Ever feel like you were born in the wrong time? My wife says I’ve been a cranky old man for the entire time she’s known me. We met at 20, so my crankiness must have started early.
I ask because every time I see anything from the 40s through the 60s, I flat out love it. I love the design of the era. Everything just seems like it was simpler then. Each time I see something from those decades, I instantly want to go back and live it. Which is really funny for me to say because I’m so plugged in to technology today to do what I do. However, at the core of everything I do is a creativity that can adapt to any level of technology. I think I could have been equally creative with the tools available in 1959.
Maybe it’s because I was born and spent my first 11 years in West Texas. Everything there feels like it’s about two decades behind the times. God help them, that means they are just discovering parachute pants in my home town.
Either way, I feel like I belong somewhere in between the 40s and 60s. It just feels right some how.
