  1. I had someone ask me what patina was the other day. It is amazing how we can know exactly what a word means, but really struggle to verbalize a definition.

  2. That all depends on what ‘it’ is and what kind of polishing is to be done to it – the devil is in the details (or in this case, the value is in the details – if you believe that money, itself, is the root of evil, it is the same thing).
