Bohemian: (adj) a person who has informal and unconventional social habits
It took me years to understand that Bohemia begins two inches outside “the box.”
I have often been accused of Bohemian behavior simply because I question a misguided practice which long ago wore out its worthy welcome.
It’s remarkable that people would rather sustain the dead than risk birthing something squalling. Children are annoying, after all. It’s a very long time before they prove any value to society–and in that way, Bohemian ideas are similar to offspring.
Some are good and grow into delightful examples of wisdom and kindness.
Others are bad seed, pointing out our weaknesses and stupidities.
So I would like to give a counter-definition for Bohemian:
Bohemian is the next thing we’re experimenting with, which soon will be so common that we’ll be looking for something Bohemian.
