#Question for the #Fediverse: what new hobby, physical or spiritual practice, or subject did you begin in #April or shortly after you began self-isolating?
Do you still practice that activity?
What have you learned?
Would most of us in the #fediverse enjoy or benefit from what you're doing if we tried it ourselves?
@cosullivan I joined an online ACIM group that meets on Wednesday evenings via Zoom.
@cosullivan There should be a resource for online groups. This group is a group I used to attend in person years ago, but stopped when I moved away. One of the members invited me online since they moved online due to covid.
@xmanmonk I found the link - https://www.miraclecenter.org/wp/online-study-groups-fip/ Seems I missed last night's livestream.
@cosullivan But if you'd like to join us online, you're welcome to.
@xmanmonk Thanks, I'll contact the local-to-me point people to see if they're temporarily online, then when this lets up I'll possibly join them in in-person groups with less awkward unfamiliarity
@cosullivan ohh this a lovely thread :). I started playing shogi, which is an ancient japanese game, great for the mind! As for the rest of the fediverse, it would be really could if you start to aswell so we can all play along haha
@crispr Hashtag the word 'shogi' in your toot and I'll boost it to help you attract interested people. 👍
@cosullivan I've been doing things in small bites like learning how to use chopsticks properly, new knot ties, more language, finally successful with bread - and by now the freezer is half full of pre-cooked meals. Still with the mushroom growing, planning the garden, messing with s/w, taking decent walks.
My little brain needs to be busy all the time and self-isolation is very close to 'situation normal' for me - I just don't have the rhythm of going to work or mass to tell the days apart.
@cosullivan I've been watching every 1960's beach movie I can find.
Yeah. I know. I'm not aiming very high.
@johnhattan I dunno, cameos of Buster Keaton, Dick Dale musical moments, and Paul Lynde sightings are balms for an itchy mind
@cosullivan and the age old question, Frankie Avalon, Fabian, or Tommy Kirk?
@cosullivan Hung a punching bag in the basement, partially to give myself more exercise, partially so the children can take out their frustrations on something rather than someone. Somewhat successful for me, not really for them as yet.
