History Bear

Today little bear went and took a look at the British Museum. Or should that be The British Museum! This is the place that has history oozing out of its pores. Ancient history, modern history, medieval history, dark ages history, Roman history, recent history. Little bear was a bit overwhelmed by it. After all, there are only so many statues that one can see in a day before one goes into statues overload. Or artifacts. Or whatever it is. Mind you, this is the only musuem little bear visited on this trip so... he needed to make the most of it. There were all sorts of other things that might have been more interesting... like the Tate Gallery, or the Albert & Victoria Museum or that Natural History Museum (with dinosaurs!).

But like us, little bear learned that you can't do everything all at once. There are some things that come in life and you can grab them and other things that you can't grab. Time is tight and little bear had to make a choice. Good for little bear! Sometimes we can get caught in not making the choice, or dithering about the choice, or regretting the choice. But he's glad that he made a choice... and saw what he saw. He has a better understanding of Emperor Hadrian!
