"The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once." ... Albert Einstein
I have always been fascinated with the concept of time travel. In some ways, I'm not sure if I believe in time ... at least time as we know it. I often think that everyone is happening at once, contrary to what Einstein said. Well, of course, who can argue with Einstein, but wouldn't it be nice to think that with the press of a button -- zappo, presto -- we could zip backwards and forwards in time, to any time we would like. I suppose some of us would go back in time, and perhaps some of us would go forward. Others might wish to stay right here. But when you think about it, in another place in time, people who have not been born yet are dancing under the warm summer sunshine. And in still another place in time, people we have lost are young again and are skipping through a field of daisies, or petting a cat, or falling in love for the first time. It is happening right now, only in another place in time.
If you had the opportunity to go anywhere in time you wished to go, where would it be? I think for me, I would go back to my family's wonderful little house on Latham Road, where I was surrounded by my friends, and we spent our time roller skating, playing hop scotch, bike riding, and feeling very safe walking to school. The world of possibilities still lay ahead of us.
