Vice President Dick Cheney have varied widely and have sometimes conflicted, a fact that the media themselves have largely ignored.
    Media reports concerning when the sheriff's department of Kenedy County, Texas, actually interviewed Vice President Dick Cheney about his accidental shooting of a hunting companion have varied widely, with little attention on the part of the media to the fact that reports have been inconsistent. Moreover, the media have virtually ignored the consequences of what the latest reports indicate was a 14-hour delay in the department's interviewing of Cheney about the incident. As a result, media have, by and large, simply reported without challenge assertions by law enforcement officials about what happened and have not noted how evidence might have been compromised by the delay. For example, media outlets have reported that law enforcement officials say that alcohol was not involved in the incident -- without noting that the officials are presumably relying on the word of Cheney and the others involved and without noting that interviewing the parties immediately after the incident would have presumably produced direct evidence on this question.

    Though most reports now indicate that the sheriff's department chose not to question Cheney until Sunday, February 12, at 8 a.m. ET -- 14 hours after the shooting -- several different accounts have emerged. On February 14, The New York Times reported that Sheriff Ramon Salinas III "said the Secret Service called him shortly after the shooting occurred" and that Salinas sent chief deputy Gilbert San Miguel "to the Armstrong Ranch that night. He said Mr. Sanmiguel interviewed Mr. Cheney and reported that the shooting was an accident."

    But the Times' February 14 report conflicted with other news reports from that day, which indicated that a law enforcement official had been barred from the Armstrong Ranch the night of the shooting. The Washington Post

    Well, he needs an anal assist, to remove his head.

    I don't mind. What the hell do I care?

    Just as long as lying sacks of shit get to keep telling falsehoods unopposed, is just as long as they either remain ignorant, or cause others to become total jackasses.

    I really don't think moronaliar is going to leave this thread not realizing his little shittard loon lefties have been feeding him a line of shit he bought for what, how many months now ?

    Sometimes, in order to remove the immense brainwashing, some less than sissy actions need to be taken.

    You know what, that jchavits got the treatment earlier on his lies, and he straightened up some, and started actually typing in posts that weren't flat out lies.

    Hey, what those loons really want me to do is oppose them without being rude. Well, they'ell have to convince me they aren't up to no good, in order to recieve that treatment.

    I realize his initial statement lie, was all about grinding it in, but the dumb shit blew it, and bought a commonly sold lie, then used it.

    That my friend is far different than an innocent mistake.

    If I get banned for not being nice and goping along with liars, and the liars get to stay because their lies and false attacks somehow appear nice to someone, well then this site will have less than it deserves.

    It's long past time the left gets hammered so hard they won't be capable of telling their lies anymore, because noone will be buying, not even them.

    lol- Yep, I made a few enemies didn't I JAB, and they've both been banned one week each, and it's supposedly my fault. lol

    Come to think of it, that's not why I behave the way I do, as I explained, but then again, some must enjoy that fringe benefit on some level.

    I guess after that, I do see your point a bit more clearly. No need to cheer up the mentally unstable with some sort of retaliatory victory.

    Im sorry that you are so upset with an obvious miscommunication as to notify or interview.

    Cheney could very well have been drunk and wanted to rehearse a little before the interview...

    You feel so strident in your anger towards a person that you never met!

    I hope that you have some good exercise afterward such as bicycling or jogging to help vent some of your anger. You are a prime candidate for some serious cardiovascular constriction.

    I don't think Montana is either of the above, he's on the money and so does the rest of America that's why Cheney's approval ratings are under 20%. He's loathed because everyone see him for what he is, corrupt, secretive, and pulling the strings in one of the most inept administrations in American history.

    Otto, you Jerry idiot...you live in Germany, what a great socialist system you have there, right?

    instead of focusing so much on what YOU consider the USA's problems, why don't you find a way to get rid of your Green Party which has taken Germany to the brink of economic disaster, just like every other socialist party that is in control in European governments.

    I mean, do we need to talk about the fact that the youth in germany are literally fleeing Germany in numbers only seen after WWII and other great eras of econnomic disaster in Germany? and guess where they are fleeing to? THAT IS RIGHT BIATCH! GOOD OLD GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!! so much for the USA being so bad and our economic system being bad, eh? tell that to the millions of people who are despereate to come in and those that have found a much better life here than in any other nation in the world.

    stop worrying so much about the USA, which you hate and worry more about why Germany, once an economic power house is now a laughing stock when it comes to economics....

    and really, who cares about Cheney's or Bush's approval rating, guess WHAT! they are not up for re-election in 2006 OR 2008, but guess who is, most of the Democrats in congress, want to know their approval rating, much less than that of President Bush....

    but once again, worry about your country which is a big, fat joke!

    Otto - Though I commend you on your variation of adjectives ("incompetent" become "inept"), one question for you - beyond being the President of the Senate (and therefore a tiebreaker), what powers does Vice President Cheney have?

    If a generally successful foreign policy and doing what little he could to get the economy out of a recession (presidents really have very little say-so in the economic direction of the country), AND preventing any further terrorist attacks on American soil is your definition of incompetent or inept, I would sure hate to see Bush at the very peak of competency!!!

    you might want to add Machiavellian, cowardly, devious, manipulative, intimidating, alcoholic, vitriolic and a very poor shot for just one beer!

    "and pulling the strings in one of the most inept administrations in American history." Might you conveniently omit the Clinton years of corruption? you need to get your students involved in your conversations to elevate the dicussion by a percentage point or two.

    So, your point is what? Clinton was corrupt, so it's okay that Bush is? Has the GOP argument been reduced to that?

    Damn TC, you are smarter that that, if NB's would let me draw a picture I would, however I can't and if you cannot read the writing in-between the lines or on the level of two grades, it's your lack of "Reading Comprehension Skills" not mine.

    realamerican....Lyons the liar got his info, supposedly from CNN, funny enough he doesn't link it like you did.

    let the moon bat talk out of his behind, the poor fool hates anything that Republican or Conservative.

    he is full of conspiracy theories.....E.T. is constantly calling him to go home with him, but Lyons just doesn't want to leave.

    lol- I think it's the aliens that Bush is building the base on the moon to wage war with, and ML knows he'd die in the alien ship, so he don't dare.


    He put a link up earlier in another thread, and it didn't support what he said. Of course since he's a loon I guess noone looked at his link, a lot just assume he lies anymore.

    Well, I checked it, then pointed out it was BS.

    So this other one, he just plageurized, huh, no credit.

    LOL

    Another lib crime.

    Well, he did make that bizarre statment in the state of the union address about wanting Congress to ban "human animal hybrids", maybe there's alot of science fictional stuff going on that us mere citizens aren't privy to.

    Check out this one, it's alot funnier, it's the original press release from the sherrif's office. It has the line in it, "Mr. Whittington's interview collaborated Vice President Cheney's statement". I'm sure they meant "corroborate".... or..... DID they?

  4. Excellent blog. I'm a fellow traveller on this road of ADDism. Just started my blog hope you have a chance to take a look at it. I'm wondering if I should tell the new employers that I have ADD. Your perspective would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
