    Guitar, I would not be lying if I said I cared more about my guitars than some people I know, playing is a brilliant way to express your inner artist, and allows a channel to release emotion through. And while its taken me years to travel to the point I'm at, it's satisfying to know that I can keep getting better, keep learning more, so yea, that's my humble opinion.

    I consider my writing my favorite hobby. I consider it a hobby because I don't make a lot of money doing it. But the main reason I love writing my novels is because I can be creative and I find it peaceful and relaxing.

    Several years ago I was introduced to Scrapbooking and got very involved in it and thoroughly enjoyed it as did my two adult daughters.

    Then I had an eye opening conversation with my oldest daughter. She said, (kind of joking) when you are gone I get the scrapbooks, right?

    It made me realize that these books that have been so much fun to create can only belong to one family--now which one will it be, her family or her sister's? I sort of lost interest after that.  I'll put the photos in order in a box and they can battle over who gets them when I am gone.

    My hobby has always been reading. I don't usually list reading as a hobby if the list of options does not include reading as a hobby. Most of our adult days are spent realizing that reading the things we enjoy do require some luxury time. I don't normally get to read the books I want to read, but I have to read the ones I need for class, presentation, my work, etc.
