If I Could Have Witnessed An Event In History, Which Would I Choose? And Why?

Off (photography) topic post today! What Event in History Would I Have Wanted to Witness and Why?

Hmmm.... I have so many moments that I'm going to cheat a little (OK, cheat a lot!) and say that I would want to have been 10 years old in 1960.  The entire decade of the '60s has always excited me!!!

Had I been 10 in 1960, it would have let me experience the following events throughout the decade, in no particular order:

  • JFK's assassination
  • Woodstock
  • Beatles Mania
  • Vietnam
  • Landing on the Moon
  • Telephones and TVs were introduced into many households
  • MLK, Jr
  • Cuyahoga River caught fire
  • Hippies
  • Title IX
  • Detroit muscle cars
  • The Graduate, Breakfast at Tiffany's and the 007 franchise
The pop culture, social and political climates and women's rights were ever changing (revolution or evolution?) throughout the '60s faster than most decades had ever changed before then.  I'm awestruck by how much positively changed in these 10 years: men and women became equals and segregation legally ended.

Of course, what I know about the '60s I've learned from history books, movies, books and stories from my relatives who lived in this period.  I admit that I have a poetic and hopeful view of this period of time.  

As much as I want it to be filled with rainbows and kittens, I know there was strife and agony for many; men who were destroyed by war and unwelcomed when they returned home, drug addiction spiked with the introduction of new drugs, and gender and race equality were federally mandated but not in reality.

But, I still would want to experience this decade more than any other event in history.  Now it's your turn!  What event would you choose and why?

Three Things I'm Loving Right Now: Summer 2019 Edition

I have a guilty confession to make...here are my top three things I'm loving right now! BH 90210 - The Beverly Hills 90210 reboot series has only aired a few episodes and I'm so thrilled with how they did it!  It's not a typical reboot that picks up almost 30 years after the original series ended.  The original cast play themselves in a distorted reality-based way.  If you were a fan of the original, it's worth checking out this reboot!  "The Art of Racing in the Rain" (Movie Edition) - OK - I'm a "This is Us" fan (Milo 😍).  And, I love dogs (especially golden retrievers)....and well, I love Kevin Costner and Ferraris too!  But, I finally had a chance to watch this in the theater and let's just say I'm so very glad there were only a few other people in the theater as I silently sobbed from the first 30 seconds to the very last 30 seconds.  I have not read the book.  So, I don't know how they compare, but this movie was so beauti
