Am I reincarnated? Check out this evidence.
A lot of coincidences if I'm not.

I remember when I was really young, maybe 4 or 5 years old thinking, "What am I doing here." In other words questioning as to what purpose as much as my young mind had the ability of thinking 'why am I here?' 
Then I remember being sad and looking back knowing now what I didn't know then was I was experiencing 'depression', and it was depression for no reason. I had not been on Earth long enough for there to be reasons.
My brother Ronnie and I at one time, don't remember exactly used sticks to 'sword fight' or 'fence' as it's called and there was no way we could have a knowledge of it for there was no Television.
Still quite young I wanted to knife throw and I did with knives seems like I made from old files in my Dad's wood work shop. Also I bought a 'throwing knife' one time.
Before I was 13 years old here's what I was doing. Nothing I was taught either. I made camp sites. I would take pine branches an make a 'lean too' [not sure on the name], and put rocks in a circle for my camp fire. I would line the perimeter with rocks I had to search for and bring to my camp site. My site was in a stand of pines. No rocks. No undergrowth now that I think about it. 
Also I made myself a bow and arrow but made it out of the wrong kind of wood. But it would still shoot over two hundred yards if it was shot elevated at about 10 o'clock.
This part I hate to tell. Before 'puberty' without having an inkling of an idea why I was interesting in sex, and by sex I mean I had an overwhelming desire to see and fondle a 'Virgina,'
Another thing. For no reason at all I would try to kill birds. My neighbor childhood friends in the house next door would get mad as hell at me for throwing rocks at the birds or their nest.[Between our yard and their yard]
Although I was aware at 13 that my Grandpa Smith hunted fox and sold their pelts to help make an income, and he had given me his rifle as an inheritance for me to have when he 'passed' as to the way folk like to say today rather than 'die.' I wanted to hunt Squirrel before the age of 13. [My Grandpa Smith died on my date of birth November 10, 1949 when I was 10 year old. I must have taken after him for after begging for who knows how long I talked my Mom into allowing me to hunt below the house in a small patch of woods about a half mile or so from the house. I very vividly remember that first squirrel I shot. Looked to be the 'Buck' of his woods.

[The 22 caliber Rifle was a Remington 22 short only and was a semi-auto and held 22 bullets.] I was at my own suggestion, to use it as a single shot.

 A short summery.
1-Very early depression. [Still have depression. Being treated for depression and Bipolar now]
2-Fencing - sword fighting. Knew nothing about either.
3-Knife throwing. [Had seen no one do it]
4-Camp making. [No one taught me]
6-Bow and arrow making. [No one taught me]
7-Hunting with a passion for it.
8-Had an intuition to kill animals.
9-However I had been hunting with my Dad before I started on my own.
So what do you make of all this?
Am I a reincarnation?
Have I lived before like many have said they did?
Where do peoples talents come from?
There are some who are famious for being a singer or a poet or a writer. Some appear to be gifted in being able to play a musical Instrument without seeming to have to learn how as othere's do. you have to overlook a lot of evidence to be or try to explain it all away.

My son has many talents that were never taught him. My belief is that it's in the 'genes' and one of our ancesters has passed on to him knowledge that seems to be there for no reason.
