Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.
- Sir Joshua Reynolds
We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.

    Candy-eyed, I checked on the address on the envelope and the newspaper that Philippe was reading.
    Acquigny, Eure, a commune in the administrative division of France, #27 D├ępartement.
    Le Figaro, the oldest national paper dating since 1826, with a long history of up and downs. My Dad used to read Emile Zola books, who wrote for the paper.
