Born in a Different Era

Do you ever feel as though you were born in the wrong era?

I do not necessarily feel as though I was born in the wrong era, but there are definitely moments I wish I was born in a different era. The moments that I wish I was born in a different era usually revolve around the selfish desire of discovering something for myself - a new piece of land, and new cure, a new people.

Additionally, I think that life use to be less complex and governed more by necessity rather than desire, like the adage says - Desire is the mother of invention. Wait that does not sound quite right.

I realize though this is probably just a removed fanciful perspective and most people regardless of the era in which they live are trying to look for ways to make life easier and more efficient.

Please do not arrive at the impression that I am ungrateful for the advances and conveniences that are afforded me due to living in the current era, because I engage in almost all of them in some capacity. And, there are still new horizons to be discovered and life can be simplified, it just seems to take considerably more effort or maybe it just requires a change in how I look at things.
