Rediscovering Old Hobbies

Since I haven’t been trying any new recipes lately I have been rediscovering old hobbies I use to enjoy. I have started playing guitar and writing music again. And the most surprising is I have found my way back to photography. It is a little different now than when I used to take pictures. I…
