Obviously the two major events in my life this year (the new book and the new gig at Christie’s) got the most attention. Although I have less time than before to dedicate to this blog, I do my utmost best to keep it as alive as possible. I am very happy to notice it is still going strong – on average the site now has about 500 daily visitors! This is in fact the 500th post. Thank you for your continued interest and company. It means a great deal to me.
