Classic and Contemporary

I was born in 1969 and that number is a part of the address of my blog here. Age is just a number, right? So I feel I am from a classic era in time where a lot happened and the culture had an identity all its own. However I live in contemporary times and its my goal to relate to those who are finding their way in the world and experiencing growth in this time.

Classic and contemporary are two things that are evolving, changing, rolling with the time that is going by. As we go through life we see things becoming classic all the time and new things are becoming contemporary. Being both ancient and modern at the same time can be a challenge but one that is worth it as we seek to live in the here and now.

A Quick Handmaid’s Tale Overview

The Handmaid’s Tale is a story of cruelty, religious dogma and hate run amok by people who have taken scripture out of context and to promote ignorance of one gender to advance the cause of another. It is about the subjugation of women who are reduced to walking wombs to save the bacon of men who have done horrible things to the world. Today we seem to be inching closer to that reality by men who want to assert their dominance over people who are not like them. It is disturbing in every way possible. I wouldn’t want to live in such a world as Gilead. Tonight I’m wrapping up season two and its been a horrific ride.
