I love the weekly questions. You always surprise me with the variety of ways you interpret them. For example, this week I asked: “If you could go back in time, to what time would you go”?
When I wrote that, I never imagined you’d be staying longer than a few hours! I thought of it as a chance for you to either relive a happy moment in your own life, or to travel to another era to meet a person (or people) and experience their world – but only for a brief time.
Several of you were nervous that this was a one-way ticket in the time machine. Good heavens, Kids! I’d never send you on a trip from which you couldn’t return!!! There will be no Gilligan’s Island castaways allowed in this adventure. You all have to come back – I’d miss you if you didn’t!
Carol asked where I would go . . .
~ I’d like to return to the time when some of my family (who are now gone) were still here. I’d love the chance to spend a few more precious hours with them and to tell them I love them.
~ Finally, I’d like to have a chat with Queen Elizabeth I (the daughter of Henry VIII). She was an amazing woman for her own or any other era. I’d just stay for tea and then swiftly return to my computer.
So I’m wondering. Would you have given a different answer if you knew you only had to stay for a short time?
