Day 93 – April 3, 2018

There are many interpretations I could have gone with for the prompt today. But I went with a personal one (those are the most fun anyway, right?)  I have a tendency to explore a new “hobby” or attempt a new “skill” every now and then (probably more now than then, much to the chagrin of Miss Red). However, I can’t just try the new hobby to see if I like it, I have to go all out and make sure I have everything necessary in order to give the skill a fair shake.  So yes, this could be a financial issue with a lot of different hobbies, but luckily I haven’t wanted to play hockey, fly an airplane, learn to arc weld, or wanted to build a home studio and try out sound engineering.  I have kept them relatively tame, with the most recent being sketching.  I could have just done it with some computer paper and a pencil, but no that would not cover the full immersion.  I bought this digital edition of “How to Draw in 30 days” and each day you are introduced to a new concept and follow the instructions in the book. I got to day 7, and felt pretty good about my progress, and then got distracted.  I explored the guitar, but of course it couldn’t just be a 6 string, I found a 12 string, an electric, a ukulele and even a banjo.  I didn’t master it, but I got good enough to play some songs, and I even still play now and then.  When I started my first 365, I couldn’t just use a Canon Rebel, I had to learn with the 7D, with different lenses, cases, bags, etc.  Now before you get all judgmental, I normally find many of the accessories, extras second hand, flea markets, or refurbished so I don’t really put a lot of equity into these “fads” so that when I get distracted and leave the hobby for later (like when I have time, or the novel I have been writing for the last 10 years), there really isn’t a big hit to the family budget.  I like to explore new things, so sue me.  Hoping there is warmth in your heart the rest of this week!
