fish face

I can make the best fish face and I used it to drive my sister, Cathy, nuts. For some reason, it really freaked her out.

I can ride a horse like I’m part of the horse, just not all the time. 100_3221I can make super delectable scalloped potatoes, thanks to Steve. My chokecherry jelly is hard to beat, especially on my homemade sourdough bread.

I can sing and play guitar moderately well and I AllPics 1146love to. I’m quick on my feet when it comes to writing poetry about almost anything. I didn’t say it was good poetry. I don’t give up easily…some say I’m stubborn.

I can run at a respectable pace alex's camera 8 2010 035and I stick to my running habit five days a week. These tiny talents will not rock the world, but they do make up some of who I am. They bring me joy, and community with good friends and family. They remind me that it is the little things that count and that I don’t need to get worked up about what doesn’t matter, what won’t make a difference, what won’t bring a smile or giggle to another.  What are your small talents?
