Way before the Internet, the French writer Andre Malraux talked about “the Imaginary Museum”. Each of us carry a museum within us, a sacred portable reliquary. Right now, the museums are closed. Our frames are empty. Our sacred collections have been stolen by doubt, fear, anxiety, violence, death and injustice. This is an existential challenge. The escape from all the depression, doubt and pain these past month brought to our doorsteps is through finding something that brings meaning to our existence: creating our own internal museums and fill them with truth, love, beauty and joy.
