Question of the day.

If you had to live at some point in the past, which time period would you choose and why? You’d be your current age and you’d have to go back to at least the late 90’s (or further back). You can choose any place.

My answer:

That’s really quite tricky. I think any time is interesting because of something, but I’d probably look for something beyond the 20th century about which we know quite well and, to me, it doesn’t have quite as much of the mystery factor. I feel like I’d like to go back to the middle ages most, however, it would be really difficult practically, ’cause back then I think it would be tricky being blind. Perhaps – even just because I’d be someone from the future – I’d be able to overcome the social difficulties involved in this (I could be some sort of a psychic or something), but there still would be all the logistics to deal with. I don’t think I would easily get used to, for example, depending on other people for getting virtually any kind of information that I can now get thanks to being able to read and having technology to help, of which blind people in the middle ages had neither. Ancient times could be interesting as well. As for place… I really don’t have much of a clue either. If I could go back in time, perhaps I could also be able to teleport, and go between all my favourite countries/areas and see what’s going on there? Practically though, I think it would be wisest to stay somewhere round here because I really don’t know how well I’d be able to understand people that far back in time anywhere else, I think I’d have some communication problems even here but I guess not as bad. ๐Ÿ˜€

How about you? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Being blind in historical times would definitely be a hindrance! It’s a wonder that you’re blind in modern times with all the tech!! YAY!

    Hmm…. I guess I’d go with pioneer America, because the Little House in the Big Woods books sort of romanticize it a bit. I’ve always been intrigued by that time. The style of dress, the hard work, the solemnity… but to be completely honest, that was my fantasy as a teenager. Now, living with tech that wasn’t around when I was a teenager, I don’t think I could go without my internet!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Oh my!! I’d be bored senseless!! Now, if we could take internet back to the prairie, I might be willing to travel back to then! ๐Ÿ˜€ Of course…. there would be no service. [Facepalm.]
