...e nessuno se ne accorse mai. Mi piace il lato oscuro nascosto dietro alle apparenze piú superficiali. Mi piace scoprire l'abisso di bellezza, fragilitá e inquietudine celato da un sorriso rubato o uno sguardo furtivo.

a land not mine

A land not mine, still
forever memorable,
the waters of its ocean
chill and fresh.

Sand on the bottom whiter than chalk,
and the air drunk, like wine,
late sun lays bare
the rosy limbs of the pine trees.

Sunset in the ethereal waves:
I cannot tell if the day
is ending, or the world, or if
the secret of secrets is inside me again.

— Anna Ahkmatova

Walton: I realized there were a lot of art buyers out there who were looking for naïve sellers who didn't know the value of what they had.

My description of the Diebenkorn painting was just a complete fable to make me look like a hapless everyman rube who found this painting in his garage, didn't know it's by Diebenkorn and puts it up and there's these letters in the corner but he doesn't know to mention and they just happen to appear in the corner of one of the photographs.
