People whose talent I'd steal if I was morally bankrupt and, you know, had the ability to steal intangible things
I consider myself fairly self-confident. I'm not down on myself all the time, and there are actually a few things I can do that I'm proud of. But if given the opportunity to steal—or, more benevolently, replicate—other people's talent, here's who I'd go after.
Michael Phelps. The closest thing to a human amphibian.
Alicia Keyes. A voice like silk over gravel.
Barbara Kingsolver. I don't necessarily want to write exactly like her, but I sure wouldn't mind her success as a writer and a dose of her penchant for honesty.
David Sedaris. Because duh. He can break your heart and bust your gut in the course of a 10-page essay.
Misti Pavlov. If I can't own any of his artwork (yet), I'd at least like to be able to paint them myself.
The list could go on. Whose talent do you covet?
