If you collect something, you start to create a group of similar things. If you were collecting cow-spotted items, pretty soon, you'd realize lots of people like the cow print. They'll start buying you shirts and coffee mugs and stickers and screen savers. You'll regret ever indicating a strong preference for a thing. Or, you might actually appreciate all the newfound clutter err treasure.
If you are a hoarder, is it because you actually put some of your life energy into the items - and you can't get rid of them because that would be like getting rid of part of you?
I'm more of a thinker than a feeler. So, I don't infuse my writing or my coffee mugs or any collection with too much love. Just the right amount. It's not, not made with ❤️, but maybe it's really not.
Maybe to share so much of oneself, it has to drip with sentiment. It has to melt with emotion. I'd like to get there someday, but today isn't that day. For now, I just want to riff on collections and then see what they're all about.
If you're a PATRON of 200WordsaDay, now you know where your money is going. Baz is eating -- and thus has energy to create!
