The Difference between YOUR STUFF and My Collections?
No! I don't plan to do an oral surgery specialty. This is just a required rotation! But the experience has been great! Next week I have EXAMS and then 3 weeks off! Most of the 3 weeks, I'll be in a study cubicle at WVU- CAMC Library in preparation of my next Boards.
At a dinner party last week, I heard the host couple (my friends)
arguing about their condo being to full of STUFF! His take was She has too many things, and of course she's certain he is a hoarder.
It started me thinking - whats the difference between STUFF and Collections?
Many BLENKO and West Virginia Glass Collectors have more than enough Glass, but we are always searching for one or two special items. Between studying for my oral surgery exam which is an oral exam in front of 3 residents and 2 attending physicians - however -the Stuff vs Collections
issue kept creeping back into my head.
My own answer was : Collections have LIFE! We can tell a story with each piece, I found this #12 at the Cabin Creek Estate of John Smith in 2002. Or whatever! STUFF is well JUST STUFF!
I'm interested in your answers! How do you define Collection vs Stuff? hjh
