Time Travel Anyone? I’d Go Backwards For Sure

I just heard about this thing called #bloganuary to help inspire bloggers to post every day during the month of January.

Since it’s already the 21st, I’ve missed out on most of the month. Good thing my favorite saying is “better late than never”.

The writing prompt for today is, “If you could, what year would you time travel to, and why?”

I’m trying to decide on a year, but I would definitely go backward in time. I guess this makes me not very adventurous. The future does not look very promising at this point, and I don’t think I want to know what is coming, even if I’m not here to see it.

Mom at Hampton Beach, NH – year? 1950’s

I don’t want to go back to relive a wonderful childhood, except that it was pretty nice until about age 10. It really was nice to be young and oblivious. I had a nice house and lots of land and spent all the time I could outside.

I’d want to go back and pay closer attention to family while I had it.

I’d ask my grandmother about her knitting knowledge, and my grandfather about his strawberry shortcake biscuit recipe.

I do think I would go back and try to appreciate my relatives more. I’d love to ask them loads of questions that I can not find an answer to these days. My childhood was the only time I really had substantial family around me.

The prompt does not mention anything about length of stay in our time slot, so that would factor in to my choice too.

I certainly don’t want to relive my childhood, but a few days spent in a good year could be quite fun.

Oh… and it must be winter. I will have to go sledding with my friends.

I grew up in New England but spent most of my life living in central Florida. The joy in my life comes from being on the water, gardening in the backyard, RV camping, playing with my two cats, and hanging out with my grown kids.
