    Is there a talent or a skill you wish you had but don't?

    I see things in nature sometimes and I wish I could sit and paint that exact scene as it is before me but I can't. I just don't have that skill. Is there some talent you wish you had? Or even a skill. I have always wanted to learn how to surf and maybe one day I will learn. Until then, I look on with envy!

    I'd really like to be able to sew well, to alter or make clothes. At junior school, I did some cross-stitch and sewed the work to my own skirt. The teacher had to cut me free. Then at senior school, that teacher watched on as I cut out material to make a dress, but it was a size too small. My mum wrote a letter complaining about the waste of money, and the teacher had it in for me after that. I need to get over it, and take some lessons.

    A talent for playing piano. Whenever I play, it reminds me of my grandmother but she had a talent for playing.

    I can sing, but not American Idol quality... would love to be able to sing well, just for my own pleasure.

    Both my sister and my husband are talented artists.   
    Either of them can free hand a still life, a portrait, or a cartoon.

    Neither of them care about showcasing or expanding their ability.

    Each of them, say, that, I have not " developed" my writing talent.

    I guess, the grass really does seem to be greener on the other side.

    Yes, I would love to be a good artist, to be able to paint beautiful pictures....I used to sketch a lot when I was much younger, but I kind of lost interest in it....not so sure I was too good at it anyway.....but being able to express yourself through painting would be wonderful, I just don't think I am very talented in that area....although I am better in the areas of writing and playing the piano.....we all have different gifts.

    I wish I knew more about cars. I'd like to be able to change my own oil, do minor car repairs on my own, etc. but haven't had a chance to learn those skills. About all I know is how to put gas in it and how to put air in the tires. sad
