Written in response to the daily prompt for Bloganuary “If you could, what year would you time travel to, and why?”
Quite honestly I have no desire to travel to the past or the future. I’d rather make the most of today.
I’ve never thought I was an aristocrat in a past life so I can just see me being transported back to a peasant’s life in a cold wet climate, where it was a day to day struggle to make ends meet. Come to think of it, sounds much like my current state of affairs except I am warm and dry! 🤣🤣
And the future?
I have watched some of the sci-fi shows my nephew loves with time travel and alternate universes but I can’t keep up with who is where and when, so I soon lose interest and go back to my book 📖
Clare travels backwards and forwards through the standing stones in Diana Gabaldon’s series Outlander and I really enjoy all those books (not so much the TV series though)! Perhaps reading it gives my mind the time to grasp the changing time and place whereas movies and TV shows flick so quickly from one to the other. And their lives seem somehow more relatable than those in the unknown future
Anyhow, I’m happy with the present day. Sure it has challenges, particularly with Covid, but every era has its own.
I like my life, so for me, there’s no time like the present!

I very much sympathize with what you’ve written. I was asked a few times about the past, not about the future, and I answered that I don’t wish to go back, as the past was not good to women (to say the least). We are not at our best today either, but much better than before. I believe that we should seize the day with all our might
