What Do You Do For Fun?

It was a simple question, but I was taken aback. The guy I have plans with this weekend asked, â€œSo what do you like to do for fun?â€
And I stopped in my tracks.
â€œFor Funâ€ recently hasnâ€™t been about sky-diving or motorcycle-racing or any of the adrenalin-pumping activities I associate with a man asking what I like to do for â€œfun.â€
Instead, â€œfunâ€ conjured up something very quiet for me. Most of my fun over the past few months has been about quiet times in my gardenâ€”much of it hard workâ€”about some wonderfully peaceful moments in nature, about just creating a serene and secure environment. Nothing loud and boisterous. Some nice adventures, yes, but recently itâ€™s been more about roots and wings than just careening and laughing loud. Both are good, but I guess Iâ€™ve needed more of a connection from within during these last couple of months.
Yes, I know that â€œfunâ€ and â€œplayâ€ arenâ€™t necessarily wet and wild activities or events, but my reaction to the question surprised me more than the question itself.
