The other day, when I was at the museum with my dad, I kept thinking how did people have the time to do so many beautiful things? Thinking of all the tapestries, hand made stuff and what-not. I thought, that’s right, they did not have internet. I think of all the wonderful things I could create if I was not busy liking pictures on Instagram and indulging in Netflix.
What will our generations have to show? Thinking about a museum for our generation, it will either be online or in a physical space full of touchscreens. Don’t get me wrong, it has the potential to be pretty cool. I already have a few ideas for whoever wants to design it, give me a call. But seriously, how can we top what has been left before us?
I wonder if past generations thought that their creations were not museum worthy. I wonder if it’s only time that makes them amazing.
“Oh hey, here’s this tapestry I just made*”.
“Oh hey, here’s this tapestry my great, great, great, great grandmother made back in 2013”.
“Oh wow, that’s truly fascinating”.
* For the record, I don’t make tapestries.
Also, I do believe that we have a lot to show, don’t get me wrong. It’s just we have different things to show and I can’t help but wonder about it.
Peace, Love & Diet Coke.
