Shell Museum


Last month I went to the Shell Museum in Apollo Bay. I thought that it was amazing. and crazy. And I was so glad that I went. It somehow seemed perfect, the collections and displays and how they had probably never changed since it first opened.

Endless the series of things without name
On the way back to where there is nothing.
They are called shapeless shapes;
Forms without form;
Are called vague semblances.
Go towards them, and you see no front;
Go after them, and you see no rear.

Lao Tzu, Tao-te-ching, 14
