What are you good at? Too many things too list.

My explanation is simple, and rips off almost entirely from Robert Fulghum, author of All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten. When we're little, if someone asks us, "Can you sing? Can you dance? Can you draw, play the piano?" we leap to our feet, arm shot high into the air. I can, I can, me, me, let me show you!

Then we grow up, and we change. "I can sing... but only a little. I can dance, but not very well." Our concept of what "able" is, of what "good" is, becomes strangely colored by the wider world of increasing experience. We don't think that we're good at the things we do, just because there might be someone better... and forget how amazing it is that we've managed to learn to do so many different things at all.

"Good" is a relative term without concrete, inherent value.


Writer, maker, coalescer of dreams; you may know me elsenet as bliss/callmebliss/iambliss or even thebigfatman.
