Horoscope

"Fighting ideas is like fighting  clouds, You can punch and kick, but what difference will it make? The way to impact the world today is by tackling the intangible items."

That was my horoscope for today. I find it rather profound. And makes a lot of sense. We spend sometimes too much time focusing on the wrong things leaving us frustrated and discouraged when we should be working on things we can do and change.

I’m processing this whole affair. My gut isn’t OK with what happened, but I am torn by it. I believe in freedom of the press. Yet as a professional, I understand the need to know if the media is visiting my organization.  

As a museum guest, can’t I take photos without escort? My photos end up in the public domain: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and Flickr.  We are all now citizen journalists. So do I need an escort next time I go to the Smithsonian? 

Maybe a mindset adjustment is needed for all of us in the field? I don’t know. I really don’t know the answer.
