An oddity of thinking

I wish I could lead more than one life. I would love to go beyond reading about another time and place. I want to actually experience. Smell it, taste it, see it, live it. What would I have done? What would I have seen? How would I have coped out on the lonely prairie? What would it be like to have lived in Medieval London or Paris? What was it really like? Maybe I'm too sheltered in my present life. I feel too safe. I love what I have and would not change it, but I'm still curious as to what else is out there. I think this feeling is why I love antiques. They have past lives and have witnessed history. They have survived and have a story to tell.
