63/365 – ” What’s the one thing that matters about this moment? “

63/365 – ” What’s the one thing that matters about this moment? ”

Yesterday, I spent a couple of hours waltzing around the MET without a tour guide.

Next to every piece of art or collection of artifacts was a tiny little postcard with 3-4 lines of text summarizing one unique or interesting factoid about the work to help give it a tiny little bit more depth.

In most cases, that one carefully curated piece of information was able to make the display more relatable, more interesting, or more relevant.

Like the description section on an Instagram photo, a few strategically placed words have tremendous power.

It made me wonder: If moments of our lives were captured and framed in a museum, what descriptions might we choose to add? What is the one factoid that makes a situation interesting? What is the one lesson we learned from the day? What is the punchline that gives an underwise mundane moment meaning?
