This week our topic for Writer’s Quotes Wednesday’s Challenge #17 is Leisure. Check out my page for more information.
To participate, find a quote about leisure, write a post, put a link to this post somewhere in your post. It doesn’t hurt to leave me a link in the comment section either because sometimes I don’t get notification about your post.
How Bloggers Spend Leisure Time
People spend their precious leisure doing many useful and enjoyable activities. Blogging is my hobby of choice right now, which encompasses any hobby. I’ve met bloggers who love horsemanship, reading, writing, travel, cooking, skiing, uphill slogging, walking/running, hiking, stretching/Yoga, cartooning, and I’m sure you can add so many more. How many leisure activities can you list?
How about Dancing?
“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”Martha Graham
Here’s the original recording of King Harvest who recorded “Dancing in the Moonlight.”
Organizing your leisure effectively is the highest level of civilization.Bertrand Russell
What about games?
“Benjamin FranklinWe do not stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.
My dad and I used to play chess. My mother and her parents played bridge. My husband and I love card games, too. Our favorite is pinochle. What games do you and your family enjoy in your leisure time?
“We all need empty hours in our lives or we will have no time to create or dream.”Robert Cole
My new friend Lisa Coleman challenges her followers to take pictures of birds from her blog, Our Eyes Open. Challenge #39 is birds that eat fish. Here are some birds photographed for her challenge.
Travelers or Trekkies?
With the availability of the vaccine, we all hope that traveling will soon open up. One of my favorite travel photographer, Tina Schell, of the Lens Artists Photo Challenges reminds us in LAPC Challenge #139 that life is full of special moments. I found this next quote on her post.
“Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. ”Sarah Breathnach
One of the most special moments in my leisure life was a trip to Australia, where I met two of my favorite bloggers, Carol and Leanne and many of their friends. They nearly wore me out taking pictures. But I saw incredible sights like this man playing the digeridoo, a very unusual experience.
Do you love to spend leisure moments traveling?
About that List of Leisure Activities
When you think of leisure what quotes come to mind? Give us a piece of your mind using quotes from someone else’s mind! 🙂
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your participation in the Writer’s Quotes Wednesday Writing Challenge. It takes effort to look up quotes and then think about what to do with those quotes. A couple of weeks ago a friend suggested that I drop the challenge if no one participated in a month. I’ve decided to keep going for a while. The challenge is starting to grown on me. These three woman keep me going.
If it is easier for you, write your quote in the comment box with your poem, opinion, picture, or other response. I will visit your blog either way.
