I try to keep my tool collection to a just what I need.
I fail at this sometimes but nearly everything has its job and its place.
I keep my wood stash to a controllable level.
I work to curb my need to gather office and art making supplies.
I fail at this sometimes too. I like to try new things. But many of the things end up going to my children for their endeavors.
One thing I will always, unapologetically collect is books.
Woodworking, art and artists, history, sci-fi, sword and sorcery fantasy, RPG's, comic books, movie prop memorabilia, and anything else that catches my fancy. A friend introduced me to the term BAD or Book Acquisition Disorder, and brothers and sisters I have it.
I have given up many vises in my time on this planet: tobacco, alcohol, drugs, and food.
I will never give up my addiction to the written words, drawings, and photos assembled on a page and bound together.

Jep, well said. For me it's Vinyl and books.ReplyDelete
I was raised to cherish books. Unfortunately my dear wife cannot understand why a book needs be kept after reading it. She sees books on shelves as clutter-precious space better used for useless items.ReplyDelete
Just don't dare touch my tools.
