Czech Puppets at the Columbus Museum Of Art

MQTlogoa This exhibit was in 2013 which is the last time I was at the Columbus Museum of Art. I will dedicate this post to PROCRASTINATION:::: Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Philip Stanhope
