hidden talents

lately i've been thinking that too many of us conceal our talents, tuck them away, like treasures in a box. in the past week i've met an engineer who decorates cakes with fondant icing, turning them into confection dreams and a friend's contractor, who built a recording studio in his house to write music that he's too shy to play publicly. the mother who carpools my son to soccer is a black belt in karate. another friend writes screenplays at night....an entreaty to all: don't tuck the best parts of yourselves away for safe keeping. blow open that box, rejoice in your talents. share them, and enrich the world.
