Right Brain vs Left Brain

This past weekend Lacombe has been a very busy place!!!

For Left brain people (those who prefer facts, math and analytical/sequential thinking) Lacombe Trade Show was at the Gary Moe Sportsplex. 

For the Right Brain people (those who prefer music, arts, intuition, imaginative and creative thinking) the Encore Art Sale and Celebration was on at the Lacombe Memorial Centre. 

Those who are more balanced - probably took in both. 

Have you noticed the communities people gravitate to, travel to visit, or are held up as model communities seem to have a balance of both. 

People who live in Lacombe, and the area, are really lucky. I am not sure many people recognize just how lucky we are until we lose something - like the closing of The Main Gallery at the end of this week. This is going to have a huge impact for all levels of our community. 

We are a tourist destination for many people - the community of  Lacombe has developed sites like the Blacksmith Shop, the Michener House Museum, Cowpatti Theatre, Music in the Park, Ellis Bird Farm and the Murals. 

Lacombe offers the creative services and products people crave. We have 3 antique stores in Lacombe - that I know of - people come from all over to stroke and appreciate beautiful items people have created.

Art is one of the few constants since the beginning of time. It is the first thing terrorists destroy - therefore it must be important  (and threatening). We create during military outbreaks - think of  the poem "In Flanders Field", war photos and Michelangelo. 
All around our world - ancient cultures created art, music - intuitively recognizing a need for beauty. 

Peru's heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. This week's 75% Off Sale pays tribute to the animals bred for generations in the Peruvian highlands. Without this history and tradition, we would not have this beautiful yarn.

Note: The Crafty Lady has noticed that the sale corner is looking depleted and is adding to it as you are reading this . . . 

Written by Anne, happy TCL employee who is probably a slightly off kilter thinker. Does this mean I am balanced?
