Receiving Gifts #2
On the other hand, if they went to Zengna for that tie, we follow a different strategy. Effusion is in order. We follow William Blake's dictum:"Nothing succeeds like excess." Take every opportunity to wear it in their presence, and comment how much you enjoy it, how close to them you feel when doing so.
You will make them very happy about their sagacity in gifting, and may just get yourself something from Zengna next year.
The author of this blog lives in a wonderful apartment in one of Boston's most pleasant streets. It happened by accident. He is very happy. He reminds you that we are responsible for creating the world we want to live in, that happiness is something we do, not something we find, and that for the creatively willful, believing is seeing.
He enjoys epigrams, only listens to live music, asks how old babies are and plays with dogs. Other peoples babies, and other peoples dogs.
He considers his blog to be a work of fiction; "fictionalize it, said the mad genius," but assures you that every word is true! It's rather like life, he supposes.
