Surely it's the curse of the modern world that so many people now work at a computer while the compter also provides the biggest distraction from work ever devised ... (Dave Gorman)

Unnerved in Ghent

The Dr Guislain Museum in Ghent ... a psychiatric hospital museum which I think may be part of a still working psychiatric clinic. It's the oldest psych institution in Belgium.

It's not the first psych. hospital I've been too but even so this was a little disturbing at times (actually, I usually feel a little bugged out by psych. hospitals). You can wander through some of the wards and look at the different treatment approaches - they just make me wince and feel for the residents.

They also have sections put aside for 'outsider art' (read - created by people with mental health problems). Some of it is remarkable - for obsessive detail or insight and understanding - and some is just a little unnerving. It was worth an afternoon.

De Bron der Geknielden in Ghent ... maybe one of the saddest statues
I've seen.

Oh, it's bleached out because I messed up the white balance.
