Sunday’s Musings about Possible Historical Bloggers

I’m sitting here , thinking about how much technology has changed since I was younger, it has grown by leaps and bounds.  I remember my parents getting one of the first televisions  – only 3 channels that you had to get up change the channels, I remember the excitement when it finally came into color.  I remember the first microwave coming into our house.  My mom only used it to heat a cup of water. But it totally amazed her.  I’ve always been a techno geek, always the first in line to get the latest techno toy.  I know I had the first CD player in my group of friends, I was the first to play online role playing games among my friends and now I’m blogging.   But all this makes me think of the historical figures who really would enjoy this communication medium.

It’s Sunday, a day of rest, a day to be grateful. yes I am I live in this day of technology and communication; that I can express how I feel to an audience like you.  Let’s imagine what history could tell us if they could be here and blog for us.

Wouldn’t Benjamin Franklin, just love expounding his philosophy here.  His “Common Sense” in blog format.

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” ― Benjamin Franklin

“Many people die at twenty five and aren’t buried until they are seventy five.” ― Benjamin Franklin

“Hide not your talents, they for use were made, What’s a sundial in the shade?― Benjamin Franklin

Can you imagine, Mr. Albert Einstein‘s blog?

Albert Einstein“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
Albert Einstein

“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”
Albert Einstein

Personally I would have loved to read Cleopatra’s blog, I think a woman ruler of her time, dealing with the men and politics of her time would be very enlightening.

As one author describes her, “Her seductive power, however, did not lie in her looks […]. In reality, Cleopatra was physically unexceptional and had no political power, yet both Caesar and Antony, brave and clever men, saw none of this. What they saw was a woman who constantly transformed herself before their eyes, a one-woman spectacle.

Her dress and makeup changed from day to day, but always gave her a heightened, goddesslike appearance. Her words could be banal enough, but were spoken so sweetly that listeners would find themselves remembering not what she said but how she said it.”
Robert Greene, The Art of Seduction

“I was not content at home. . . I wanted to live like a colorful butterfly in the sun.”
Mata Hari

I am a woman who enjoys herself very much; sometimes I lose, sometimes I win.-Mata Hari
