If you could live at any time in history, when would it be? There are two time periods I am interested in.
First is the wild west. I’m thinking late 1800’s. I love the stage coaches, horses, steam trains, trail rides and cattle drives. I’ve had a love of western stories especially Louis L’Amour since early in high school. Naturally, I have the boots, hat, spurs and even a six gun. When we do a western theme at camp, I think it’s mostly for me. I like that in the old movies, it’s easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys by their hats. My hat is black. Not sure what that says about me. I have to admit though, I wouldn’t be too excited about the lack of indoor plumbing. 😉
My second choice would be medieval times. I have been a fan of King Arthur for many years and love the idea of kings, knights, princesses, armour and of course, swords. I have three swords of my own and nay camp theme is a good reason to get another one. I also like the leadership lessons we can learn from the Round Table like collaboration, working beside each other, having synergy and a Code of Chivalry.
When in history would you want to live?
