Editors Note CollectJ. Kent Martin
“It is perhaps a more fortunate destiny to have a taste for collecting than to have been born a millionaire. “
Robert Louis Stevenson
Hmmm…I don’t know about that one. Collector vs. millionaire? Oh well. If it’s any consolation, a million dollars isn’t what it once was.
I find collecting to be the most rewarding, egocentric, self-indulgent activity there is. How hedonistic, pursuing a personal passion solely to have not only more, but more with absolutely no limits.
So, Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, how about this? I don’t need the million dollars. Because the most valuable collection I have is my collection of friends and all the priceless memories.
Enjoy our completely indulgent month of celebrating Collecting.
