This has been such a fun week, learning what time period and place people would like to experience. And how exciting that this is the launch week for Heather Davis's The Clearing! I don't know about you all, but I'm very excited to read it. And this week, six lucky commenters will win it!
Now, what time period and place would I like to visit if I could? I'm really bad at these type of questions because I analyze them way too much and keep changing my mind and make a whole production out of something that should probably be easy. For instance, would it be for just a day, or would I be stuck there for a long time? So I'm just going to pretend that it's only for a short time so I can be braver with my answer.
I'd like to go back to the beginning of the Renaissance, specifically 14th century in Tuscany. Hopefully I'd survive the Black Death plague and get to put my two cents in when it came to new intellectual, artistic, philosophical, and religious views.
Other time periods/places I would like to visit are: The Wild Wild West of America, mid to late 1800s, for the cute cowboys; Paris in the 1960s for the grooviness; and Bethel, NY, Aug. 15-18, 1969 for Woodstock.
