I sometimes seriously wish I had a TARDIS. Not to change my past, but just to visit other times in history. Not that I have such a romantic view of the Regency or Renaissance eras, of the Roman Empire or the 1920’s in England, I would just love to visit the good things. I’d love to have seen Shakespeare acting in his plays, or the court of Kublai Khan. I would want to see America before Europe ruined it and Socrates lecturing.
We have wonderful things in our time, like CERN, Rock Festivals and mod cons, but I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era. Even in England and the 20th century I am more suited to the 60’s or 1920’s.
Instead of using a TARDIS I’ll just watch Downton Abbey and Marco Polo. Escapism is the best.
