I'd be interested to hear others new interests post BI, these are not what I would call hobbies, but just things I have found myself interested in. These include leaving any natural plant life on a window sill to see the drying out process and just what things become, on my window sill are a shrivelled radish, a piece of ginger, 3 small beans, a tomato stalk, a small red chilli and various seeds, (it always seems a shame to throw a seed away when you consider all the potential to become whatever the plant it might be," give a seed a chance" I say. Also rocks that stand by themselves, I have 4 of these, I like to hold and study the surfaces, to think these have been around possibly millions of years , they have a presence, a stillness (obviously) that is calming and a tad consciousness I believe. There are various stone door stops around the flat including a piece of iron ore and a chunk of flint, a piece of scoria that was evicted from a volcano millions of years ago, solidifying in mid air and somehow found its way into my local park? its meditative to consider the journey its has been on, I've just looked over at it, do you think it knows I am writing about it, peeking up just over the CD player, yes I think it does.
