Back in the 80s, I took Dr. Morris Massey's class "What You Are is Where You Were When," a program based on the idea that our historical past influences our value systems, and determines our adult behavior. I remember that there was a video and a quiz. And while all of the other baby boomers in the class had values consistent with the 60s and 70s, according to the quiz results, I had the values of the 1930s.
Perhaps my mother was right when she said I was born 40 years old, or perhaps I spent too much time with my aging aunts and uncles. I hadn't thought of the Massey class in years, but I was reminded of it when I saw one of the Art Journal Caravan prompts for this week, asking us to list ways in which we're old-fashioned.
The following art journal page was the result.
