Thread: When would you live?

  1. #16
    Oh Mary I did not know Anne was your favorite as she is mine. Beautiful, musically talelented, intelligent more so then Henry perhaps, a wonderful dancer, a trend setter in fashion, loving mom and how she suffered at the end with seeing her friends and brother George killed betrayed by those who lied for their own gain. It still makes me sad... To die and leave her beautiful daughter.............
    I have read much about her and one theroy is that she had negitive blood value to Henry's postive and so Elizabeth would have been her only child. I so feel a kinship with her.
    When I went to England two years ago I stood at Tower Green on May 19 and said a prayer for Anne. It was also my mom's birthday.

Either then or during Victorian times but women didn't have it much better then either. I just love Victoriana, the clothing, the furnishings, etc. The Victorians had such a love of beauty; they were so lavish w/their decor. Perhaps I would be a single woman then. It was after a woman got married that she ended up losing her rights. Her fortune went to her husband, even her children were lost to her should she divorce.

    The very beginning of earth & watching it being formed into mountains, seas, rivers, forests, etc. I bet it was a sight to see.

    But that didn't happen in a person's lifetime - it took millions+ years. Even Methuselah wouldn't have lived long enough to see that.

    I wouldn't change my life today for any other. Each era has it's good and it's bad points.
    I'm perfectly happy with my life as it is today, I sometimes feel a touch of nostalgia for the good old days but there were hard times along with the good back then also.
    I'll leave the future for when it knocks at my door.

    I have no idea - now or sometime in the future - when we have invented FTL travel and can visit other worlds, unless I was not as nearsighted and didn't have asthma - then some historical times might be interesting!

    I wouldn't care to live that long. I think the idea here, was referring to an average person's lifetime, but of course, I could be wrong.

    Absolutely she's my fav! When I went to Hever Castle, her childhood home, I looked out her bedroom window and tried to imagine what it must have felt like to her as she pondered her future. My friend snapped a pic of me looking out that window and had it framed and sent it to me. The boy made a DVD of our trip and made an actual movie out of it complete w/credits, music, commentary, the whole bit. When it came to the window scene, I cried b/c it really touched me.

    I also admire Katherine of Aragon. She went to hell and back for Henry, too. She wasn't beheaded but she died slowly and broken hearted. But my kinship is w/Anne Boleyn, for sure. Her daughter, Queen Elizabeth I is my second favorite historical character. To have stood at Traitor's Gate where Elizabeth sat and refused to go in b/c she feared that if she went into the Tower that she wouldn't come out alive gave me chills.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    I am happy with being born in the late 50's,however sometimes i think i should have been born in my parents era,i am a bit old fashioned in some ways.,but generally i am happy with the era i was born in.

    What makes me laugh is my daughter and her boyfriend think because i used to wear hippie type clothing,long dresses, batik skirts, ugg boots, i was a hippie, but i was not,they give me a hard time in fun about it, and that i must have been smoked a lot of dope in my day, which i never did,they think everyone did, i would say just as many do today as in that era. lol

    I think there's several points in history I'd like to visit; maybe living in them would be a little too much!

    I've always been captivated by Ancient Egypt so would be happy to see any point in that period. Got to agree with Puck with regards to Cicero, seeing him deliver In Catilinam after studying it for so long would be amazing!

    My secondary school was founded over 500 years ago and so I'd love to go back to its early days and see if any quirky aspect has been carried through its history.

    Then I'd like to dwell in the 80s for a while, and get the chance to see Queen, Michael Jackson, and Live Aid on stage.

    OMG. Just reading this sentence gave me a few more gray hairs. Having someone think of the 80's as going back in time, even though it is technically, makes me feel like Methuselah.
    Blessings,

    I said the same thing to my father once, about going back to the eighties. He said,

    "Going back? They've barely gone!"

    He was never that impressed when I studied the Falklands War in history either.

    I am very content to have been born when I was & into the family
    that I have, but I would love to go back in time to visit different periods. A trip
    back to see the pyramids being built, or the first flight of an airplane, or
    maybe, join a wagon train across the West for a few days. No long stays
    anywhere in the past, I like it here.
