i was (who'm i kidding, make that am) considering a new necklace but then i consider that i have a favorite heavy glass bead necklace that gets more wear than any of my other 3 necklaces. if i have one that i love, why would i get another? it's not the cost that stops me, just an interest in self-editing/censoring. stuff can pile up without my even noticing it, so i'm trying to notice. i could love the new necklace for a week, a month or a few years, and then it's over. (or not - but there is no way to know for sure, and the fact of the matter is, i have a necklace that is perfect. why buy another.)
my explanation for multiples in the past has been lust/love/greed/"need" and/or lack of imagination.
how do you distinguish between a reasonable amount and too much?
