Even if you collect all the movies in the Criterion Collection or read all the The New York Review of Books sold today or analyze the point of Bisaya Short Films the way David Foster Wallace does, you still hope that these present passions may lead to future antiques and treasures. That is how Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest all started – the pursuit of passions.

You don’t even have to be a famous painter to take part in the business of generating growth of worth for your possessions.

They become antiques and treasures of tomorrow, all ready to enlighten the next generation into what’s about to dawn on them in a several series of winters.
