Bee, leave me. Now!

Fine, sting me. I accept that it’ll hurt, but I’ll live and you’ll die. Unless I’m allergic. I don’t suppose that I am. But, uh, maybe let’s just … WHAT’S THAT OVER THERE?! (I’m making a beeline out of … ow!)

Thoughts, Tuesday, April 12th, 2022

Museums – do you ever read those tiny notecards next to each piece of art?

I don’t think a lot of people do.  That’s why they’re so lenient with the details, such as …

“Most likely.”


“Most Certainly.”

“Almost Certainly.”

“We Think.”

“Could have been.”

“Who knows?”

So vague. Who gets that job?

Interviewing a candidate for the museum artifact facts and/or guesses position …

“Can you just do a little research – not a lot – just a little – for all these things that we’re collecting for people to learn about?

Just get an idea of what each piece is about – don’t kill yourself over the particulars. Just make sure you’re in the ballpark with as many of the ‘facts’ as you can be – then fill in the rest with ‘we believe, we think, maybe, we’ve heard, could have happened, a friend told us, a friend of a friend told us, or whatever you feel sort of or could have maybe happened and in a misty time frame’ … you know, filler facts.”

People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.” ~ To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Love bites. Nah, but bees do.
