Either intentionally or accidentally.
Around Casa Silenus, there are displayed several collections I’ve amassed over the years. Since I proposed in front of the Buddha at the Huntington Library, the wife has started finding little Buddhas wherever we travel. We have a hot sauce collection that also started on our travels together. I still collect Mausers, and won’t be happy until I have an example from every country and every caliber ever issued. We also seem to be collecting cats lately, but that is strictly an accident.
So, what do you collect, and how did you get started?
