Being around my adult children has broadened my horizons. I am reading more books these days. I even own a Kindle, which I love. My choice in books has widened to include more than just mystery and romance. I am reading comedy and, even though I find it hard to believe, sci-fi novels.
Another area I seem to be developing a wider spectrum of interest is in music. While I don’t understand how it works, I have a lot of tunes loaded on my laptop. I also have them loaded onto my phone which makes it nice to listen to them when I go on long walks.
My interest in music has me listening in the evenings and I have even tried to relearn playing the guitar. Did you know there are lessons on the internet that allow you to follow along while placing your fingers on the strings? I checked out headphones that block out noise so that I am not distracted while feeling the pain of re-callousing the skin on the tips of my fingers. I am enjoying the pace at which I can re-learn all the chords I used to play with ease.
Expanding my interests beyond sewing. Who’d have thunk it!?!
