When I was a kid, my parents got me a book about Leonardo da Vinci. Apparently, when he was a kid, he expressed an interest in painting, so his folks got him some paints. He painted for a while, then got tired of it and became interested in science. So his folks got him some science books and he went off doing experiments. After a while, he got tired of science and became interested in inventing things. Then he got tired of that and went to sculpting. He bounced around in other fields, occasionally moving back to earlier interests.
I'm exactly like this. One week I'll spend hours and hours obsessively engrossed in HTML design; then I'll hear a song I like and rush off to work on music. Then I'll get distracted by cartooning or crossword puzzles. The more I try to control it, the less happy I am with my free time.
So I just continue bouncing from passion to passion, shifting with the winds like a kite in a spring gale.
