The title of this post comes from a book by Anne McCaffrey (1926 - 2011), who was, imho, the "Queen" of science fiction/fantasy. In the book a group of people with some interesting abilities perform some interesting feats using only their minds. (Give it a read if that partiular genre of reading material interests you)
Each of us has something that we do well and without really "working" at it. Some are more blessed (or cursed depending on your perspective) with these talents. For some their "talent" is cooking, for some it is mechanics, for some it is writing, for some it is design, for some it is healing... each of us is different and in each of us out talents are different.
For some the talents are just "there" without conscious thought. For others the talents that they have have been honed to a fine edge, much as a knife maker hones the edge of a Damascus Steel blade. For some their talents have required them to obtain a license from the state in order to do what they do, such as the doctor, nurse or mechanic. For some, such as Stephen King, Arthur C. Clarke, Piers Anthony, Constance O'Banyon, Anne McCaffrey and a host of others, their talents in writing have brought a measure of fame. Still others have talents in acting... they can turn it on and off like a light switch. I think we all can name someone that we are close to who has the proverbial "green thumb" whose house and yard more closely resemble a jungle than they do anything else.
What talents do YOU possess? Have you "trained" them or are they just there? Is it possible that those innate talents that people have are what are called "parapsychic abilities"?
