A Take on Time Travel, We Cannot Go Back

The idea and notion of time travel has been written about in science fiction for years. Going back or forward in time is a fantasy many have. Of course there are consequences of time travel and you have to be careful not to do anything that would impact ones future or past. From “Doctor Who” to “Back To The Future” we have seen what travelling through time and space can mean.

The time travel I want to talk about is going back into the past. Many of us would love to go back to a time where we felt comfortable, safe, secure. There are memories that help time travel so to speak so we can be in a place or to recapture a moment we would have loved to stay in.

We all have the desire to go back to the good old days where things were simpler. The Doctor anddelorean-back-to-the-future Marty McFly with Doc Brown had means at their disposal to go back in time. However they eventually needed what was next, what was possible. They found themselves in the here and now with an eye on the future.

Some people want desperately to turn back the clock. However we can’t do that because of all the advancements we have made and the new found liberties for people who have lived life on the fringes. I don’t think a person of color would want to go back to a time when they were treated as less than human. No we can only move ahead to help everyone realize the great promises that lie ahead.

We all need to have an eye on the future because we can’t stand still. As we speak we are time travelling. As Steve Miller once sang “Time keeps slipping into the future” and its true. As much as we want to we can’t go home again. But we do have our memories to help is go back when we need to for a moment.

Random Acts Of Likes

I find it fun to go to a blog I don’t normally follow and like a few their posts. To me getting random acts of likes is a great thing. This is a great way to positively impact a blogger and to encourage them to keep on blogging. If they follow back its great, if not then there is nothing personal. You do it because it gives them a lift. That is the beauty of being on a blogging platform that is connected with others.

Reader Refresh

This is an article on the refresh of the WordPress Reader. I don’t mind the changes however some lament them. Either way here is a little more info on what’s going on.

The WordPress.com Blog

Today, we’re proud to present an improved version of the WordPress.com Reader. We’ve made the Reader faster, with shorter load times and smoother scrolling. We’ve also improved the way we display posts, so you can now see the highlights of each story at a glance.
