I occasionally ponder what I would have done if I had been born in the middle ages. If I had turned out with a similar set of skills and interests, I think I probably would have gone into making locks. There's something about the constant challenge of making locks more and more secure that appeals to me.

So, if you had been around a few hundred years ago, what would you have liked to have been doing?

If we're going on our merits, I'd probably have chosen to be an artisan of some sort too; I find great peace in the art of taking my time over crafting something.

That said, I'd probably not have been born into a position of any authority, so I'd more likely have been scooping mud into sacks and complaining about the violence inherent in the system to anyone who would listen...

Hahahaha. I just realised that this is what I do anyway. (See: comment to Mata on my fb wall about violent protest)

Continuing with the Monty Python theme, I'd have probably been a witch. Creepily perceptive, working knowledge of herbs (not that kind, stop the sniggering at the back), headstrong, curious, and I like to think I could pull off the Tattered Rags look. Also, I like leaping about on hills and howling at the moon as modern past-times, so I think it could work well.

We are unraveling our navels so that we may ingest the sun.
