The moment is there to take

I WENT to the National Gallery of Victoria on the weekend to see Jean Paul Gaultier’s latest exhibition.
What an incredible spectacle – the playful mannequins whose eyes followyou around the room, the area covered inwall-to-wall mirrors and those costumes, redefining what we know about fashion.
Too bad I had to see it all behind the phone screens of other viewers.
People were practically pushing into one another, not to get the best view – but to get the best photo.
I saw so many visitorsmove from room to room, taking a photo of each costume. I wonder whetherthey evensaw the things in front of them.
It got me thinking about human kind’s fear of forgetting.
We are so scared of losing something, we invest everything win trying to remember it – at the expense of the experience itself.
There was a story going around last week of a man who was so distracted by his smart phone, he missed a humpback whale rising to the surfacejust metres from his boat.
Why can’t we letourselves live in the moment?
It is hard to let go sometimes – when we stumble across random art in our world, whether it’s a perfectly formed cloud in the sky, the music gig we’ve dreamt of, or the painting by our favourite artist.
But isn’t it the fleeting nature of the experiencethat makes it beautiful?
There are moments we will always remember, no matter what.
I don’t have photos to prove it, but I’ll never forgetseeing Andy Warhol’s soup cans up close, andplaying cards with my nan while eating pickles from the jar.
A photo would never capture thesmell of her perfume or the coldness of her hands as she hugged me goodbye.
We need to trust in ourselves more – trust in our memories and the power and impression of love.
I have no photos from the Jean Paul exhibition to share with you.
You will just have to trust me when I say, it was one I will remember forever.
