Sharing my thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Thanks for the link! I love history but yes, sometimes books can be extremely over-detailed. Clearly you're a "Big Picture" person!
I hated history in school. They gave me facts but little else. I need to know how people felt at the time. I want to know how the events we now call history actually affected them. In wars both sides knew they were right so how did they acclimate to the outcome? I now read a lot of biographies about the times in history I want to know about now and things are becoming more clear to me.
Thank you for your comments.
