I’ve been collecting things since I was little. Too many things to mention, and too many things to keep. The collecting kept me focused and helped tune out noise in my mind over the years. I love seeing the differences and the similarities in a grouping of like items. Many of my items are packed away simply because we don’t have the space to properly display everything. I try to rotate things, but it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like. I’m working through the process of trying to let things go, but it isn’t easy. I thought it would be good to really look at everything again and see what stories and memories the items bring to mind.
