Over the years I seem to have given up most everything that once took up my time as well as my energy. I don't write much. Not sure if that's because I don't play much or record much or, maybe, because it's all been written.
I gave up facebook, but to be honest, facebook gave me up first. Same with romance.
My big discovery is that free time is amplified and augmented by the disappearance of drama. Oh, I've got climate change and the pandemic and supply chain issues to face, but that's chicken feed compared to the rigors of a social life.
Meanwhile, I'm reading books that have piled up on the bedside table for years. Oh, and the memories- lord, I have memories.
