Woody Allen’s film, “Midnight in Paris,” got me thinking: with it’s nostalgic theme of bygone eras and time travel, would I travel back in time if I could? If so, what era? When were times better than they are right now, at this moment?

As a woman, I can’t think of a better time to be alive. I have an African-American husband, a really great career and we remain childless by choice. I married my equal: we share everything from expenses to housework. Back in the “good ol’ days” when it was a white man’s world, none of my (and our) life choices would have been possible.

So to answer my own question of time travel, I wouldn’t travel to any era but the future. As a society, we will never be perfect. But we are more socially conscious than ever before. As a born optimist, I believe we are and will continue getting it right.
