I hear people say, "Someone has too much time on their hands..."
Usually it is in response to an offbeat creative project. Is it an excuse? "I'm too busy to do that kind of thing." Or a criticism? "I don't think the result was worth the time spent making it." The voice can be admiring, but the admiration is mixed with dismissal.
I guess I don't believe in "too much time" as a problem. You make choices. You find time. You take chances. You enjoy the process. Sometimes others enjoy the result.
