I have understood, only recently, that in our life we need to have hobbies for it is more interesting for our psychological balance. However that doesn’t mean that I have never had hobbies in my life. No!
For example when I was a kid I had certainly homework which consisted in commitments of the school. But out of school and at the week-ends and the long holidays I have always had something, sweet, to do. And these are what I call hobbies.
I played with my friends. We did picnics in the mountains around. We went, in the tender seasons, to a near river and we swam from dawn until sunset! We also made with the clay some busts of famous persons we knew and loved.
Later when I grew up, I changed and my hobbies changed too. I substituted the river with the seaside, the walks with visiting far cities, modeling clay with card playing and crosswords.
Now my last hobbies are painting, writing poems and learning English and Latin languages... but over all I like painting.
