Lots of profound truth there. One thing I fortunately know about myself is that I am happiest when I have just enough. Too little, and I'm lusting for that next thing I believe I need. Too much, and I experience a form of paralysis... which Strat do I play today/tonight? Which amp do I use? Which three drive pedals? Which two delays? I currently have 4 instruments (2 Strats, acoustic and a bass), two amps and six pedals. That makes me very happy. But I'm not immune to wondering if that 7th pedal might unlock some magic potential in me. I hate white elephants. Nothing causes me more consternation than owning something that I haven't bonded with and that I cannot sell.
