    Adhd

    From Wikipedia:

    Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or AD/HD or ADD)
    is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder. It is primarily characterized by "the co-existence of attentional problems and hyperactivity, with each behavior occurring infrequently alone" and symptoms starting before seven years of age.

    ADHD is the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children, affecting about 3% to 5% of children globally and diagnosed in about 2% to 16% of school aged children. It is a chronic disorder with 30% to 50% of those individuals diagnosed in childhood continuing to have symptoms into adulthood. Adolescents and adults with ADHD tend to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for some or all of their impairments. 4.7 percent of American adults are estimated to live with ADHD.

    Oh damn, I forgot what I was going to say. Love it Al.
    (You know how I feel about this condition and what the causes are from and also cures-I don't want to start an upset with our wonderful forum)

    Al this is a complex and difficult subject. But it is my opinion that this beautiful image shows all the lack of synchronization that can occur in this clinical condition. Nicely done.

    Sandra -- Personally, I fall all over the spectrum depending on time of day, what I ate, lack of sleep, etc., etc....

    hinket/AT-TA -- thanks for your kind words

    Oriane -- I was trying to create a sense of the condition by making an image where the eye couldn't decide where to look and moves from the white spots (which are located in a classic compositional focal point), the blue line (which has a vibrational excitement because it is surrounded by a yellow-orange compliment), and the bright red stripe, (red is the most eye catching and exciting of all the colors).

    And I just thought you were too scattered to make a coherent composition! By the way, I'm in the club. I could tell you about coping mechanisms! It's part of why I am accomplished in so many areas of music, science and art (As you are - And I'm sure others on this forum)
