Unsubstantiated Estimates

Unlike shares or stocks that are fungible, individual works of art are both distinctive and unique in medium, size, composition, quality and salability . The application of an across the board opinion to works of art by nature ignores the uniqueness of works of art, and is therefore inappropriate. At best, opinions should be tiered and salability alone by hotly demanded artist would have ruled out the fair market value compounded by unsubstantiated estimates set by irresponsible auction houses.




beyond our control

“You can stop a bird from perching on your shoulder but you can’t stop a bird from flying over your head” – Confucius
There are situations in life which is within your grasp that you yourself can resolve or put a stop to but not all. Certain situations are beyond our control . That’s what it means.




delusion and blindness

There comes a time in your life where you can see things a lot of people cannot see and derive conclusions that people cannot arrive at. It’s called delusion. There also comes a time in your life where you can’t see things a lot of people can see and you cannot derive conclusions that people can easily arrive at. It’s called blindness.




Disrespectful Pig

The wife came home early and found her husband in their bedroom making love to a very attractive young woman and was somewhat upset

“You are a disrespectful pig!” she cried.

How dare you do this to me -a faithful wife, mother of your children!

I am leaving you.

I want a divorce straight away!”

And the husband replied “Hang on just a minute Love, so at least I can tell you what happened.”

“Fine, go ahead,” she sobbed, “but they’ll be the last words you’ll ever say to me!!

And the husband began -” Well I was getting into the car to drive home and this young lady here asked me for a lift.

She looked so down and out and so defenseless that I took pity on her and let her into the car.

I noticed that she was thin, poorly dressed and dirty.

She told me that she hadn’t eaten for three days!

So, in my compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the chicken curry I made for you last night, which you wouldn’t eat because you are afraid you’ll put on weight.

The poor thing devoured them in seconds.

Since she needed a good clean up I suggested a shower, and while she was doing that I noticed that her clothes were dirty and full of holes, so I threw them away.

Then, as she needed clothes, I gave her the designer jeans that you have had for a few years, but don’t use because you say they are too tight.

I also gave her the underwear that was your Anniversary present, which you don’t use because I don’t have good taste.

I went and found the sexy blouse my sister gave you for Christmas, which you don’t wear just to annoy her, and I also donated the boots you bought at that expensive boutique and don’t use because someone in your office has the same pair”

The husband took a deep breath and continued- “She was so grateful for my understanding and help and as I walked her to the door she turned to me with tears in her eyes and said, “Please, do you have anything else that your wife DOESN’T USE?”
