We all have jobs, interests, hobbies, passions, etc. Share with us what you know the most about. I have two lifelong interests and passions. They are classical music and antiquarian books. Every once in a while i think I was born long after my time. ‹(°¿°)›

Hmmm, I'm a bit of a jack of all trades, master of none too. I'd have to say what tops the list for me is Psychological traits and their relationship to planetary forces.

Yes. Lucky or as a matter of recourse, I have more than one looking out for me. I am indeed blessed in that department. I still seem to make life difficult though. Go figure!

Well, I am going to have to go with my creative mind. Writing and artwork are my forte. Some of my poems have been published and I'm working on a chapbook that is a compilation of both poetry and poetry. On a side note... I have a couple of antiquarian books, a very old copy of The Man from La Mancha...pre ISBN days large 8 X 11 white cover, it is boxed away, a copy of Winston Churchill's paintings and a childrens book "Colette and the Baba and Timbuktoo"...

Glory be! I all but forgot about putting this trait in my description. I guess to share some like interests that we do you have to have an imaginative and creative mind. You would be surprised at what some books might be worth that you never gave a second thought of. That is in addition to their personal pricelessness. Then there are old books that are just that, old. ‹(°¿°)›

Thanks. Creativity is really a gift I am thankful for. On a side note, do you mind pricing a couple of books for me? I can send you photos?

Sure funnycole. First send me a private message with the name & author of each book. Also the earliest publish date you can find in each book. Don't worry about the printing date unless you can't find the publish date. We'll start with that. ‹(°¿°)›

Wait for this one, it is going to knock your socks off! I used to be a gymnastics's teacher many moons ago until I got too 'old and stiff' to participate. Then I met my husband, and I was thrown into the deep end, doing his bookkeeping, now I'm so good at it you can bring on the IRS, anytime:) I also play the piano reasonably good, not concert material, but my husband enjoys it, and some of my friends. I like to believe that I'm a good listener, and can pick up a lot, from people's emotions. And like you I have exquisite taste, and a good ear when it comes to music!

Hey that's great. Another bonds that binds us. My sister competed in gymnastics state and region wide in the Northeast U.S. for the better part of her preteen and teen life. Hey that's not fair! You may be beyond the reach of the tentacles of the IRS but I'm not. Careful what you say, they monitor every communication in U.S. borders. I don't want to be forced to deny knowing you. I'm jealous. I would to play the piano, better still a pipe organ ahhh. I took lessons when I was younger but at that age I knew it all anyway so there was no reason to continue. I knew that I could magically pick it up when I was good and ready to. Yeah right. No matter your skill level Annie, I'm sure you and your husband derive plenty of pleasure from you tickling the ivories. Listeners are a dying breed. Thank goodness there are some left to pass on this most exquisite of art forms. ‹(°¿°)›

I hear you! Can you imagine playing the pipe organ like Johann Sebastian Bach! Heaven! I am going to upload some nice classical pieces of my collection over the weekend.

Owwwww Weeeee! Upload away. I'm looking forward to kicking back and listening to the true golden oldies. ‹(°¿°)›

Hmmmm?! That is definitely something I always wanted to go to school for. Did you acquire this knowledge from an institution of higher learning or from hands on experience? LOL Nice to hear from you ecogal. ‹(°¿°)›

Hands all the way! In fact you'll be suprised at how skilled you can get at dodging other peoples slaps to your hands (to get them out of your mouth) while still biting your nails. I've become a master of the technique. :)

Ah my fingernails finally grew back enough to allow me to type another response to you. I'm not a master of the craft so I'm sure I could benefit from your pointers. LOL The things we write about while LOST isn't around. Won't be back until late April. ‹(°¿°)›

I think I know all about failing, well I am arch Queen of Falire so my life long passion now is strategy and dealing with qonquering all of my weaknesses and trying to fathom the best source of winning without shedding too much blood and tears in the process. My life has been one ongoing struggle so I think I have been plonked into that arena of learning lol.

Failing is some of life's best lessons. As long as we pay attention. Nothing is harder to forget or better learned than a successful struggle to overcome failure. ‹(°¿°)›

Talk about a tough call. I'm pretty good at judging people (particularly in the positive) and seeing talents and potential in them, even if they're not aware of it.
• United States
17 Aug 07
It is noble of you to see the positives and potentials in people rather than downfalls and faults most tend to point out. As the first responder noted "myself" I'm sure you know yourself really well. ‹(°¿°)›

Thank you for the positive words. If one studies or meditates on the basic principles of learning and belief--and once we understand how all of our previous beliefs have been assimilated--there is only one conclusion, that once we begin to have awareness of who we are, then we realize that we can (and do) choose, consciously (and unconsciously) determine for ourselves who we are.

Probably The Beatles and the paranormal. But I have a wide range of interests and endless curiosity, so I know a fair amount about a lot of things.

Cool combination. The Beatles and the paranormal. I'm quite sure your other interests are just as exciting. I'm sure you can carry a wonderful conversation. ‹(°¿°)›

I guess history and movies.

I've got a real soft spot for history also. There's nothing better to educate ourselves with. To learn from both mistakes and triumphs throughout time. Having a good knowledge of movies must be quite cool. ‹(°¿°)›

Jumpinjack, I know this isn't the proper venue, but I can't seem to reply to your response to my discussion. But I will try again tommorrow. What you said is wrong, and I will rebute it. Just trying to let you know that I am not ignoring you.

That's fine whenever you get the time I will explain why I'm not wrong but so correct. I was stationed at Subic Bay Naval Base in the Philippines. It's much more than you think or anything the other responders posted. ‹(°¿°)›

I would say I know a lot about children's books, because I enjoy reading them and want to write them. And, I know a lot about movies and actors/actresses from the 1940's. I like watching movies from that period, and I read up on the people who played in them.
• United States

Wow that's great. I hope you do decide to pursue writing children's books. I imagine that would be very rewarding. I must say I also enjoy the actors/ actresses of yesteryear. I believe it took more talent back then. I also feel there was a great deal more originality then. So much of today's cinema is taken from or copied from this period. ‹(°¿°)›

I know how to write well (Letters, stories...) but in my own language because in other languages I'm still learning their grammar haha I also know how to listen, I don't know if this is something so special, but I have such a big patient to listen to people and to do some of my favorite things like make all birthday cards or another celebration card with my own hands and ideas, and etc I know how to work in groups :)
• United States
19 Aug 07
Anyone who writes, reads and/or speaks more than one language is special. Someone who is a good listener is rare and extra special. To use your hands and mind creatively means never growing old. You do have one over me for sure. I really don't like working with a group so much. Ugh. lol ‹(°¿°)›

You can't ask for anything more than having the whole world right at your fingertips. Even though it hasn't taken hold of me you watch and see if computer gaming becomes mainstream when one of the major U.S. networks decides to broadcast a competition sometime in the near future. ‹(°¿°)›

To be honest I think I am what one would call a jack of all trades and master of none lol. I have so many varied interests but at the moment I really enjoy writing and I am learning new skills every day.I think the knowledge I possess is the knoewledge that I don't quite ever know enough and that every day I wake up there is something new to pick up on..
• United States

I too immensely enjoy writing. It sets me free and is bound only by imagination and/or knowledge. I'm sure you'll agree that waking every morning with the chance to learn new things is like writing a new page in a book. ‹(°¿°)›
