Art is My Religion

My Brain Elastic

By Michele Spector

I cram too much knowledge,

This brain’s overcrowded,

With facts, figures and such.

I yearn for some relief,

From these left-brained notions,

Entertaining my muse,

With three dimensions of,

Line, color, even form.

When I mistakenly believe my creative world has dried up after too much study, or Life Interruptis, it calls to me from the very depths. As I burn out, and become incommunicado, I look for a route out of this overwhelmed state. Then I have the insatiable desire to eat color with my eyes and disappear into a non-linear place. It doesn’t let up till I grab some pastels and paper, and dive right in. To my relief I rediscover that this world where I reconnect, not only reforms me into a functional human being, but has actually waited quite patiently for my return .


  1. entertain that muse….balance that brain and find you are a whole person….writing is a blessing to a left brained person…it becomes their guardian angel….blessings…and thank you for you wonderful comments…bkm

  5. Eloquently put Michele. You appear to be nicely in balance. It’s a pity this neurotic dualism still persists in our race. I’m ever waiting for someone to come up with a unifying pill 🙂

    • Yes, we are forced to live in two worlds. We have almost lost our instinctual nature. Thanks for commenting.
