Nerdfighters

Talents, we each have our own. Perhaps they're small, subtle or none too blaring to the public or yourself; but it rests within you nonetheless. Be it the ability to comprehend languages too being able write with bonnie - beautiful for non-Scots - style. As it's likely clear from reading any my previous pieces on this site, grammar or writing isn't exactly my forte. No, rather my own skill lies in the ability to capture a moment. Which is the fancy way of saying I take pictures of an already created scene and then claim it as my own. That's right, photography's my skill. Now, I don't generally like sharing much more than my own thoughts when I'm writing one of these. But, I want to get you lot all writing and responding, typing up what makes you, well; you!

We have over eighty thousand members, which helps make up this giant community. Without you, we'd be twiddling our thumbs doing squat all. So hell, make yourself known. Blare yourself off in the comment section. Who knows, you might find someone you can relate to, who shares your love for one thing or another. Then in the end, what's the harm in interacting with the community to which you find yourself placed within? No much point if you aren't taking the time put yourself out there in a sense. 

But, to show off my talent - and to get you lot showing your own off -, here's a little taste of what I've been able to produce over the years. Don't get me wrong first of all. I'm constantly picking out faults in my own work. From a bad focus, to an over-lit exposure. To even the colouring being all wrong - being colour blind in a field were colour plays an important rule might be a slight set back, it seems -. 

Now that I've shown off mine.

Time for you to show off yours!

I feel like my talents lies in writing. Not to sound snooty, because god knows I don't believe I'm any good at it. However, I've been told by plenty of people that I'm good, and I love doing it, so I would say it's a talent. Sometimes it's songs and sometimes stories. :D  Example of a song/poem:

Really liked that piece, flowed well in my opinion, keep it up ^_^

I'm also an amateur photographer!

Love the wee bits you put up, though, being colour blind I'm likely not seeing the colour piece as you quite meant it to be seen xD

Also, I enjoy music very much; my primary instrument is horn, but I also play drums and very little guitar!

I'm not too great (at least I think so) but I'm not horrible, and I enjoy it. So I guess that is my talent.

Well, you can play nicely, lords know I can't touch any instrument without making angels weep with horror and devils dance with delight.

 I um... make jewelry? Is that interesting? 

Of course, actually know a lassie who does this for a career. The stuff you can make is simply brawsome. 

Keep at it, can only ever get better ^_^

Not everyone gets why I did it, why a fictional tree should inspire the devotion of hand-cutting hundreds and hundreds of tiny green-and-silver leaves.  But sometimes the right person sees it, and they make impressed sputtering sounds, and it was worth it.

It looks simply braw, grand amazing, Sarah. Heck, the most artistic thing I can make with my hands is a stick man. And even then, they always turn out bent.

Well, presumably you raise Dodging to an Artform.

Pilgrimage [Simple Tunes]

I walk from the city gates
I am tired of bearing just what's on my back
I lumber through the dusty streets, over sewer grates
And try to face the fact I'm not coming back

Pitch a tent by the edges of civilization
And glare at them from the cloth door
Dwelling deep in my indignation
I can't move when i wake up this sore

Pass a few travelers every now and then
Exchange a few glances and I'm alone again
Fill the silence with empty whistling, tunes that I used to know
And start to miss home


I will walk
I will walk
I will walk for a long long time

And I will learn
I will learn
I will learn, the secret to eternal life
