I get made fun of sometimes for spending too much time adding little details to a project or a present. But, man, I think they count.
This week has been proof (for me, at least).
I received gifts inside a gift from two people:
Jim Bianco and TOMS
TOMS shoes now come with a handwritten letter from the owner (okay, it's printed, but it looks handwritten -- and not in the overly cheezy way) and a bracelet. Jim Bianco not only sent his CD, but magnetic poetry, a button and a postcard.
Maybe it's getting harder for musicians to break the mold, get people's attention. Maybe that's unfortunate. But I'll take gifts!
