In A Sentimental Mood

What do you do when you receive a gift that is not your style?

Do you accept it willingly into your life and let it gently yet persistently peck away at the vision you had for your living space?

It sits there like an incontinent puppy, innocent and sweet-tempered but soiling your floor.

I suppose we are collections and reflections of the people around us, so maybe our bookshelves, cabinets, closets, walls and drawers should proudly display that diversity.

These knick-knack sentiments create a mosaic of good intentions that glitters with the graceless charm and generous humanity that our life has provoked.

And just as life does not always turn out exactly as planned, neither does our living room.
