Too Much Treasure Vertigo, the Spoiled #Collection Syndrome

Imagine you collect pictures of daisies. You have a folder full of 214 pictures. One day you find a Russian botanical forum on the Internet. There’s a thread : DAISIES (Ромашки). So you plunge, you find a page full of treasures. You collect pictures, you need twenty minutes to grab them all. Then, at the bottom of the page, you see there are 847 mores pages in the thread. BIM! So there!

Too Much Treasure Vertigo

You collect French stamps, year by year, you trade, you dig, you travel. But suddenly your French uncle, about to die, sends you a cardboard box. All his collections of… French stamps. BIM! You have, suddenly, everything. Hell!

Too Much Treasure Vertigo

What does this imply? That, like in the old oriental quotes, the journey is more important than the destination? What is collecting, then? A way to keep ourselves busy? What is desire? What is “to wait” when it’s linked to desire? What’s happening when it’s fulfilled? Another desire? What about another collection, then?

Thanks for reading!
