Here’s a quick game to play every so often with friends old or new.
Get each person to think of a time and place in history they’d be curious to live in.
Ask them to describe what’s appealing about it, what they’d be doing, and how they’d be showing up in the world.
It may be becoming a wild dancer at New York’s Studio 54, slinging guns like Billy the Kid, sending people into space in 1969, or operating as an opulent senator in Ancient Greece.
The answers may tell you far more than you expect.
And as a bonus, you know just which book to give them as a gift.
