Today’s blog prompt: If you could travel in time for just one day, where would you go and what would you do?
I am a day late with number two of Shimelle's blog prompts. The answer was a simple one .... I just ran out of time .... ironic huh???
If I could travel in time for just one day I would go back to the day in 1903 when the Wright brother's finally realised their vision of powered human flight.
"It was Wilbur's abiding dream of building a full-size flying machine that inspired their work. Apparently he once said, he had been "afflicted with the belief that flight is possible." The reality of that obsession was a lonely quest for the brothers in the workroom behind their bike shop, plotting to defy gravity and conquer the wind. Yet that obsessive kind of world-changing belief is a force that drives you to solve a problem, to find the breakthrough--a force that drives you to bet everything on a fragile wing or a new idea. It was a force that led the Wright brothers to invent, single-handedly, each of the technologies they needed to pursue their dream."
"A pair of self taught engineers working in a bicycle shop, they made the world a forever smaller place."
