If less is more, is more less?

Take my music collection for instance. There was a time when I only had a few dozen albums. I was intimately familiar with each of them. I played them over and over until they became like old friends. Every now and then I’ll revisit one of them and reminisce about old times. These days I have literally thousands of albums. Some I’ve barely listened to. Others I know well but the relationship isn’t the same.

It’s a little bit like the difference between new friends and old.

I suppose less really is more.
