Since I can remember, I was always telling stories about anything and everything. I remember telling my younger cousins stories about elephants, creating vivid pictures of a world that was non-existent. The imagination is a great escape and I used it to create a world where the unreal met the real.
Reading and writing are paths to which we can express our convictions. I believe that everyone can do anything that they decide to do. It doesn't matter if you have a disability or are from a different race. We are all created equally and should be treated as such.
I think that determination and will are very important. Determination gives me the desire to keep trying, even though I may fail miserably. If I keep trying, I will, at some point, succeed. Will gives me the strength to always move forward. It helps me stay focused and positive.
My name always sparks up a conversation. I think everyone always seems to mispronounce it. It doesn't bother me, other than when I get mail addressed to Mr. Talin. Last I knew, I wasn't a male Hindu God! With my supernatural powers set aside, my female name is pronounced as follows: Tal-ean (like Pauline, but with a T) and Mar-ee. Yes, there are a lot of females named Talin, although all may be spelled differently.
