What's Fascinating About You?
One of my friends quilts; not only that, but she has had one of her works one a traveling tour around the state and then on exhibit in Philadelphia. I don’t think many people know just how fascinating she is, because she doesn’t look it. And I wonder if she knows it. After all, how many people you know have quilts on display like that?
Some people have artistic talents like my friends. Others have traveled widely to places unknown and bring back stories of people we will never meet. Friends of mine can fix anything and tell me about it in the process; fascinating. Others could read a telephone book and keep me transfixed.
I could listen to anyone who really knows their stuff and can present it in words I’m able to understand. Doesn’t matter what it is: could be the art of creating a painting, working on a fishing boat or producing a news program. When you hear someone who has done it, their “daily, non exciting” work becomes fascinating to you.
All you have to do is find it. It’s there, no matter how well you know the dullest person. Everyone is fascinating, or has some neat talent you never knew existed. All you have to do is listen. Really listen. Hear the stories, imagine the setting. There are so many stories out there just waiting to be told.
