What’s Up? June 18, 2013
Yesterday I was doing a bit of drawing with some students from John G. Stewart School. I haven’t done any sketching for a long time so I was rather pleased with my drawing from a Dr. Suess book. I used to draw cartoon characters and different animals a lot when I taught drawing classes at the Haven. I gave some of my art work to my granddaughter. I used to have quite a few hobbies a few years ago. Some of them have gotten neglected with time and age but I have recently tried to get back into some of my former interests. I believe in trying to keep both my mind and body active as I have gotten older. Some of my physical hobbies such as working out at the gym, going for bike rides and taking our dogs to the dog park have been put on hold due to issues with inclement weather and some of my health issues. Yesterday, I took up a new hobby, teaching myself how to play bass guitar. I have already had a couple of practice sessions and am really enjoying learning to play the bass.
