Subject:This feels weird
Time:09:57 am
I just donated an item from my personal collection to a museum. That feels very strange-- it's like my tiny (and dwindling) collection of antique woodwinds actually has some sort of special historical value, rather than them being stuff I picked up mostly on Ebay.

I've been slowly selling off the collection, and I was trying to find information about this instrument so that I could get rid of it. I wandered through a bunch of the music museum's website looking for similar musettes, and I couldn't find anything that said they had any. It's an oddball instrument, but not that odd. "Hrmm. Hmmmmmmmm..." I took a few photos and fired off email to them offering to donate it to their collection. They said yes, so it's on its way.

Oh, that's very, very cool. While I believe we all do so in our own little way through our behaviour, you have left a physical legacy to the nation. That's a type of kindness that few people get to do.
