I think alot of people who have Clusters have one talent or another. You'll find most people here to be very articulate or possessing many talents.
I have been playing guitar and drums for 20 years (2/3rds of my life!) bass for about 12 years, a little bit of keys for about 6 years, and have been singing (screaming) for about 9 years. I have also been writing songs (both lyrics and music) for about 18 years; I write poetry, prose, short stories - and have begun writing a novel about a guy who has everything going for him in life but.... he starts getting these headaches and...
...little by little they destroy his life and everything he has worked for.
Who knows. I've been a musician for 20 years and never gone anywhere with it (for the most part, due to lack of finances), and have been writing this book for about 5 months now. I will freak if I make it as an author after being a struggling musician for so long.
I was told that God gives everyone different giftings; to some He gave talent, to others he have looks. To some he gave both.
I got stuck with the talent, not the looks.
Both of my brothers also play guitar (one plays calssical and is an artist, the other one tinkers with guitar and majors in electronics). My older brother sold his guitar when he married his first wife because "she wanted him to". I told him, "Look, your talent is a gift! You don't just throw that away. I would never give up my music for a chick!!!"
Well, I am single, but not because of music; rather it is a debt owed in big part to the CH demon. He likes to keep people away, if you know what I mean.
