Your statement about specializing vs. being a generalist reminds me of
a point made by one of James Micheners characters in "The Drifters" .
To paraphrase, he said something to the effect that one had to determine
what he wanted to be before the age of thirty, otherwise he would just
become a bum. By that definition I'm now a retired bum. But damned if
I don't have a lot of useless eclectic skills. And I still want to learn.
Give 'em hell.
