If I Had a Superpower…

Surely I’m not the only one who has pondered this question…”What superpower would you have, if you could choose one?”

It’s fun to think about being invisible,¬†having super-human strength, or being able to fly. But I know exactly what superpower I would have, and it’s none of those.

My superpower would be being able to look through a lens, and see what any place looked like at various points in history. I don’t want to be a time-traveler…I think I would get into too much trouble! But when I look at the world around me, I desperately want to know what it looked like way back when.

What was our subdivision like in pioneer days? Was anybody here? What did Monk’s Mound look like as it was being built? What would our country have looked like when wooly mammoths were present?¬†What did it look like before modern roads and buildings, when planes didn’t constantly fly overhead, and the sound of cars wasn’t always humming in the background?

There are so many things in time that I wish I could see. Not experience, not live through, just see for myself, be able to compare the then and now, see how people and places have changed through the course of history.

I think that would be a very cool superpower to have!
