Playing discovery hopscotch

I cannot get enough. As soon as I think I have good knowledge and a solid grasp on a particular subject — I discover something new and wonderful and different in the said subject. No matter what it is and how much time I spend on one specific topic — whether in a scientific field, literary or art movement, or point in history — there is always more for me to discover, learn, appreciate, and enjoy.

And I love this neverending journey that fills my mind and occupies my time.

Sometimes I get the feeling that some artists, writers, poets, and scientists are purposely hidden by mainstream accessible media. Or at best ignored and kept aside — by misunderstanding or by design — denying the voice of those who won’t play along with hypocritical academia and the ignorant public and won’t let themselves be compartmentalized. That, for me, makes every new discovery so much sweeter.

I am slowly coming to the internal acceptance that I will never be an expert in any defined field. There is not one subject that interests me enough, so I can dedicate most of my leisure to concentrate only on it. I have numerous interests and try to move along between them with frequent jumps from one to the other. Those changes come naturally — a quick reference in one book will lead me to switch my interest to explore those ideas which, in turn, will lead me to yet another curiosity that I want to investigate. And that will never end, as long as I have my mental facilities in good condition, and I am lucky enough to have free time.

And I love this neverending journey and can only wish that it lasts as long as me.
