The word Boho is one of those words you hear a lot in some areas of life but I wasn’t familiar with its larger meaning. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary its a person (such as a writer or an artist) living an unconventional life usually in a colony with others. There many synonyms such as bohemian, counterculturist, deviant, free spirit, heretic, iconoclast, maverick, non-conformer, lone ranger, and so on.
Parts of me are very boho in that I am a free spirit, heretic, maverick, non conformer, While I sometimes go along to get along. Perhaps we all do this. Boho can be a style of life where you order yourself in being an individualist. The old saying you do you is one floating around there.
I think many of us have the spirit of being boho but might be too afraid to show it. The men I grew up around were very straight-laced and conformist. Many of the men I am acquainted with are like that. So I am not sure where I deviated from that influence. You could probably blame college for that and also my learning differences made me do things my own way. Taking your own path means being a lone wolf but eventually, you find your pack.
Being yourself whoever that is can be liberating, freeing but it will drive others crazy. Life is crazy and right now the spirit of being a boho can help one survive.
