is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art
and all science. He to whom this emotion is a
stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder
and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his
eyes are closed."
There are so many things about life that are mysterious to me! So many things to learn and discover. We are constantly growing up. I learn something new about myself everyday! Something about the things I like, about the way I approach situations, about my feelings, thoughts, and those of everyone around me. We are all so mysterious, and so beautiful. To take a very small example from my life at the moment - My sister is getting married and I am having the WORST time trying to figure out what to give her! You would think I would know her taste having lived with her for the last twenty odd years, but I am learning new things everyday. When people walk into the antique store looking for something to add to their collections I am almost always surprised by what they collect. One lady I remember had nearly a thousand teacups, another collected salt and pepper shakers, one gentleman had an enormous collection of antique and vintage eyewash cups, and our store once purchased a collection of saucers from a lady who owned 18,000. They covered every wall, door, and cupboard in her home! Collections are important and exciting. When I was growing up I collected dolls (among other things). I only have one of those dolls today - the very first I was ever given. Her name is Cecelia Sue. My Mum's collections have greatly influenced my own evolving style over the years. Her treasures have become as precious to me as they are to her, perhaps mostly because they are hers, and they represent a part of her that I love very much. I have taken some pictures of small collections of things in my home for you to see and maybe you will tell me a little about what you love to collect! Also included is a brand new picture I drew recently. Enjoy!
