everything is Amazing and no one is Happy

wed.dec.29.2010
 
a woman who owned a parisian flat left for the south of france before WWII. never to return, but paid rent until her death at 91 this year. everything had been left untouched for over half a century.
her possessions under the high wooden ceilings. amid the old wooden stove and a stone sink in the kitchen the dust and cobwebs kissed treasures such as a stuffed ostrich, a Mickey Mouse toy dating from before the war, love letters tied with ribbon, and a woman in a pink muslin evening dress - the painting was by Boldini and the subject was the owner's grandmother, Boldini's muse. it fetched 2.1 million, a world record for the artist.

"I sat at the typewriter for the first time and fell in love with the words that emerged like drops, one by one... every drop became something that if spoken would have flown away, but on the sheets as words, became solidified, whether they were good or bad."
