Time

This life is fleeting, more than once this year I have been made painfully aware of time passing us by. 

The ever growing pressure to “live the moment” pushing us on to achievements, filling all time, constantly going onward, always moving, doing experiencing, more adventures, on, on, on.  Sometimes we need and should take the time to experience and to simply be.  To be thankful.    

There is so much to be thankful for, and yet in the moment I am simply grateful for the gift of aging.  The priceless privilege of growing older.

Venom

We’re off to one of my favorite places, The Natural History Museum!  This time we are going to see the new Venom exhibition.

First of all, book tickets, the queue is something else entirely.  The size of it would strike fear in to the heart of even the most dedicated museum lover.  Luckily we have booked tickets, so with rather smug smiles we sidle past the massive line and straight in.

The exhibition, is beautifully put together, with lots of information and specimens as well as real life survival stories.  We spend a wonderfully morbid hour and a half perusing the fangs and barbs of snakes, jellyfish, spiders and all sorts of insects.

Get in before it closes, if you are a member it is free!
