NATIONAL TIME TRAVELER DAY

Celebrated since 2007, National Time Traveler Day lets you imagine yourself in all the different eras of the past; or think about traveling into the future to see what the world holds for us. Which direction would you go?

COULD WE CHANGE THE PATH OF TIME IF WE GO BACK?

When standing in my time travel machine, looking at the buttons that will take me back through the 40s, 50s, 60s....or maybe even earlier to a time of T Rex and cavemen; would I go back? Would I visit my young self? Would I visit with my Mom & Dad as children? When you go back in time, do you get to choose the actual address and visit with the people that were alive at the time? Would I visit with my Grandparents? Would I be sitting down watching black and white television, with no cellphone in hand? No fancy gadgets on my car? Hmmm?

Maybe I wouldn't go backwards at all. Maybe it's best to leave the past in the past and move forward. Visit the future; see where the world is headed.

MY TIME TRAVEL

I think if I could do time travel, I'd have to travel forward; see things that I won't get to see in my lifetime. I think I would travel forward about 500 years. I'd like to see what the new technology of the day is; or do they get rid of technology altogether. What are the fashions? What is the new lingo of the day? I wonder if 500 years from now, they'll bring back the big hair of the 80's?  What will be their classic rock? What will their country music look like? What new forms of music will we be listening to? What will they be studying and calling history in school?
