Day 50 – A Question of Why
I am still trying to think of a simple answer to the question of why I wear bow ties. The simple answer is that I am human with all the follies and foibles that come with that. So I wear bow ties to express being human in my own way.
I enjoy being a little formal. Perhaps that makes me antiquated, perhaps hip in some post-modern way. But mostly, it makes me human to express myself. Bow ties permit me to wear colors that I would not otherwise do. They are off-beat but not too strange. Mostly people tell me that they like them, so that speaks to my vanity.
Maybe there is no simple answer, where the bow ties are a sign that signify a multilayer belief in both the past and future.
