Fred, thanks for this! I also think that collecting provides a person with an "instant" group of like-minded people to associate with, a tribe of sorts. Not sure if this is a good generalization- maybe there are a lot more reclusive collectors than I imagine.

I have collected many different things over my lifetime, and I stopped thinking my collecting habit was strange when I heard about the people who collect antique barbed wire.
