In the Eye of the Beholder
"We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality."
- Iris Murdoch, author/ philosopher (1919-1999)
I love antiques and the thrill and competition of getting them at auctions. In my life, I have gone to hundreds of auctions and have found wonderful pieces, from beautiful 19th century china to decorative art pieces from the 20th century. Not only am I fascinated by the prospect of the pieces I may find, I am always in awe of the psychology and buying patterns at work among my fellow bidders.
