A day of discovery


©Roger Bultot

It was a day they had taken off work, one of the few they could ‘steal’ during this period. They decided to spend it productively: visiting a museum. She was convinced that no one could change their future or better manage their present if they could not understand where they had come from and what had happened in the past. “We have a rich history and it is worth exploring”. He was persuaded.

The day turned out to be a discovery of things he never even knew existed. And that was more than enough to change his entire life perspective.

  1. We need to learn from and treasure the past. Sad that so few of us do.

  2. Nicely done.


  3. Your argument in favour of museums and understanding the past is very persuasive, the more so as your male character finds the experience so enriching and life-changing. Being irredeemably romantic, I hope it means that he realised what a gem she was and married her, and they both lived happily ever after!

  5. Dear MC,

    Lovely slice of life story. There’s nothing like a day at the museum to remind us of history. Nicely done.

  7. Whilst many museums can be dull, they are a valuable resource when it comes to learning about our past – something even electronic gadgets can’t replace!

  9. I think it is the reason a lot of people go to museums. How can you for forward if you don’t know where you have been.
