If you could have a talent what would it be?

For me I would love to be able to paint pictures. How wonderful it must be to be a artist and see wonderful painting you have done yourself.

Make the Yankees disappear.

Seriously, I would love to house all the homeless people, feed the hungry and learn to play the guitar.

Chippendale Dancer? Does this, talent wish, come with the benefits of Body, Moves, Looks, and Groupies?

I'm with MM. I've always wanted to paint. I can draw, in fact took art courses once, but have never attempted to paint. (except walls, ceilings, trim, and furniture!)
I also play a little guitar, but would like to really learn to play properly.

I'd like to play either a piano or a violin because I think music is the ultimate language, and I think of those instruments as the ultimate vocal cords. Concertos and tone poems to me are far more eloquent than phrases of mere words. But, lacking full use of either hand, there are symphonies inside me that shall never be shared. But, oh the sweet noise they make in my head!

I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!

Punt a football 60 yards. You only come on the field when the other teammates have screwed up and you have 6 months off with all the benefits of being in the NFL.

I do have some artistic talent, I design and bead jewlery...can paint somewhat, which i would love to learn to really do....I also would like to work with glass, as a glass artist. I think that would feed my soul...I would also love to write a mystery novel..Many years ago, I actually did write an outline for one..It was set in Miami during the booming real estate years...There was a boarding house with many eccentric characters, and ended with the killer hurricane, that almost did Miami in.....now thers a book I would read

I'd love to be able to sing extremely well. I'm okay but wouldn't get past the first round of auditions on American Idol.

Cheers,

I would love to be able to fix things or build like Bob Villa. My DH is not very handy, so I would love to be able to jump in and do it myself.

Default Re: If you could have a talent what would it be?

The only genuine talent I have is for playing the piano. I learned many moons ago, at the insistence of my mom, and I've never regretted the lessons she made me take over a 3-year period. I've owned a baby grand for many years, and it's very nice to hear visitors ask for this song or that. Despite my lessons, I play pretty much by ear and can do a fair to middling job on any melody that I've heard more than once. Party invitation, anyone?

I'd always wanted to author a novel or two, just like Trip. The funny thing is, I think that I have the natural ability to do so if I weren't so darned lazy. I write reasonably well, I'm a compulsive reader, and English was my second major in college. But the key to good writing, IMO, is extensive research. And that is where my laziness keeps me from ever being able to answer to the title of "author".

By the way, Trip, the outline of your "Miami story" reminded me somewhat of the Carl Hiassen novel called "Stormy Weather". It's about the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in '92, and all the nefarious characters who show up in South Florida to make a dishonest buck. If you haven't read it, I think that you'd really enjoy it or any of Carl's nine other hilarious tales of life in Florida (including his latest, "Skinny Dip", which is about a lady who's tossed off a cruise ship).

Jack

Jack..funny you should mention Carl Hiassen...I collect mysteries set in Florida, and have quite a collection...Carl is one of my favorites....I think the 1st one I read yrs ago, was Tourist Trap, and he had me hooked...I will be in Florida in May, and one stop will be the Murder on the beach Booskstore, in Delray.....

I've always considered myself talentless. BUT, that doesn't stop my wishes. So,
I wish that I could have all the talents my DH had before he became ill so that I could make for the deficits in our lives. I also wish I had a talent for making money and a talent for writing.

Chris and I have a tradition of listening to Hiassen tapes while traveling. As we drove to and from NOLA, we listened to Skinny Dip this time.

I found it curious that, though The Skink appeared, he was never mentioned by name. I hope he's not being phased out and replaced by Stranahan. That's the second or third book featuring the solitary Squire of Stiltsville. Long live the Skink, Captain!

[Is that Lady Bird Johnson, or John Haldeman?]

As you already intoned, Steve, "Long live the Skink!" There's word around Tallahassee that he may be running for governor again when Jeb's second tour is over. Of course, the chef in the governor's mansion might have a problem satisfying the Skink's odd appetite. <BG>

I'm a former member of the Marine Corps Band, but I've always wanted to play the piano, and sing. As a matter of fact, I'm going to start lessons for exactly that in the very near future. If you can dream it, you can do it.
Happy sailing,
Ken
