I realized that the thing I collect more than anything these days are links. I have a Facebook page where I just post links about art and other things I find interesting. The underlying collecting here seems to be the collection of stories. Each link contains information on a topic. I make it a point to read/review each link before I 'share' it on my facebook page. I have allowed my students to 'like' my page in the hopes that they will also link some of the same news items or artists that I post on my page. I never thought about it before, but would I collect these links if I knew no one was looking? I only have 20 'likes' for my page, so it's likely that only about two people are actually looking at the things I post. I think I do it for me, as a way of keeping memory and tracking interesting items. I think I like being able to refer back to these stories and images. As a whole my facebook page looks like a quilt of images and words that reflects my interests for the last few months.
