So here’s my question: what is talent?
Innocuous enough, until we really start to delve deeper. What do I mean by that question? Do I mean how can talent be identified? Or do I mean what do people think talent is? Or do I ask what is the meaning of the word talent?
Getting more complex now: words, as T.S. Eliot wrote, creak and crack under the strain of meaning. Words have always been rather perplexing in the world of Nicola: I have never really found the words to make my thoughts translate accurately into sentences. And when I speak, the real voice that lives in my head goes ‘that’s not what I meant at all! How did that come out of my mouth?’.
So what is talent? and what do each and everyone of us who use the word mean when we speak or write it?
More questions: if we don’t know what we or others mean when they use the word talent, how can we (educationalists, musicians, artists, business people) ever accurately identify it,.let alone nurture it? And does it need nurturing – or will it just rise to the top?
What is talent? other than perplexing and slippery as a word?
