Collecting Is Not Creating

A while back I had over 500 CDs and 250 books. Proudly displayed on shelves like badges or trophies, they defined me more than anything else.

These days I have no CDs (maybe 10 albums at a time on my iPod) and about 25 books.

How I define myself now is far more about the art I make.

In reducing the collecting, we make space for more creating.

And the ultimate creation for any of us is who we are and what we make with it.
