I’m in a quandry…
Back home (as my online name suggests) I have a huge record collection which is worth a fair amount of money, I’m on my way back home on Tuesday for my first trip back in 2 years and it has become clear I could have a buyer for said record collection.
Now, this collection was my love, my passion… I spent hours mooching about in specialised record shops, record fairs, boot sales, warehouses, smoking copious amounts of cigs and “other” having (near) fistfights with Northern-English (and some from north of the border) gentlemen in my “I am a trainspotting-loner and have no girlfriend or SO” period… you get the general idea…
But now it has become something of an albatross around my neck… I live in Taiwan for the foreseeable future and its gathering dust waiting for my return. :s
My ol’ mucker TomHill suggests that to sell would be heresy as he says “that is your soul” and I agree to an extent… but will I ever go back there?
so many conflicting emotions… what do you guys think?.. should I be a man and throw away the shackles of my teenage/early20’s existence? or hold on to nostalgia for nostalgias sake?
any viewpoints appreciated
