To those of you who have been, or are, enjoying a weekend break from the social medias, I’d hate you to miss out. Because… free stuff! And a chance to get your mitts on a copy of The Emerald Tablet plus some other Turkish-themed goodies.

Head to yesterday’s post for all the details.

It’s prompted a few questions about when and where I’d choose to go, given a time machine and a way to get by the whole space/time continuum thing.

For me, it’d have to be a world-shifting moment in history… to experience it for myself, and to see if the accounts we’ve inherited are accurate or not.

Too many to list. So just for starters… Golgotha, Palestine, 33 AD. Pompey’s Theatre, Rome, 44 BC. Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem, 621 AD. Kushinagara, India, 483 BC. Yes, even The. Grassy. Knoll, Dallas, Texas, 22 November, 1963. Know which events I’m talking about?😉

History is only ever an interpretation. To live it is something else altogether.
