Over the years I've had several hobbies I suppose. One of the first I became interested in was archery, competitive target archery. Six or seven years ago I bought a harmonica to use like a medical device. I was in Pulmonary Rehabilitation because I had gotten really bad. I would go to the furtherest back room, shut the door, and blow in and out on the harmonica, trying to force out the carbon dioxide from my lungs so I could breathe in more oxygen. It seemed to help. Over time I learned to play the harmonica a bit. Few people really ever master the harmonica. Now I play it. I get up early, close the door to my office, turn on my computer, and read and as I read I play. Old religious songs which are easier to play, country songs from the late forties and the fifties or maybe one I heard on the radio yesterday. I play some rock, some old Elvis Presley stuff, some Ray Charles. My wife said to me the other day, "You know you do better when you get up early and play your harmonica for a while. She's right. It does help my breathing apparatus. But I really enjoy playing now, because it sounds good, and it feels good. Is that a hobby? I think so and now that I've gotten older and can't do much physically, writing has become something of a hobby and whether good or bad it gives my mind a workout that also feels good. But I think whatever we can do to relieve stress or make life a little itsy-bitsy better, if we keep at it, enjoy it, it's a good hobby. Cheers.
