"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    I am quite good at music, in that I can pick up an instrument and play a tune on it. It might not be the best standard in the world, but I do enjoy making music, and very much like finding new instruments to play whenever I can.
  • nisreen.mustafanisreen.mustafa Posts: 208 ✭✭✭✭
    you know my favorite instrument is the guitar i really wish to learn how to play on it .

    Since I was younger people say that I have a talent for drawing. I also enjoy writing and I'm not that bad. I can play guitar too. I wish I could play piano, it's an amazing instrument :)

    @mheredge Knitting is so interesting who teach it to you ???
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I am quite good at dress designing, artwork especially fabric painting, dough work, cards designing, and creative writing. I also like to do embroidery but now I don't have time to do most of the above activities.
    I also learned knitting from my mum but I didn't like it too much.

  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,497 mod
    I can do a lot of things, but I'm not really good in one thing.
    I don't know where my talent is. :(
  • nisreen.mustafanisreen.mustafa Posts: 208 ✭✭✭✭
    @april ... your talent is that you are a great member
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,497 mod
    Thank you, @nisreen.mustafa :) .
  • GulmiraGulmira Posts: 41 ✭✭
    Every time when somebody asks me if I have hobby or talent, I don't know what to answer... I can't play any musical instrument, I can't paint, I can't draw.., I can't anything... then I think: "Is something wrong with me? I don't have any talent"! :#
    Do you associate the word "talent" only with art? or Does it imply something more? What is talent?
  • otaviosalomaootaviosalomao Posts: 13 ✭✭
    Gulmira "talent" can be a infinity things that you can be easily, if you are a great lazy (i think not :p ) its could be a talent also, useless of course but its a talent.All people has a talent if you think that u don't have any talent so its your talent "no talent" :)

    @Gulmira no it could be any thing you are great in doing it ... for example i have a talent in convincing others of what i think .. also i am a very calm person that did not get nervous fast this could be a talent too .... sense of humer it considered a talent ... any one have a talent but you should try to discover it in yourself .
  • mcc15mcc15 Posts: 79 ✭✭
    @Gulmira Eventually, it's more the case that people think of all types of creativity when they hear "talent".
    I think talent is more of a skill. You can be talented in networking, leadership can be a talent, and so on.
    I'm sure you have a talent!!!!
  • GulmiraGulmira Posts: 41 ✭✭
    @mcc15 @Nisha-raj123 @otaviosalomao , thank you for your comments. Surely, I agree with you, talent is not just about art or creativity and, of course, I have talents:). I have a talent of going shopping the whole day:) or, for example, I have a talent to talk to people about difficult issues without making them angry...

    Everyone has a talent.
  • navidafrasiabiannavidafrasiabian Posts: 1,297 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I think so.My eidetic memory is good.I am also talented in scientific matters,especially chemistry and chemical engineering.I have gone to guitar class for 2 years and I had amazing progress,but I left it because I wanted to focus on my studying.Sometimes I regret!
  • nisreen.mustafanisreen.mustafa Posts: 208 ✭✭✭✭
    @navidafrasiabian ad how did you find the playing on the guitar is it fun ???
