    Which Era and Land Would You Have Loved to Live in?

    Simple question, should bring interesting answers.
    "The heavenly motions... are nothing but a continuous song for several voices, perceived not by the ear but by the intellect,
    a figured music which sets landmarks
    in the immeasurable flow of time."

    Pre Roman Ireland and Brittania

    I'd also like to have travelled with ancient seafaring peoples such as the basques, the phoenecians, or South Pacific islanders etc., because I think we drastically understimate their ranges and accomplishments and the degree to which the corners of the ancient world were linked.

    In England or Germany during the Romantic movement.
    Preferably as a bloke because I would not want to be some swooning art/music groupie.
    Or... maybe I would.
    A* I’m a dreadful reactionary, Mrs. Helena. I don’t like this progress one bit.
    H* Like Nana.
    A* Yes, like Nana. Does Nana have a prayer book?
    H* A big fat one.
    A* And are there prayers in it for various occurrences in life? Against storms? Against illness?
    H* Against temptation, against floods -
    A* But not against progress, I suppose?
    H* > I think not.
    A* That’s a shame.

    I'll stick to the time & place I'm in. By the time I die - assuming I live for at least another 30 to 40 years - Western Civilization will either collapse or there will be some savior who will become as renowned through the ages as Charlemagne or Caesar. Whichever it is, it will be an interesting time to live through.

    I think we can assume OEN would have been part of the ruling class - not an oppressed worker.

    Still... why go for England, when you have this in Germany?

    Actually "that" took place in the Hall of Mirrors at the Chateau de Versailles in France.
