    Developing one's interests, spirituality and interpersonal relationships. Improving one's community. Things we don't have time for today.

    Since you were born in a time when there weren't any internet or cell phones, have you been able to notice the decline of community improvement, family and friend time, and spirituality? I will have to agree with you that these things are in decline. So I guess, all things considered, you've convinced me.

    I bet you a buck it isn't split. This is on-topic! (And I'll win that bet, too, because if it is, well... I'll just fix that right up. )

    The future (I tend to do this already in my own mind). The reason being, they'd have better stuff.

    The two decades prior to WWI was the best time in history.
    Democracy is about Demos.

    A Demos is an abstract entity.
    The Demos is about what is.

    The future. Or perhaps ancient Japan and/or China.

    1860s
    Lots of interesting writers about. Also, big skirts.

    I think I would have had fun having been born in 1952 or 1962, rather than 1982. Or perhaps 1882. The 1910s and 1920s were fun times, the fashion, music, and literature were great, the economy was humming along. I would have cut quite the foppish figure back then.

    As a female, my options would be severely limited in most times in the past, so I'll have to say that I'd switch genders and join up with Marco Polo or some other explorer/traveler back when most of the map was blank!

    1900-1939

    I lived with my grandfather for many years and he was born in 1905. The house just sort of stood still in time. We have his tools (some of which are very old) and a lot of old furniture passed down through the family. Example, I have an inherited washstand sitting in our spare room/storage that dates to 1840. Rocking chairs about that old. Mantle clock that old.

    I guess I feel more comfortable and at home in the era my grandfather lived in. I do love the 40s and 50s too, but in my heart, I'm Edwardian.
