Spools of Questions

"When you examine the lives of the most influential
people who have ever walked among us,
you discover one thread that winds through them all.
They have been aligned first with their spiritual nature
and then only with their physical selves."
-Albert Einstien

I always have an affection for little baggies of wooden spools of thread.  This is my latest pile of favorites!  I always wonder what makes a person find certain objects to be appealing?  Why when you see them you get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside?  What stories could these threads tell?  What items did they pull together?  When did the owner sit and use these threads?  Why would the owner save the empty ones with the full ones?  Many, many questions......many, many thoughts...very few answers....just more questions.
