If you could go back in time to any era, which one would you choose?
I would love to travel back to the time of the Renaissance. My husband and I enjoy attending Ren Faires, but we know this is a romanticized version of reality.
I think the fascination with that time has a lot to do with the style of dress, the art that was created, scientific advances, and the swashbuckling lifestyle. The clothes that we dress in are rich and elaborate… though I imagine the real peasants of the time would have considered our fabrics rich. Michelangelo and other great artists gave us some of our most beautiful art pieces. Printing was invented. Medical science advanced by leaps and bounds.
We have created a fantasy of pirates, kings, and bar “wenches.” that I think is far from truth. I would love to see the reality of that time… though I don’t think I would want to stay there.
