It was Thurs evening and I was walking down the street. She was walking in the opposite direction. Initially our eyes met whilst we were standing at the traffic light. And we crossed the road, she looked back and I looked back, and our eyes again!
I had to go back and talk to her. I told her: “our eyes met twice and that is a good thing! Who are you?” “I am Marina!”
I proceeded as thus follows: “I must tell you a story. It will illustrate why I am talking with you. It will only take a 20 seconds.
I remember when I was young, and I was at a tram stop and there was a girl standing across from me and she was wearing black trousers and white blouse, and she was one of the most beautiful females I’ve ever seen. At some point, our eyes met, back then, I was shy, so when she would look at me I would look away, and when I would look at her, she’d look down on her right, and so on.
My tram came and I left. For many months I could recall her! And it was then that I made a conscious decision to talk to a female if our eyes meet.
Aspiring authors should follow the advice of the greats: keep a notepad by your bed, read voraciously and write even more so. But one nugget of wisdom may have been missing over the decades: don’t write blogs.
It takes three days to write a concise and great essay/article/post. As a blogger, you don’t have three days. You just want to put the info out there.
Finns are visual folks. They like to see things more than feeling. They are not oral people. If they want to know the behaviours, beliefs, likes, dislikes, hopes, dreams, fears, opinions and sexual habits of their next door neighbours, then they must read in the polls and surveys.
Polls are big business in this country.
Therefore, a great deal of their decisions is based on image. If you want to get a good result from a Finn (in business or personal), you must help him/her by wearing colourful clothes.
This explains why the majority of Finns wear bright colours: green, orange, yellow, purple, redand so on.
