Old is Awesome
I love old things. I have a weakness for antiques, the older and uglier the better. I love old clothes, used and worn furniture, vintage luggage. Sometimes, I browse antiques on KSL for fun, even though I can't afford any of them. Old things have a history, a previosity (new word I'm making up-curiosity about what came previously) about them. Tattered ancient books that have been held and read and passes around for generations make me weak at the knees. Old things show progression, they show a value and substance to simplicity. It's like receiving insight to someone else's life. A moment of a different time captured in scuffs and nicks and dents. In the end, old is awesome.
