Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread - Proverbs 30:8

to collect or not to collect
that is the question for minimalists

most would say collect memories not
 things, but I would say collect 
and keep what brings you joy

mostly I use my camera to collect
memories, stories and moments of beauty

linking up with Six Word Fridays


  1. I asked a friend's husband once what she collected cause I was looking for gift ideas. He looked at me and said, "She collects people" answer I'll always remember. My husband and I are "accidental" minimalists. Lots of moves and not so much disposable income have always led us to keep our stuff to a minimum. As we've gotten older, we have thoroughly embraced this way of living. My sentimental side keeps me attached to some special you said, those things that bring me joy! LOVE this!

  2. I do too, and I totally agree with your idea! Lovely picture too!

  3. i collect the weirdest things, like sea glass and shells. i save the fortunes from my fortune cookies. i date them and keep them in a champagne glass. i think i collect memories, that what it feels like. when i donated my childrens toys, i took pictures of them, then put the pictures in a book. i felt like it was a good way to hold on to the memories.

    i do collect what brings me joy!!!!

  4. I've never thought as a camera as a means of collecting. Wow. Great insight.

  5. I like your take on "Collect"
