Do you have any disappointments, which you are somehow ashamed of? This is one of mine. A Ganesh bronze sculpture, nothing very special, but very nice and original and I’ve liked it on the very first sight. (I admit I have some weakness for Ganeshas.)
I have bet on it on eBay, but my offer was not good enough, the minimum price has not been reached or so. It has not appeared on any auction anymore. I presume some real buyer, not a virtual one, has managed to purchase it, probably even paying less that I have offered.
I have had reminiscences of this missed opportunity quite a long time afterward. Should I have simply offered a generous sum immediately? Well, Ganesha punishes people who pretend to be too clever, doesn’t he?
