'There is a lot of stuff in the world', Mr Nielson said sagely.
Thus encouraged, he went on, warming to the subject, (as he is wont to do), and soon we were having a perfectly, lovely chat about the material world as we know it.
Mr Nielson recognises, that the more people become caught up in the desire for more and more things, (or stuff as Mr Nielson like to call it,) the emptier they feel.
Mr Nielson calls this 'stuffology'; a modern day ailment, with only the most meta-physical of cures.
Of course, Mr Nielson does not complain when said 'stuffologists', come into his store, looking to add a few pretty jewels to their collection!
Any girl worth her salt, knows how to collect a thing or two, for goodness sake! My own malady, finds its fullest expression in the stuff of art and books, one of the most chronic forms of the condition!
There is a lovely joy, in finding beauty in a collection of special things, that each add to the whole.
And there is something quite magical, in the way in which grouping things together, can create an order, and form that would otherwise be absent.
Even Mr Nielson knows, that sometimes more is MORE!
