  1. Gosh, I’ll try to make this short. Not an easy task though, again having way too many thoughts in my mind. Life would be so much easier if I didn’t get so excited about things so easily.

    I read that article of yours a few days back, and though I did find your ideas interesting, didn’t really give them much thought back then. Until last night. Kinda found myself lying completely awake in bed, visioning a museum focusing in… Well, I even have a dozen ideas on what the museum should mainly focus in, let alone all the possible ways of realising such a concept… Way. Too many. Thoughts. Obviously didn’t sleep too well.

    I have this almost overwhelming urge of writing all the ideas circling in my head down here, but that would be just madness. When I get excited about something, there’s just no stopping me when I start to talk about it. But I think I’d rather let the ideas develop a bit, and maybe, say, share some of them with you at the Magic Circle for example. That is, if there’s a spare moment at some point.

    I think I’ll have to write at least some of the ideas down somewhere now. Not enough brain-capacity to handle them all. Especially when this definately isn’t the only thing I’m way too excited about, far from it actually. But I should focus in applying for summer jobs instead… Well, one can always try. (Though keeping this short didn’t work out that well either…)

  2. Hi — glad to hear if the text managed to inspire. =) Many of my short articles are based on lectures or presentations, and are therefore often like that, certain kinds of interventions or provocations, addressing certain audiences and hoping to make some small change in the ways people think or behave. All the best!
