Museum: Place of the Muses

Our Museum houses mainly memories of those who have passed into the "place of the muses" where we hope and expect them to live on in words and images.

Lord, give each one of us our own death,
a dying that emerges from each life,
from the way we loved,
from meanings we made.
And from our needs.

For we are nothing but bark and leaf.
That great Death that each of us has within
is the fruit, around which all else turns.

____________Rainer Maria Rilke
