The most amazing private collection you will see this year. Jay Walker’s library (courtesy of Wired magazine). Check out the design of the room.

What I like about it is – well I like everything about it actually – the theme of the collection that tells about the man, “What gets him excited are things that changed the way people think…”. Jay Walker collects steps in human understanding expressed in beautiful representations.

Between art, science and faith, humans are always seeking a higher reason, but the answer comes back to the question, and the questioner.

What is your collection about? Do you have one? What does it say about you?

    Movies, books, music, digital photos, web links. Lists of places where to have coffee, ice-cream, pizza, sushi. Quirky people. But I don’t hold on to any of them zealously, so maybe they aren’t really collections. More like pleasures in flux.

    Oh, Evecho, I’m happy. We finally have a well stocked fridge. And Esmeralda is making me veggie burgers right now. And we even have some creamy Irish beer.

    What do you collect?

    A well stocked fridge/pantry is right up there on my list for a happy household 🙂
    I hope you and Esmeralda are having fun.

    Tangible collections … hmm I have a Xena: Warrior Princess collection, a lesbian anthology collection, a collection of pig figurines that visitors add to, and a boxful of caps and hats from places I’ve visited.

    These days I mostly collect articles of interest while web surfing.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
