NaBloPoMo: Make Centuries from Now?

Loose leaf earl grey tea

Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is, "What are 5 things you hope they keep making hundreds of years into the future?"

Believe it or not, I had to rack my brains for this. So, let me see here...hmmm...

Well, let's say in keeping with the theme of 3D from yesterday's post, how about this 3D 'magic pen'?! I just discovered it tonight on social media. (It only took me about 3/4 hour to find it on Facebook while getting distracted by videos and comments! And afterwards, not before, I googled it which I should have done in the first place to save myself a lot of time!) ... see it in motion here below:

I would say another item is books. I love to turn the pages of a book, not flicker on an e-book on Kindle or the like. And I also love to examine the front and backcovers of books in colour, though I imagine that technology isn't too far off if it isn't already in existence.

Organic earl grey tea and also organic cream earl grey tea would be something I would certainly welcome centuries from now! ;) My favourite tea I could drink anytime of the year, though of course, particularly during the colder months of fall to spring. And if I could find that delicious darjeeling tea that I used to drink so many years ago that I loved - haven't found since - that one too! ;)

Tree walkways and tree suspension bridges
. These exist in Vancouver, British Columbia (BC) at the University of BC (video above), and also at Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver (video below). These walkways or bridges take you near or above the canopy of trees overlooking the horizon, perhaps seeing as a monkey or bear climbing a tree might see, from above, a breathtaking view. And it's fun! ;)

Speaking of which, that brings to mind ziplines. Though I haven't tried one yet, I bet it is a lot of fun: scary and exciting at the same time. In other words: thrilling! ;) The following is in Whistler, BC.

Obvious things such as iphones (which I do not have) and computers might be a given; however, with technology changing so fast, who knows what the future will hold in these areas!

I'm sure there are lots of things I could add to this list that may be more practical (and possibly boring), though my mind refuses to go that route. So I hope you've enjoyed the ride I've taken you on on this post! ;)

What are five things you would love to see centuries from now?


  1. Not sure if you got my comment Ell :)

    I was saying I want something like the Jetsons centuries from now !

    1. Oh, love that idea Naba! Flying above traffic and landscapes in bubble-spaced aircraft: how fun! :) <3

  2. Books and museums would top my list! And hope the technological advances keep happening at a great pace! :)

    1. Yes, books and museums are a great idea Shilpa! :) I actually would hope that the technological advances might slow down a bit for a challenging to keep up, don't you think? ;) <3

  3. Books and tea for me. Loved your interesting list and the pictures.

    1. Sounds great to me Sulekkha as I love them both too! :) <3 Thanks, though too bad not all the videos seem to work.
