To the past Oct 9, 2017

If only I could go back to my past and alter it here and there…

Except that... if you changed something in the past, you never know what consequences this could have! A bad thing avoided might lead to something much worse.

Stay here Oct 9, 2017

I've no wish to relive the past or get stuck in a time warp. Any of you travelling to the future, no spoilers please!

Future Oct 9, 2017

I'd go to the future to find out if I should be making plans to change professions now and avoid being phased out in the future.

To the future for a while Oct 9, 2017

I will jus look out whats next or what great idea may have success in the future... not necessarily take a look at the lotery numbers, something to work or invest in.

stay put Oct 9, 2017

Oh well, so many things I miss from the past... but If I could live them again they would not have the same taste...
Future? No thanks... when you grow old you have more chances to lose the people you love or you could bad things about your future (and that would mean that coming back to your time you would do everything to avoid those bad things but you actually would cause them to happen)

I love my here and now...
my kids have the an age that allows us to share things but they are still my little kids
music and books around me are ok
just one member of my my family has gone
I have work to do

The future Oct 9, 2017

I got used to the modern technology. There's no way I'd go back to the past and work with dictionaries and typewriters again. I'd go to the future only for a while, to find out if MTs actually replaced translators or not.
