"I watched sailboats go by all afternoon. Aiming my telescope out from the deck to the sea I could make out the names given to the boats: Teorema, Best Case Scenario, Giverny, Summer Wind, X ta Sea...

I thought: The distance from the chin to the shoulder when you are looking down to your left, or your right, is a classical distance. The years between Rembrandt's lion and Thurber's dog—a few lifetimes of drawing cats and dogs—lazy lifetimes. The distance between the telescope's primary mirror and the sailboats: perfect kilometers. My day dreams were pink and then green. The sun was shining, the waves were breaking, and I was painting."
