|A very cold radiator.|
|Old, non-working boiler with all the pipes.|
|A vintage gas fireplace insert with candles.|
|Beautiful, yet ice cold radiator|
|Victorian teapot with a nice steaming mug of tea and milk from my refrigerator.|
So what does this say about us? Could we survive the conditions our ancestors found normal? Would we quickly adjust? I like to think so. I think we would get along just fine, but I also think we would long for our modern conveniences. We would realize how much we took them for granted. I might enjoy my charming old house and collecting Victorian teapots and furniture, and I might often wish for a simpler time with no televisions or blackberrys, but today I am grateful I live in a time that I can easily plug in a space heater to thaw my toes. Today I will give thanks for my water heater and my washing machine and my refrigerator, and all amazing devices that make my life easier.
