Once again, another difficult topic for me. :) At first thought, my mind is going in two different directions with this. The first direction is about how we rediscover things that we have loved, and subsequently forgotten. In particular, I am thinking of hobbies and interests. It does seem that sometimes our lives get so busy that we let things we enjoy go by the wayside. We stop pursuing an interest because other more demanding things take over our time. I think this has been happening to me a lot lately because of my current church position. I have far less free time than I have had in the past. But maybe that encroachment on my free time has made me think more carefully about how I spend the little time that I have. Recently I have been getting back to the interests that I love, and have rediscovered how enjoying they can be. There is still one interest that I haven't been able to get back to, and that is photography. I love to go for walks at the nearby regional park, and take pictures as I walk. If I just go walking for exercise, I get tired easily, and don't want to go very far. But if I have my camera, I forget that I am exercising, and I am totally intent on taking pictures. I can walk for miles without noticing fatigue. That is one interest that I need to rediscover.
My other thought with this topic has to do with years gone by. "Vintage" is very popular among the younger generations. They are learning to appreciate the styles and designs that I grew up with. They are discovering for themselves what we enjoyed in our youth. They are also learning to appreciate the television shows that we enjoyed. It's fun to see them discover things that we loved when we were young.
Hmm..I wonder what the other consortium members had to say about this topic. Here are some links if you would like to see for yourself. :)
