Fires of the Imagination

One the deepest aspects of stamp collecting is how is fires the imagination of young people in such a way that it makes them want to learn more about the world around them. You wont hear that tale from kids who play video games unless it's some curiosity of how a kid is Japan is playing the same video game.

One finds children exploring different cultures and countries to learn what makes them unique and why they issued their distinctive array of annual stamps. Stamps inspire kids to ask about Abraham Lincoln, famous battleships, shells from distant beautiful islands and space exploration.

You won't find these fires in any other pursuit. Stick with stamps and their questions will stick with you for a lifetime. I promise.
