Another Dark Little Corner
Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.
There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought. Mark Twain (letter to Joseph Twichell after his wife's death)

Bethlem Royal Hospital Archives and Museum
Bethlem Royal Hospital Archives and Museum:
"The Bethlem Royal Hospital Archives and Museum records the lives and experience and celebrates the achievements of people with mental health problems"Originally St Mary of Bethlehem, now officially Bethlem, the common name for this place was Bedlam. It has become, of course, a word in itself with its own meaning.
It's also the ‘place of deposit’ for the archives of the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust and its predecessors, including the records of Bethlem, the Maudsley, and Warlingham Park Hospitals, and the joint records of Bridewell and Bethlem.Through the information that they contain, archives can help us to understand the past and show us how the past has shaped our own lives, our institutions, and our environment. Most people think of archives as 'very old'. Some are, but they can also be quite recent: and the records which we create today will become tomorrow's archives, enabling future generations to learn about how we lived and worked.
