TRAVELING MYSTERY MUSEUM

MICHAEL C. MCMILLEN’s  TIME TRAVELING CARAVAN

Could we also call it a TIME MUSEUM ?

Time is the invisible wizard bringing change, an invisible witch maybe, energy that doesn’t have a body on her own, and shows her passage in a fading curtain, as well as in rotten teeth and crumbling rocks.

As she comes and does her job on leaves and objects, causing effects we see and touch, we are dragged by lady time as if she were a comet, and us her tail.

Thoughts and dreams and instant perceptions fly in the cosmic dust confusing whom with what, mistaking present for past. Thoughts and dreams and instant perceptions are the scent of our lives.

Time is just a word. Join Michael and me in the tail of the comet.  (Rosanna Albertini)

The mouse mummy in Hannah The Fortune Telling Mouse was given to the artist by a neighbor, Kenneth Strickfaden, when he was eleven years old. Strickfaden was the inventor/creator of the electrical apparatus in the original 1932 Frankenstein movie and countless science fiction movies that were to follow.
