A life sized cabinet of curiosities…
Its heavy air still seizes my nostalgic nose from my very first footstep inside. Its stuffed creatures still monitor me from every corner and kink of the room.
My feet must have contributed to the eroded curves of its stone entrance steps. My instinctive untamed child fingerprints will have joined many along its endless glass cupboards of oddities. My neck still cranes to take in the skeletal giants, as was required when I was two foot nothing.
An archaic collection that repeatedly takes centre stage across my own historical timeline.

I was fascinated by dinosaurs as a child! But I never got to see them at a museum… Maybe I’ll get another chance now that I have children
You should! I still find it as magical now as ever.
