Quoting from Chris Ciaccia in this May 24, 2019 Fox News article:

ADHD has been associated with a negative stigma, but there are benefits to it, Catani wrote in the study, including creativity, notably exemplified by da Vinci. “Arguably, if positively channeled, some characteristics of ADHD can bear an advantage: mind wandering can fuel creativity and originality; restlessness can move to seeking novelty and action for change,” the researcher wrote.

I think our excitable rescue poodle may have a touch of ADHD. And…. maybe me, too. They did not diagnosis this back when I was in elementary school. But, considering that my first grade teacher lost her mind and moved me and my desk out into the hall and closed the door because I wouldn’t/couldn’t be quiet…. Yeah, probably!

But hey, if Da Vinci had it, it can’t be all bad. Right? 😂

Polite comments are welcome. Thank you for stopping by and God bless.

PS: It’s 103 degrees* Fahrenheit right now where I live. So the snowy picture isn’t a recent one, unfortunately. But that’s our rescue poodle, a fun and feisty ball of energy. We call him Scrappy because he is, in every sense of the word.

We 💘💘 our rescue dogs.

*Correction: shortly after I posted this, our dogs needed out. I went with them, and our thermometer reading was 108 in the shade. Whew!
