Fetish - fixation, craze, mania, obsession... (Webster's thesaurus)
I have to admit, I'm fascinated with many things and love to collect some of them along my life's journey. For example: I love to collect rocks. I began well before I read Joshua and my NIV asked, "what's your memory stone?" I have rocks from my walks w/Max, from various restaurants who display them in their decor, rocks from vacations and various other places. Something about them speak to me. Just like trees, I don't collect them; but they somehow tell a story.
You probably already know that I collect Butterflies. I've heard that there is a museum in California and I have that on my life list.... I collect picture frames, candle holders and books. I collect photographs, inspirational messages and journals. I don't collect but have an interesting collection of lamps and side tables. It's really too funny considering I live alone. I must have about 15 or so lamps and 9 side tables, but that's an issue I'm working on w/my therapist (lol) Oh, I forgot, I also have a passion for dishes, "not fine china" but colorful plates, cups and bowls. But again, I'm not weird. Well anyway, this post was inspired by Columbo. He has a series of DVDs out and if you didn't know, he was the main reason I joined the Police Dept. I love him. He "was" the smartest detective I knew and he so intrigued my young naive mind way back when. I spent $137 on his first 4 collectibles. (and I don't even have any milk in the fridge-(lol)
I was up late last night watching the first series and I still get that same old feeling; wow, he's so smart. But knowing what I know now, I would have chosen another profession. Something more along the lines of my passions. It's still my goal and dream to open a little collectible store where all my little fetish items can be on display... See you at my "Grand Opening" (smile)
