Superpowers

From one of my very favorite people, morenasangre:

"I've seen posts over and over again on my friends list asking, "if you could have any superpower, what would it be." I love that question...it teases out smiles and wakes childhood dreams. But another question keeps pulling at me, and I want to ask it and to encourage others to ask it in their journals, ask of their friends,

What superpower do you have?

Oh, you scoff - superpowers are the stuff of comics and children's fantasies. Well...yes and no...you may relegate superpowers to those places if you wish, if you fear to see magic at the corner of your eye, but there is a place for magic in our lives if we allow it to sneak out of the corner and into the light. We all have superpowers - perhaps the power is drawing people together, creating a network; perhaps the power is being able to listen and cry with those in need; perhaps the power is intuition, seeing all the things others seem to miss or knowing what someone is going to say before they say it; perhaps it is a natural affinity with dogs or with computers; perhaps it is a magical rapport with children. What power do you have? What is the superpower you use every day? And do you use it for good or evil? "
