I was wondering if someone could help me find a word based off of my description.
I would like a word that means something along the lines of "fleeting, wandering and prone to drifting off" or something like this.
I'm trying to describe thought in a "Men fear thought" analysis.
Trying to breakdown the line "Men fear though more than ruin" I was trying to assert that thought is _ as it is "fleeting, wandering and prone to drifting off".
If anyone has some insight into a particularly helpful word, or one that seems to fit well, please let me know!
I would also like for the word to possibly carry a little bit of a negative connotation, so it can be tied into the analysis of "more than ruin".
Also, I think the word should have its emphasis on "prone to drifting off" and also "leading to other kinds of malicious thoughts/things" if you know what I mean.
