Welcome to my blog.
Where across centuries people live, love, and celebrate life.
In this day and age when our lives seem to race from the time we get up in the morning until our head touches the pillow at night, to look back on a simpler time can be calming. So far, the 21st Century has been one tumultuous disaster after another. The perennial fires in the western US, the floods and tornadoes in the south, humanitarian disasters, and political intrigues happening around the world even as I type this seem endless. The blatant in-your-face reporting from the news channels have heightened the sense that we as a population must act, do something to prevent the drastic weather. We chase our dreams, make money, and prove ourselves to become something. To be the change we wish to see in the word. In the 21st Century, that axiom has become our mantra.
But history has always had its trauma. Humanity would not be where it is today without our violent past. I often wonder what today’s reporters would have made of the American Civil War. Or our fight for independence. Or, to go back further, Henry the VIII beheading his wives. Sometimes I lie awake at night amusing myself with scenarios of our intrepid reporters from CNN, or Fox News, or the BBC about how they would have reported those events. Or the plague in Seventeenth-Century London. Would they have been fair? Or would there be the bashing on both sides, finger pointing, and blame for each side? Our modern world tries to make sense of the pandemic and newscasters and politicians wring their hands about what to do. I suspect the theologian’s and scientists, and politicians of the Restoration period were no different.
I can’t wait to get into the nitty-gritty details and share some fantastic resources that bring history to life. Welcome to my blog.
