Sometimes, I swear to God, I was born in the wrong century… My skillset — hand embroidery, music, tailoring, writing, archery, etc. — is entirely at odds with what is considered “practical” in today’s society. Not that I mind. Sometimes all this technology and news and modern sensibilities drive me nuts. Where did virtue go? Chivalry? Morals? The intelligence to navigate through real-life problems without the use of anything other than your own two hands? Self-reliance?

Sometimes I don’t think we are better off, what with all our cell phones and computers and such (oh, the irony, as I am writing this on my iPad…).

Good thing I can go play in times gone by on the weekends…
