Of Love And Fans

Last sunday I went to the science museum NEMO with my son (8), where he attended a children’s lecture on satellites. A very interesting subject, and since it was my first visit to the museum, I had a look around to see what else was going on.

Some really fascinating stuff is on display: From space to the origins of life, about rocks, water and energy, to potential energy locked up in a chain reaction on hold. Yes, when everything stands still and nothing happens, we can still speak of energy, but it is potential energy 😉 Also we and our bodies are examined closely.

On a tiny screen I noticed this animation, on how we have always wondered.

And falling in love. One of life’s mysteries (image NEMO)

Two kissing faces are representing one of life’s mysteries: Love. Is it the beginning of it all, or is it the goal? Spark or final? It’s definitely a fascinating subject for any visitor, and on the top floor, beyond the enormous neon sign ‘AM I MY HORMONES?’, we are all invited to learn more about our likes and dislikes. About the nature of us.

Cycling home after that, I noticed this tiny piece of spray art, showing the smiling face of Michael Jackson… who did a lovely song on the subject Human Nature! {Pieces falling into place 😉

here’s the video

Now, when Michael Jackson died in 2009, the world changed a little. His worldwide fan base was mourning and the best tribute at the time I thought were the flash mobs, dancing in a tight choreography, Michael-style. And still you can come across tributes to Michael, like the little spray above. Tributes expressing everlasting love & admiration, I think it’s so endearing! {By the way, the video above is definitely the work of a big MJ fan!}

Expressions of love come in many ways and shapes, and here is just one of many videos showing fans loving Michael very much… {Sometimes love needs a bodyguard ;-)}
