Or just in-the-middle brained?
I need to know.
It’s really important.
Because if you happen to be left-brained…..I just wanted to be clear at the beginning……that this may not be the project for you.
At least that’s what my left-brained son told me….verbally and non-verbally.
Between the eye rolls and the sighing he made his opinion quite clear.
He was dismayed….maybe even distraught….
…..over my callous disregard for correct navigational placement.
In his opinion it was tragic.
A tragice misuse of available resources that the compass ceiling medallion we installed on the ceiling could not be used to navigate the north star.
You see….I’m a right-brain thinker.
All the way.
So, instead of using the correct geographic coordinates…..
……I lined it up to look symmetrical.
It actually startled me a little.
This left-brain occupation with precise placement.
Was it wrong that my first thought was, “Why?”
The graphic is ready to be stuck to the ceiling and I turned it this way and that way. First straight and then diagonal and then lined up with the clock hands or maybe the chairs or the pennants or the Cape Cod box under the curtains.
It was hard work trying to figure it out. Trying to figure out the most aesthetically pleasing direction for north by northwest.
And then I saw it.
Briefly…..out of the corner of my eye.
My left-brain genius pulled up a compass ap on his I-phone and walked around the upstairs game room trying to determine the precise geographic location for the medallion.
Doesn’t he understand?
Compass ceiling medallions that are actually directionally correct are so 2011.
You see…..my right-brained self was all about the overwhelming creative joy of looking up and seeing…..this.
And when I was thinking of the 2784 reasons why we absolutely, positively needed a compass for the ceiling.
Actually using it….
……never even made the list.
So if you are in our neighborhood looking for the North Star.
Whatever you do…..please don’t use our ceiling compass to help in your search for Ursa Minor.
Instead…..I happen to know this incredible navigational genius who can help.
He’s the one with the innovative I-phone compass ap……
…..and the really great left brain
