Collections are funny things. Ever wonder what it is about something that makes you want to possess it? And more of it? And then some more? What is the attraction? I have been adding to a few collections lately. No big splurges - just good, clean collecting fun. Then I started thinking about what I am collecting, and wondering why...
I collect religious iconography when I am an aethiest?
I collect royal memorabilia when I am pro-rebublican?
I collect old trophies when I never won one myself...well, that's kinda awkward!
I collect every tooth that my children lose... (I think that's just called rabid sentimentality).
The old cameras make sense...
Old books, got that figured.
