I hope you all are doing well, and can enjoy some slow moments in life 💜
I made a recording of my recent visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. I also managed to squeeze a short tour of the Natural History Museum.
I hope this video will bring you a small piece of London, some joy, and gentle moment of calmness.
If you are interested in art and literature, I would highly recommend you a book called A Month in Siena by the British – Libyan writer, Hisham Matar.
My visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum made me reflect on the meaning of art, culture, as well as religion and spirituality and their convection to our life.
As I walked down the corridors of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Hisham Matar’s book came back to me in my thoughts.
A Month in Siena is a recollection of Matar’s one month spent in Siena visiting museums every day to look at the paintings from the Sienese Painting School (from the period between 13th and 15th century). Art in the book constitutes a refuge for one’s emotions and the way one can connect with the world. This book is incredibly soul soothing for the reader and provides readers with feelings of calmness.
If you are coming to London, I highly recommend you a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum and Natural History Museum as well as A Month in Siena by Hisham Matar.
Sending you a lot of hugs wherever you are.
