Who currently has other coin collectors in their family?
Today is Father's Day. A day for me( and many of you). We decided to celebrate by going to a local restaurant, its ceiling adorned with a captivating dark blue hue that sloped upwards. As I gazed up, I couldn't help but notice the patterns of mirrored circles within rectangles and squares, resembling a mesmerizing display of a blue-hued fantastical coin show, perhaps from a dream.
Lost in my thoughts, I suddenly snapped back to reality, realizing that my daughters and wife were engrossed in a conversation about photographs from one of their weddings. It reminded me then, in that moment, that no one in my family is a coin collector.
There are no children, no living aunts, uncles, or nephews to discuss my collecting dreams and schemes. (I can still work on my elementary school grand-nephews)
On this Father's Day, as I reflect upon the absence of collectors in my own family, I wonder if you have collectors in your own families.
I still feel very blessed.
