I've still been puzzling over exactly over a definition of a museum and am rather coming to the conclusion that so many museums try to be all things to all men (and women) that they forget one rather important thing - the objects.  However, I have to say that my visit the V&A reassured me that there are still places you can go where you can look at things. And again (however) I still don't that that great museum as an educational or an aesthetic environment. I don't want to use that word 'institution' because that's  a word with far too loaded a meaning.

On another note (literally) my arrangement of Grieg's Holberg Suite for flute choir is nearly finished and should be online soon.
