So perhaps the secrets contained by this desk are less important to word affairs than Russia’s movements in 1939, but since I’m not on the world stage, I’ll take any intrigue I can find.
This desk has a large stack of proofs from So Scottsdale magazine from a fashion shoot done a couple of years ago. The shoot features an attractive, lithe 30-something woman wearing the kind of odd Navajo-inspired prints that you might find at an overpriced restaurant in Santa Fe. That this kind of article is in a fashion magazine doesn’t surprise me. What does is why are the proofs on this desk (the occupant wasn’t the photographer, and the subject did not live here)? And why were they deemed important enough to hold on to for years, but not necessary enough to make the move? I found no additional clues amid the refuse to suggest a connection between the two. Like most of the strange details I come across in my line of work, I guess I’ll never know what it all means.
