What can you do?

You always want what you cannot have, right?

Rock stars want to be actors, actors want to be athletes, and athletes want to be rock stars. No one is satisfied.

Writers want to direct, instrumentalists want to dance, and dancers want to be comedians.

Some have it all, a great voice, athleticism, and and amazing way of taking center stage, and convincing the audience that they are someone else entirely, while playing a musical instrument, and writing late at night.

I have always wanted to be able to sing a solo and have people smile in amazement while soaking up the beautiful melody seeping from my lips.

I have always wanted to be able to do seven back hand springs in celebration of our team's big win.

I have always wanted to belly up to a drum set, gather my family, and pound out some songs for us all to sing.

I have always wanted to do stand up comedy for more than the empty passenger seat of my car and the front windshield.

I write.

I can carry a tune.

I can still execute a round off without throwing up afterwards.

I can play the first three notes of "Stairway to Heaven" on the piano.

I can throw together a sweet poster for a bake sale or garage sale.

and...

I can backwards skate.

For that, I am thankful.

We all have special God-given gifts and talents.

What can you do?

I can say the alphabet backwards and recite the states in alphabetical order.

My talent knows no bounds.
Sit down. I can count really fast by FOURS.
