I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • Riding a bike is a hobby? I have a t-shirt that is worn out (but I have saved it for a future hobby) that says, “Cycling is life. the rest is just details.” 🙂 To answer your question: I don’t believe reading the Bible should be a hobby. It should be a “life preserver.” A Christ-follower needs to look at the Word as Life to a dying and thirsty soul. A hobby to me is something I do to ease the tension and I do in my spare time. (I like to do jigsaw puzzles). yeah, easy answers is not where it is at. Love ya sis and take no offense at your remark about bike riding. 🙂

    • LOL 😀 I almost hyperlinked “riding a bike” to your page 😀 I know it’s more than a hobby for you 🙂

      OOhhh!!! Jigzaw puzzles – love them! Can’t do them at home however because I’ve got an uber-curious cat that is active despite the old age. I did enjoy putting pieces together last week at my friend’s place – she’s got a Flags of the World puzzle.

      Love ya too, big bro 🙂

    You are right: a spiritual path is not a hobby. It is central to one’s life and defines the life. Perhaps the musicians hadn’t considered the questions carefully enough. Who asked the questions anyway? Today I have been reading a book about Shakespeare by John Bell, an Australian actor and director who has worked on Shakespeare all his life. John dismisses the theory that the plays were written by the Earl of Southampton, or some other aristocrat in his spare time. Apart from all the other evidence against this idea, John points out that nobody could have produced the works of Shakespeare in his spare time. These superb works are the product of a lifetime of experience in theatre. Shakespeare probably had hobbies, but playwriting was not one of them.

    • Perhaps the musicians hadn’t considered the questions carefully enough – either that or they thought that by saying that, it will somehow improve their status as a Christian band… or as “good Christians”…

      RE: Shakespeare – hmm, interesting. I can easily believe that Aesop’s tales weer a collection of various authors, but Shakespeare? I agree with John – this kind of literature speaks of real investment of time and effort – and indeed – the very “insides” of the theater life had to be known.
