    I am truly impressed. They each take it for granted, or so it seems to me, though I know it takes effort and practice, too. I'm so glad they have those skills.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.

      Speaking for myself, there is the expectation that I have the capabilities to paint as well as I do (or design or develop a website from scratch or write lyric poems). Not every painting comes out great; there are some that do not make it to my site, and others that get sanded down and painted over. But there is the knowing that certain talents have been practiced for so many years, decades, that yes it is a natural thing to do. But, I still think of everything I do well as having a gift that I am grateful to have.

      Now, I dabble in crochet and jewelry, and I am good in a rudimentary sort of way. But I am blown away by the gorgeous, imaginative and advanced work that both Fineena and Lorinda Pike create.

      curious portal - to a world of paintings, lyric-poems, art writing, and graphic and web design
