Hi everyone. I was first introduced to Lego in the early 70s as a young child. I remember having some great sets, including most of the original Space stuff. Unfortunately, I stopped collecting/playing with Lego when I hit 13 or so. My mom sold all my stuff when I left for college. That was my dark period with no Lego and no interest.
I started collecting again in college in the early 90s. It was the Western theme that drew me back in. It's been a bit up a down since, with a prolonged grey period when I was married. It wasn't so much a lack of interest than a lack of funds/time. Four kids will do that to you. My ex wanted out in 2011 and I threw myself back into my collection. Thank God I had it! I found peace and satisfaction through Lego that I was sorely lacking in my life at the time. I'm in a much better place now and have fully embraced my love for Lego.
My main focus these days is City/Town. I'll buy other themes if I see a way to make them work in my city. The only bad thing is that I live in an apartment and just don't have a lot of room. Most of my collection sits in boxes. One day I will have enough space to put my vision together. Til then, I'm building modular landscapes and buying used parts to make older sets that aren't available anymore.
