IN BRIEF: Something that one likes to do for pleasure in ones spare time.
This is the definition of hobby I got from google…now the story what led me to google it. Recently we had a chance to meet some immensely talented people-which led us, both me and hubby, to introspect and search if we are really good at doing anything?? And is there something constructive we can do and we love to do when we have some spare time. Result –zero, zilch, nada…!!
So one of the talented people is a guy who is a painter- not the lady, mind you, but the Mr is a painter. And what collection he had to flaunt at his place!! It was simply unbelievable – and he says soon as he has sometime on his hands, he picks the brush and starts to paint. And it results in a work of art to adorn the walls of the house. Its an achievement to be lauded.
The other person is an excellent photographer- and not just point-and-shoot kind, but someone who pays attention to all the details and if he has a background color in mind, he goes and buys a fabric and dye and really dyes the fabric!! And he buys different lenses and has a mini-lab to adjust the lenses to his need. The result- masterpiece pictures – to keep forever.
These are examples of worthy and creative hobbies which result in something you can cherish forever. So we were discussing about what we do in spare time, we hobbyless good-for-nothings- just sit on the couch and watch some senselessmovie.
At this hubby pointed out that you blog and you can do that when you have time-that totally qualifies for a hobby.
NO!!- I think blogging is not something you can do when you find time. It is compulsive, it can be so dominating and demanding!! You get some idea in your head and your fingers start itching to type in-spare time or not, you have to do it.
It keeps on gnawing at you from within.
And its like a heavy rock you carry on yourselves and keep feeling the weight of it, unless its typed in and posted on the blog.
Hope fellow bloggers agree with me.
