Going Back in Time -- The Places I would visit

Source

You might wonder Why Joseph loves History?? Is in me, and will be in me until the last day or the last second before 'teleportation.'

To begin with, I would love to go places at a very unique and specific time...

I would love to go back in time so bad at any time... since I was five, i tried to grab those sequential bits of memory for any future use. What for?

I have tried to memorise dates, special moments, that were captured by my mind. Here are some examples and the dates are accurate by the day and ... by the way... is already time!!

Quantic holo-Screen--


Friday December 13, 1971

I see myself in front of this blackboard. I'm nine years old.

My eyes lids clear this white dust in front of me. Is almost noontime in our own classroom. I remember it so well, because I was already hungry. Our 2nd grade teacher chose 3 students to solve these scary divisions; we were one of them to step forward. We were around 7 years old and... we saw our teacher explaining carefully to us where we, actually, did go wrong.

The microscopic dust from the piece of chalk made us sneeze. Finally, and for the very first time, we were able to connect our brain with those dividends and divisors, and that freaking 'residual.'

We saw our other 2 friends still struggling in trying to solve their own Divisions next to me. The sensation has lasted until today: The capability of learning, and perhaps teaching ourselves, when there was not other means available whatsoever.

Friday March 13, 1982

After walking for 3 miles with my own special force commando, me and my private Ryan buddies arrived at this firing range area set in a remote place. I was in the Army of course, and it was time to learn how to shoot toward that target range in front of me. I saw myself positioning this rifle assault 'butt' against my shoulder. Our officer warned us to be ready for the big HIT that could spell as in SH*T.

Like shooting a slow motion scene, the mortal chamber released its bullet onto the target. I felt the rifle actually bouncing back against my shoulder, just as our instructor told us. The smell of powder hit my imagination as well, and...

AND.. took me back in time...


The storming of The Bastille

July 14th 1789

Le Bastille, Paris, France

Feeling myself like a free falling bird, I'm able to see this French Revolution taking its course:

Militia joining the meek finally storms this epitome to those chains against Liberty, Fraternity and Equality. I fly myself over the smoke of tyranny and injustice. Actually I almost got forked by this peasant that is saying in clear French: 'Mort! , La mort de la tyrannt!'

A thunderous blast was heard from behind the tired and raggedy masses, advancing toward the Bastille. It was a cannon ball that was heading toward one of the Turrets. The impact reached some Royalist Soldiers that fell in pieces. The carnage reaches its top pivotal point, when A drawbridge is being raised, by the Loyalists. Hundreds of people that joined the revolution against King Louis fall into the artificial Channel that separated the Fortress-turn-prison from an impending overnight storming. I can smell these freaking rats and the unbearable stench. Urine like smelling comes from these peasants mouth. No wonder, French were... or became famous for concocting the best perfumes in the World.


HISTORY CLASS

Friday September 9, 1977

I see myself listening to my favorite History teacher. She was Miss SQ. The blackboard is in front of us, the students. Some important dates have already been written by her. The chalk would make that screeching and prying sound, that would carve in my memory precious moments like this one. She would point to the dates and would tell us:

"You don't need to memorise dates; you need to understand what really happened on those dates. We know that George Washington crossed the Delaware River on that Christmas day of 1775, but wouldn't be better if you could be there with him. facing desertion and abandonment of duty from his own comrades, and the icy waters? Can you imagine, if he would've stayed behind those Valley Forge encampments? Did you see any black guy in that memorable painting?"

I was like, holly shirt!! She was opening a can of worms in my mind, and I was just 15 years old. She did change my life, and these pages are in tribute to her. My mind started to set my imagination to fly... again?

The battle of Hastings back in 1066, The pre Yodda Honorable Bede, the 'Dead sea scrolls' and even those extraterrestrials from the past came to my mind, like a celestial feeder of unforgettable knowledge...!

April 29, 1998

Universal Studios, Los Angeles

After getting off from my Westin Hotel 31st floor room, that my company booked for me in downtown LA, I decided to take a taxi, and headed myself to experience this must see attraction. After having fun with this 'Water World MOVIE' aquatic show, and that J'urassic park' Splashing, I bumped into the Delorean that was at the beginning of this Hub. My eyes could not believe what I saw far into the distance I saw this Impersonator. I said, 'Doc Brown!!???'

Okay, back to the future moderators!!

Life 'time lines' and memories! I do this with music, and special scents like cherry pie baking and the smell of hay and oats.. and I'm back there in a heart beat! But to remember the specific date - that's a great gift! It was fun to walk down memory lane with you!

Very trippy. If only we could go back in time knowing what we learned. There would be so many. Very creative!

Lord,

That was a great hub--and no I am ready for a time machine. I want to go back and talk to my Great-Great Grandfather. I should write a hub about him--he was something else.

You are a great writer and I am learning some things I did not know by reading your hubs---and I thought I knew everything.LOL

Your Hub Friend,

Bobbi

This is creatively written Lord! :) If only we could really go back in time. But in a second thought, I would like things the way they were. It's more thrilling. You'll never know what the future unfolds. :)

Another great hub from you my friend. I enjoyed reading it a lot. :D

Excellent hub! Enjoyed reading it as this is one of my desires also, to go back in time.... But not my past, back in history. You sound like you are around my age. Good to know you fellow Hubber.......

Great trip along memory lane. The 'oldest' memory of my childhood I could remember was when I was 3 years old. At the moment, I could not remember everything that happened in my life, some are hazy, but others are still very clear. Imprinted are the milestones, experiences that changed me for the better ( I hope).

Great hub. Thanks for sharing.

Hi CandieV,

Was fun for me too. I wanted to go back to that sixth century, and see how Venerable Bede, was facing the changes from old Saxon to a new medieval English. I mean, this should be available on a near Delorean-Mart near you!

@Tammy Swallow,

Yeah! actually, the more you see back in time, the more inspirations you can get. seems like this is really positive for me.

@Bobbi Purvis.

I would ask your great grand dad so many things, that I would make a movie out of it. I seen him meeting your great granny and having a ball. I can hear their music..closde to that irish song from the bottom of the Titanic... and they lived their time for sure.

@SingerNurse,

Would ove to go back in time and avoid or stop benigno Aquino's assassin, behind the Plane steps. I saw that video, back in 83..? And I see that shadow, the same shadow of cospiracy that killed Kennedy. But you might be right. Better live a life that is ahead and loomming over...

@Lathing,

Did you know that my last day in High school was like a especial day for me? I was touching the teacher's desk. That blackboard, that actually was green. The heroes pictures on the wall. running to see other classrooms and actually memorising with this retina, whatever I could capture for posterity.

@Tenkay,

You are a good fellow; I can tell by your words. You daydream experiences at times, and that cashier that is waiting for you to get your groceries scanned, might've thought you were high on something else. WasI wrong?

@Gypsy Rose,

I would suggest you to go back in time to see how was Coney Island before that Verrazano Bridge. You have so many memories. Like go back and ask your dad, how he came with that poetry in latvian...huh?

Hi Debbie! Lol!

Well I actually felt as though I was in all those places at the same time. Right now, I just remembered where I was when I started first grade school. Kinda sad because I felt alone. Mom went homea and left me there with these strangers. Barely mumbling the National Anthem...

Hi Eddy,

Didn't see this comment, or thought I did answer to it. Time after time... we make a stop in our lives and look behind, with laughter or delightful fun. Thanks for commenting on this hub.

LORD
