Friday Five: Time and Transitions


1. If you could travel to any historical time period, which would it be, and why?
Wow, if I had a time machine I would try to sample quite a few historical periods... But first on my list would be to zip over to South Dakota around 1920 or so and see my grandmother as a teen.

2. What futuristic/science fiction development would you most like to see?
I'd like to see nanotechnology in medicine. Microscopic robotics would be used to enter the bloodstream, detect disease, and repair cells. Way cool.

3. Which do you enjoy more: remembering the past, or dreaming for the future?
I'm going to have to go with remembering the past. I suppose that's because it's a known entity.

4. What do you find most memorable about this year's Lent?
The most memorable thing about this year's Lent is reading Rodger's Portico Lenten Theoblog. Check it out!

5. How will you spend your time during this upcoming Holy Week? What part do you look forward to most?
We're going to be in New York City this year for Easter! I'm looking forward to the "theatuh", jazz, and general tourist stuff. Woohoo!

You're going to New York! The Big Apple? Oh, take me too! I promise to get a pedicure and not to fart!

PG, If you promise those two major items, how could I refuse?!

Serena linked to the Portico, too, so I'd better check it out. Thanks. Have a great trip!

I wonder if you will go to church on Easter in NYC? So many choices -- Riverside, St John the Divine, Abyssinian Baptist, St Patrick's -- and surely many more! I love your answer to #1 -- definitely would be the kind of thing I'd do too, given unlimited access to time travel.

Being able to "travel" inside the body to help diagnose and treat disease would be so wonderful.
