Real world vs. artistic one

If people are left or right brained, artistic or logical, and we only use 10 percent of our mental capacity, mathematically speaking, if you use both hemispheres of the brain one must be at least 20 percent of the brain's intellectual capacity!

It is a daunting task to decide what to be when one has talents in the real world and the artistic.

The artistic is the most prolific form of human expression but the technological and rational approach to life is the most prevelant.

Never give up on your dreams and artisanship as it will always benefit us all. Just a thought.
