If you have something unique, you have skills

Check it out.

The guy's got like a monopoly on manual dolphin stomach-pumping when no fancy equipment is available.

Wouldn't it be great to have some crazy unique thing about you that would be in demand in only rare specific scenarios? Like the ability to speak Klingon, and then all of a sudden real Klingons attack the planet earth! You (and a bunch of other trekkies around the world) would be instantly in demand as our main diplomats and spies!

I wish I had a talent. And not just any talent. But a unique one. Don't you hate it when people say that you have a unique talent, but you know that it's actually not that unique? Spouting interesting conversation on demand would be nice too. I admire people who can do that. I can only do it in specific scenarios, and can be quite good if I can get going. But I can't do it on demand. It sucks sometimes, huh? You know it does, you've experienced it too. :p

When Vienna Teng came by Vancouver for her concert, she closed off with this song, saying she wanted to end the night on a happy note. I like listening to it. :)

Harbor
By Vienna Teng

We're here where the daylight begins
The fog on the streetlight slowly thins
Water on water's the way
The safety of shoreline fading away

Sail your sea
Meet your storm
All I want is to be your harbor
The light in me
Will guide you home
All I want is to be your harbor

Fear is the brightest of signs
The shape of the boundary you leave behind
So sing all your questions to sleep
The answers are out there in the drowning deep

You've got a journey to make
There's your horizon to chase
So go far beyond where we stand
No matter the distance
I'm holding your hand
