What;'s your talent?

I am extremely jealous of talented people. Both of my children are talented artists, I can't draw a stick man. My nephew can pick up just about any instrument and play it (the lilshit!!). I can't carry a tune in a bucket, can't sing at all... well unless it's off key, that I can do.

My talent, my only talent is baking. I can take an ordinary cake mix and make it into something special. Cookies that I bake are wonderful! My kids aren't home, so I don't do a lot of baking anymore. Sometimes I take something to work, but it seems if I do, I jinx us and we don't have a chance to eat anything.

I know some of you guys are very talented writers. I read all the time. I love sensual writers. I don't mean sexual, although I do enjoy that as well. What I mean is that I can use all of my senses while reading the book. I can smell the food cooking, feel the touch as the man carresses her face, see how blue the sky is that day etc, etc. I find a lot of those writers here.

Some of you write beautiful songs, some are lyricists and some of you are composers. I've seen some of the songs that have been posted here and there here and I must say that I have been impressed with your talent. I'll include the poets in this category.

Still, others work with their hands. They make things. Furniture, homes, I dunno, birdhouses.

There are some amazing people on here. Baking is a talent, some careers are based entirely on baking alone. I cant make brownies out of box of brownie mix.

Yes, saintlianna, but you can write well. I've seen your blog enough to know that. I will have to agree with you, there are amazing people, you should know, you're one of them. : ) Mac

You have talents, too. Your writing is good. It must be, it got ME to keep coming back to your blog!

A woman who can bake, that is a good thing. A woman who can give a BJ as well as you can write about it, now that is an AWESOME thing.

You have a talent for reading people. You listen, you notice things. You learn what makes them tick, then you craft amazing stories that move them, make them think, make them feel.

As for artistic talent, yes, some people are just so good they are off the scale. But I'm finding that it doesn't take too much effort to start to get better at some things. Take sketching and drawing, for example. I started a self-paced, self-directed "home study" course a couple months ago. After just a little bit of practice, and an intention to enjoy the process without caring about the end result, I'm realizing that I'm almost not half-bad. Sometimes I doodle while I'm at a restaurant or bar by myself. You would be surprised (I know I am) by how frequently people will say "Wow. Cool drawing."

Don't be jealous of people with talent. Appreciate them for sharing it when they do. Then, just be yourself. That is the greatest talent anyone ever has.

I am an artist I took commercial art for awhile I was tops in my class. I like to do things with my hands and mouth most women say I am very good with my mouth and hands, they say I seem to know just what to do with them at the right time, if you call that talent.
