The abjuration of my past, by Peter Capaldi

August 8th, 2013 (12:38 am)

Peter Capaldi's 'Letter to My Younger Self', at The Big Issue:

I destroyed all my geek stuff because I didn’t want to be a geek, and I regret it to this day. Consumed in the geek bonfire of the vanities was a collection of autographs and letters from Peter Cushing, Spike Milligan, Frankie Howerd, the first Doctor Whos, actual astronauts and many more.

This puts my hoardingcollecting in context, though there's a lot elsewhere in the Capaldi piece which inspired reflection.
