Sunday Scribblings prompt: #132 -- If I had to live at a different time in history - the exercise this week is to decide what era in history you would choose to live in if you couldn't live now. Not just when, but why? While you're at it, how about where? What do you imagine life would be like?
A combination of some decades and desires create the time in which I'd like to live:
when I was confident of being loved by the gods and no harm could befall me regardless of the risks I took
when music was physical and created a yearn to stop the car on the side of the road in order to dance
when people were more friendly than not and there was space to get away but with enough elasticity to draw me back easily
when there was an ability to keep the black parts hidden and unused instead of hanging them on the clothesline
when discussions about important worldly topics could be held without guns or curses
when safety meant more than government intervention and luck rode bareback
when the Internet provided a library in a box as well as effortless communication with friends and family far and near
Ah, those were the times...
