Now I’m working in a museum in the middle of the country (volunteering). Do I know enough now to write, “Today he worked at the museum, a quiet museum that was often empty”? Or, now that I am working at a museum, will it become too difficult to refer to museums, will museums come to occupy a place of special importance and personal significance, as well as becoming banal and unimpressive, as all things do, when they become routine? Will I no longer be able to write about museums, at least quiet museums, until many years have passed and my life has changed and the time I worked at a museum passed into fiction? (Or into a kind of fiction?)
