Books! I collect books. I also hide in my heart the stories told by friends and strangers. I hide away sunrises. I just love seeing each new dawn set fire to the eastern mountains. The coastal wind as it first howls and then whispers through the trees seems like an old friend. I collect the sight, scent, and sound of the Pacific at rest and in heaving fury. Finally, I collect good memories - a child's smile, the laughter of an old woman, the work-worn hands of an old man, the tender touch of a mother, shore birds dancing at the edge of the tide, a shaft of sunlight making a cathedral in the middle of a dim forrest, and the smell of snow. When my world seems dreary I bring out these memory treasures as one might open a deep blue velvet bag of jewels. I shift them through my fingers and am comforted.

Watches !!!
I have 3 watches and wear either my 2d or 3rd daily

- an H-hour orange-faced Hermes I bought almost 15 years ago; need to clean the band and get a new battery. (The batteries seem to wear super fast so I never wear it - the band also discolors super fast because of sweat or lotions) It's this exact one, I will keep it and get it refurbished again but would not recommend it.

- this Hublot. It's solid, classic, and slightly unusual. I love it.

It's IMO incredibly stylish and it's $13 now!!!!!!. I paid around $5 more.

for women, a watch is often just another possibility in jewelry; for men, it's jewelry (the only one accorded us) and a tiny automobile strapped to him wrists like http://jonsguide.org/best-top-breitling-bentley-watches-reviews/ : 0-60 in 5 seconds. It's jewelry that mechanically moves, marriage of form and function, and serves to remind us we'd be ok without wives--a back-up marriange, as it were . Gas mileage ain't bad either...
