In 1862, the British journal Westminster Review defined Bohemianism as, "To be young, to be fond of pleasure, to care nothing for worldly prosperity, to scorn mere respectability, and to rebel against rigid rule,—these are the qualities which alone may be regarded as essential to constitute the Bohemian.”

I'm way past the point of anyone considering me "young," and while I may care nothing for worldly prosperity, I've become inordinately fond of certain bourgeois comforts.  But otherwise, the Westminster description can apply to me, a Bohemian elder.
