Definition of ‘talent:’ natural aptitude or skill; unusual natural ability, a marked innate ability, as for artistic accomplishment, natural endowment or ability of a superior quality.
Shelie’s personal inventory regarding this definition of talent:
1. Artistic: can you paint, draw, carve or sculpt?
a) Can you use any marking instrument at all?
Well, yes, I can use a pen and pencil to write alpha and numeric symbols. I think this does not fall into the ‘talent’ definition.
2. Music: can you sing, whistle, dance, and/or play any instrument so that the song can be identified?
a) Are you familiar with music at all?
Yes, married a man who sings, writes music, and plays guitar so well that a producer from Motown offered to produce an
album for him. (Clearly, many years ago. . . but I must count this in my resume or I will be left with basically nothing.)
