This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday   I have chosen reliques which is an older word meaning relics.

I love history, genealogy, and reliques. I have seen some really old pieces of history like Newgrange. Some reliques I own like letters from my great great grandfather. One thing that bothers me about history is how it can change with time. Our reference to events changes as we change and in a way that changes the reliques. I like reading old newspapers at newspapers.com. There I can try to get into the mind of those who lived then, but even then I am still reading the papers with my own mindset.

There are so many things that should be simple that are not because of perspective. I remember being told in school to put myself in the place of another to try to gain their perspective. That is much harder now than then, maybe.
