I love them. They feed my soul.
I know most are open, but the hassle of travelling, the social distancing, lack of spontaneity and all the other Covid paraphernalia make it way too stressful, taking away my joy.
I’m studying Art History – my third diploma in 18 months – so it’s a wrench. Although online exhibitions are a timely substitute, the experience of standing in front of an artwork you admire and bathing in its glory is hard to do via a screen..
In the scheme of things, it’s not the end of the world. There are far more important things to concern ourselves with. I’m pretty much a glass half full person, so I’ll definitely find my joy elsewhere.
I’m just saying I miss it.
