Trial and error.... The only method I know of was simply thinking of things I either once enjoyed or had an interest in and doing. I found that the things I enjoyed and wanted to do more of, if I did even marginal looking there were outlets for. I ended up taking film classes in a college and started in a photo workshop at a library(with offers of other things from that, but lost interest), I found basketball leagues and a lot of friends after looking for a place with an indoor basketball court just so I could start moving around. ---------------I agree. I would add that sometimes you have ebbs and flows during the process. Something else comes up; you get lazy; whatever. Learning dulcimer was like that for me. I found it hard to concentrate and learn when I was still on narcotics. The one thing that did get me to a new level of proficiency was taking a class that was a bit above my level. As a result I had to practice like a mad woman so as not to embarrass myself. And now I play much better.When you get immersed in something, you get to know other people who open up further opportunities in the area and so it grows. That's how I ended up with a bowed dulcimer and suddenly became a member of a small group. Bet there aren't 100 people in the US that play one, and they all know each other.Really digging into a couple of things - music, art, running, knitting, whatever can be a lot of fun. And nurturing, too.arrete
