Hobbyfly 4 August 2010

Dr Moose has encountered a wonderful neologism, the accidental creation of LMP this morning as she reeled off a list of flying beasties for some not-quite fathomable reason at a quarter to seven on my day off! Nevertheless I can picture the hobbyfly now – one who flits from pastime to pastime, gathering the pollen of knowledge and experience, randomly mixing topics and so acquiring at least a passing familiarity of many subjects and activities. Sufficient perhaps to at least contribute to conversations, while never actually concentrating intensely upon them or feeling a complete insider. One who finds concentration on any one project or endeavour for too long a serious challenge, maybe even verging on an impossibility.

Somehow the hobbyfly sounds remarkably familiar.
