question came up a couple of weeks ago. I've never really considered myself here for a single purpose. having thought about it figured a system like that would have the potential to be chaotic on a planetary / species basis. I think perhaps our most primal purpose may be to simply multiply in order for the species to survive/ thrive. other than that i'm not sure
tough one. I think the two are somewhat connected (purpose/ gift) though I would probably say talent as gift might imply someone or something 'gifted'
I've a talent for music, for understanding, for creating , for leading. i'm lucky in that I can use them mostly on a day to day basis.

I have a deeply rooted sense or "calling" for helping people. I do it in many different ways. I don't feel like I'm here for me but for whatever the world needs of me, kind of thing. Sounds grand but I'm just a little person doing my bit. For 20 years as a nurse, but also my work as a volunteer "big sister" to rape and invest victims, or taking in homeless people, or having my home as a secret shelter for people in transit from danger to safety. Or by listening to a stranger, or loved ones. Giving what I can, when I can.
Helping and not so much "changing" people but more so amplifying what they need to reach what they want (within reason). I bridge it if I can.
(am not a sports fan of any any kind - used to play soccer, do gymnastics, volleyball, and coach in all of them but.. Found other more meaningful things to do for me)
Why do you write? How did it start, for you?
