Day 19 - a talent of yours

Day 19 - a talent of yours.

I have no discernible talent.

I guess that is not entirely true. I like to draw and paint, as you know. And craft little things. I like to make up stories. I very much enjoy playing guitar, and I used to be a fairly decent gymnast and cyclist. But what I like to do and inherent talent are two entirely different animals.

When I think about "talent,"I can only think of the word "super power." What is my superpower? I do have super smell. I can smell a moldy anything from across the house. And definitely puke or poop, depending on the child. I guess I can't quite list supersmelling on my resume. I am a smart ass. That is a natural ability.


  1. I'd like to add "community building" to your list of talents. You are doing such a wonderful job at still life 365.

  2. ...and a talent for knowing exactly how to make me laugh when things are in the crapper.

    Since I can answer this one without hijacking too much of your space, I will. I always said that Alan has talents (which I think of as being in the arts) and I have gifts. But my gift is for languages- give me enough time and a single hint, and I can more or less crack 'em, which makes traveling to places like Greece and Iceland a total delight because I am jut high on new vocabulary the whole time. So I guess we have to add geekdom to my gifts.

  3. I think you have a lot of talents! I've always wanted to be able to draw, but I haven't learned how yet. So I live vicariously through you.

  4. my dear, you have the ability to draw people in...to engage them and leave them waiting for more: whether it's art, your writing, your company, etc. I agree with Hope's Mama - community building is definitely on your list of talents.

  5. Eh? No discernible talent?! You have bunches of talents and I'll even credit you with super smell if you want it!
