Lack of inspiration I guess, lost the passion.

I’ve been told that I like to do too many things, and don’t settle on one long enough to become proficient.

Hmmm, could be right.

So What Do YOU Collect?

May 27th, 2010 Comments off

So, what do YOU collect? That’s the new name for the Collectibles category.

I don’t actively collect anything at the moment.  That is, I don’t go out looking for bookmarks, unicorns, coins, stamps, or abaci.  But if I happen to see something that strikes my fancy and fits into one of those collections, I just might get it.

When I became ‘caught up’ with using an abacus, I carried one in my car and at stoplights I would give myself problems to solve.  No Oprah, I did not abacus and drive!

Years have passed and I have replaced the abacus with many other interests.  But, when I hold one in my hand, I am still fascinated.  I will be sharing my small abaci collection with you as time goes by.
