If Talent is Used But No One is Around to Witness It, Is it Talent?


What good is talent if there is no one around to care?  Of course, that view is inherently narcissistic.  Perhaps, then, a better phrasing would be to ask, what contribution does talent make if there is no one on the receiving end?  We could expand further by saying that talent’s reward lies in benefit or pleasure brought about by the exercising of the aforementioned talent.  For the talent possessor, flexing skills that are innate to one’s being is like expanding the lungs with air – it is both necessary and freeing.  Somehow a door containing pent-up [personality] is flung open, allowing a sort of cathartic outpouring.  Something in this expression, too, resonates with the locked away talents of the audience.  Their own doors are raddled within the frames, begging to hearken unto the pull of talent.  So then, while talent fulfills its owner, it additionally feeds the talents of others.

  1. Think of the tree and the forest! But really, I have mad zip tying skills. It is hidden by my entertainment center, but it is there! =) We all have our hidden gems, waiting to be discovered. (Some people like you have more than their fair share ;o) )
