5 thoughts on “What Are Your Favorite Hobbies?”

  1. I grew up with a great love of stamp collecting. I loved the way a page in my stamp album looked like a miniature art gallery. And I was fascinated to learn the names of far-flung countries I’d never heard of before. It’s harder now that stamps are self-adhesive…

  2. 1. Reading transports me to realms beyond my chair or sofa. I mostly read fiction for this reason.
    2. Playing cards gives me a social outlet that I desperately need. My fibromyalgia often leaves me feeling anti-social and a little foggy in the head but getting out among people (even if I don’t feel like it) is a great antidote.
    3. Now that I have relocated to my home in Illinois I hope to resume gardening.
    4. I also want to start sewing move as creating something from raw materials is life affirming.

  3. Golf is my favorite hobby. I like it for many reasons: it gets me out of the house and into nature; I meet interesting and talented people; it’s offers a never-ending challenge to improve, and it’s a sport that you can do your whole life. And then there’s the spectator aspect, which I also enjoy. Oh, another thing: it’s non-violent, unlike football, which I’ve sworn off watching.

    Reading is my second favorite, especially in winter or on rainy days. My library consists mostly of books on spirituality and golf, along with books on justice issues – poverty, hunger, peace, and justice.

    Last but not least, is the time I spend volunteering at my church, Pax Christi, or Bridging, a non-profit that helps the poor. I’m happiest when I can help others in need. (or when I can spend some quality time with my family).
