This collection belongs to my very musical roommate.
Here are from bottom to top, the first violin I owned, my first ukulele (beautiful sparkly pink), my mother’s mandolin and the kala uke I play now.
This is my last day posting on Four for the Day and I just wanted to express to everyone that it has been lovely conjuring up mini collections for your pleasure. If you enjoyed my corner of the Earth, please check out my website, blog, and flickr. Namaste to all!!
I have a budding collection of different types of spoons. Here’s a small assortment.

Ultimately, I like that these four represent vision dependent upon direction. The binoculars magnify. The mirror lends hindsight. The peripheral telescope affords sideways vision. The pen observes from all directions, sometimes simultaneously.
For me, tools of observation are collectibles because of what they aspire to. They attempt to diminish blindspots. To see that little bit more, to bring things that little bit closer, thus understand that much better.
