Hobnobbing with hobby

What if the hobby becomes a passionate commitment and it becomes financially productive.

Forgotten Hobbies

What are my three hobbies Plinky enquires, my lady what is a hobby?

The poet W.H.Greever reckons.–

A hobby may be a fancy wild

Or just a whim as in a child

It something is one likes to do,

And does by choice with pleasure too

May outlet be for latent skill

Or just life’s way a gap to fill;

May tribute be to best in art,

When love for beauty fills the heart;

May be God's way, with soil and air,

To bring to life some beauty rare;

Or it may be some form of sport,

Beyond the call of duty's court;

May be excuse for chance to play

When duty's call bids one obey.

When one can be to duty true

And not compelled a thing to do.

A hobby's good, as men have found,

If one be ill; or one be sound,

When duty tends to make a slave,

A hobby helps one's freedom save;

No matter much what hobby be

It matters most that one is free.

The dictionary says an activity or interest that is pursued for pleasure or relaxation. And not as main occupation.

Hobbies of any kind are boring except people who have the same hobbies. ~ Dave Barry Quotes~ how true, this is true for religion too.

To quote from All the names – there are people like Senhor Jose everywhere who fill their time or what they believe to be spare time by collecting stamps, coins, medals, vases, postcards, matchboxes, books, clocks, sports shirts, autographs, stones, clay, figurines, empty beverage cans, little angels, cacti, opera programmes, lighters,pens,owls music boxes, bottles, bonsai trees, paintings, mugs, pipes glass obelisks, ceramic ducks, old toys, carnival masks and so on, and they probably do so out of something we might call metaphysical angst. Perhaps because they cannot bear idea of chaos being the ruler of the universe, which is why using their limited powers and with no divine help they attempt to impose some order on the world, and for a short time they manage it, but only as long as they are to defend their collections because the day comes when it must be dispersed and that day always comes, either with their death or when the collector grows weary, everything goes back to its beginnings, everything returns to chaos.

So back to the question what are my three hobbies?

Books books and more books, I read them I write them, story them I cherish them, and I share them.

Cooking, it creative, filling and makes me a woman of substance

But what if the hobby turns financially productive does it cease to be a hobby?
