What’s in a (Holmesian) Lifestyle?

I believe many of us who have loved Sherlock Holmes for an extended time have passed beyond the honeymoon stage. We’re not just consumers. Many are creators, commentators, and group facilitators. Our lives, whatever our “day jobs” look like contain inescapable traces of Holmes, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

What does this look like for you? I seek out Holmesian films and shows, but beyond that, I constantly find myself seeing inspiration from Holmes in other mysteries and types of media. I read pastiche. I re-read Doyle. I don’t have on-the-ground groups near me, but I maintain online contact. Occasionally, I find myself having a “What would Holmes do?” moment in my real life.

What about you? How does Sherlock Holmes intersect with your everyday life?
