Oops … I lagged a bit in the July Challenge answers! Let’s blame it on a wonderful vacation. 🙂
Question 7: If you could live in any time period, what would it be and why?
I’m going to be the first to admit that I would find it very, VERY hard to live without my modern conveniences … running water, electricity, air conditioners, modern medicine, the right to vote …
If I were going to live in an idealized time period, I’d probably pick turn of the century – 19th to 20th, that is. Great things and discoveries were happening then, women’s rights were coming to the surface in a new way, and there was enough medical knowledge that I could start to believe I might actually survive the turn of the century. Of course, I’d have to live through the First World War and probably the second. Ugh.
Seriously, I don’t know that there’s really an ideal time period. I’m kind of happy with where I am now. I’d love to bring back some of the slower ways of life or even the fashion of other time periods, but for me this current time is a pretty good one.
