I used to be pretty much obsessed with fountain pens and inks. I still do know quite a lot about them - every obsession I have, I learn the details of. Nowadays I appreciate that they are nice to write with but I don't care about owning more than a couple.

I am currently in what I gauge to be the tail end of a camera obsession - I own an awful lot of (film) cameras, and occasionally I buy more. I am starting to appreciate that they are nice to take pictures with but I don't care about owning more than a couple.

In both cases, the "collecting" urge has been the main thing, in retrospect. I'm obsessed with obsessions. I collect collections. And I don't quite know what is next. Can I develop a meta-obsession about meta-obsessions? Will that appropriately fill my life before I die?
