Today, I was reading a book for my literature class titled, Ways of Seeing by John Berger. Whenever I read a book, I never can really focus, and I always get distracted. On this page, there is a paragraph that is talking about a painting that says, “Now it hangs in a room by itself. The room is like a chapel. The drawing is behind a bullet-proof perspex” (Berger 23). This part was what got me distracted, and I started to think about history. I started to think about how weird it is that people like looking at paintings and drawings that were made years and centuries ago and how people treat art with care and basically like royalty. I also started to think about museums and how they are filled with things from the past. This reminded me of how Professor Blum was saying that we are haunted by history, which we are! I think it is really funny that we are surrounded by so much history that we do not really notice until we actually stop and think about it.
