Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once. ~ Audrey Hepburn

so here is a brilliant idea. museum weekend! a weekend in the netherlands where majority of the museums here open either for free or give discounts to visit all the cool stuff inside. how awesome is that? they actually make an effort to get people to come an appreciate their art, history, culture, literature… all the stuff that enriches life.

oh yes, i know this lot of you out there who really cannot appreciate simply looking about other people’s collection of stuff and mostly old stuff at that. and i also know a few musuems that i have been to that really function as nothing more than glorified dust collectors. oh i am not ust looking at you, museum di tanah air ku yang tercinta, there are loads of other museums that are guilty of this.

but sometimes, you do find museums that are passionate about their collections and showcases them with pride. they take a long time to select and preserve their pieces and make a real effort to tell the story about them. and oh what a joy to find these places!
