I've always been keenly aware of both sound
and color. I am extremely sensitive to vibrations, in people, in the air.
I have sensed and predicted earthquakes before
occurrence for example.
I think this sensitivity to noise/sound is
part of my need to create my own music. I feel
others don't make the exact kind of music my
soul needs to provide inner balance.
Composition for me is truly an effort to
self-heal something that feels "off".
For years I was underly sensitive to smells.
I was a window decorator for a dept store and had
to enter the windows through the perfume dept
storage area and it would knock others over to
walk through it and I didn't notice it at all...
but thats not the case any more. I have opened
up all my senses more keenly in the last twenty
years.


The truest insights into a person's
character are two things:
1. How he treats people who cannot help him.
2. How he treats those who cannot
fight back.

Does 6th sense count? wink

I have always had excellent vision, especially comparatively, nowadays, when so many people have glasses.

Absolutely! 6th sense definitely counts.
I make my living using my 6th sense.
I also have unusually good peripheral vision
and can still read without glasses at the
age of 57.

My eyes have gotten bad in the last 6-7 years. (My sister got the good eyes.)

But my hearing, touch, and smell are finely tuned to near the ability of someone with a handicap in one of the other areas. (So, I can hear as well as a blind person, etc.) My taste isn't so great, or at least, if it is, I don't place much stock in it. wink

My best "ability" is probably my body-mapping ability. I am, for some weird reason, unbelievably atuned to my own body. I can change and adapt fine-toned movements by the smallest amount and actively be aware that I have done it. (It comes from my martial arts background as well as my coach parents who introduced me to every sport imaginable as soon as I could walk.) I learn physical things in days that it takes the "average person" weeks or even months to learn. (Unfortunately, it still takes me weeks to "get it in my system" because I can adapt so quickly... in other words, I can adapt out of the "right way" as easily as I can adapt into it. So, it's a double-edged sword. wink )


Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.

My senses are very good but not exceptional for my age.
