America’s Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, Just a short walk from the White House, has had its up’s and down’s over the years since opening in 1846.
The Smithsonian’s Washington complex of nineteen museums, nine research centers, and a zoo, has been enjoying a recent renaissance of reorganization and a welcome if belated introduction into the digital age.

cross my heart I hope to die,
that's so weird.
you're growing up and your heart dies,
and the most of us doesn't care about it.
the matters that normally drives your normal life through the roads of your brain
just becoming something something new, something that can also scare you
and then you found yourself smiling alone in the corner of a bar, kinda drunk.
Things are because we see them, and what we see, and how we see it, depends on the Arts that have influenced us.
To look at a thing is very different from seeing a thing. One does not see anything until one sees its beauty.
Then, and then only, does it come into existence.
At present, people see fogs, not because there are fogs, but because poets and painters have taught them the mysterious loveliness of such effects. There may have been fogs for centuries in London. I dare say there were.
