the benefits of a collection
1. they help you learn about the world
2. you go to different places while on the hunt than you otherwise would
3. they teach you to make connections in society
4. they tell a lot about you
5. its happy to see a multitude of something you love all in one place
6. it gives people something to buy you when they travel
Just before our love got lost you said “I am as constant as a northern star.”
Oh you taste so bitter and you taste so sweet.
Oh I could drink a case of you. Still I’d be on my feet.
Oh I am a lonely painter. I live in a box of paints.
-Joni Mitchell “case of you”
