my feel-good habit was kind of weird for a kid my age in the day that i grew up. i'd go to flea markets and antiques shops to collect stuff. one of my favorites was 78 rpm records. i had found an old wind-up gramophone and it was lots of fun - not hi-tech at all! that was part of its charm - seemed really ancient to me. i loved finding the classics from the swing era and earlier - glenn miller, ink spots, etc. the records were cheap and easily enough found - but the really good ones more hard to find so that it was a bit of a challenge. i had a friend who shared this quirk and we could go on hunting expeditions together.
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself... And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." - Paulo Coelho
