Checking In And A Small Roadtrip Into History

I’m not sure how it’s the middle of March already.

Took a road trip up to Virginia around the turn of the month.  Five days of driving, historic sights, friends and music on the ipods.

We took a walk through the historic section of Williamsburg, VA, though we ended up skipping most of the museums in the interest of time and money.  I try to imagine living back in that time and cannot:  doing everything ourselves, chopping wood for heat and cooking, no wrappers, no plastic.  We’ve come too far and become too comfortable for that to ever work.  I look around my room and mentally subtract everything that would not exist.

Even the windows have plastic in them.
