If you could meet any one person, famous or not, that is no longer living, who would you meet? This can go as far back in time as your imagination will allow. Why would you want to meet them? How have they impacted your life in some way? (And if you can't decide on one-you can list as many as you want!) Were the a musical influence? A history influence? Someone particularly important to your family bloodlines for any reason?

Ok, well without me checking the link out (because my connection is kinda slow today) who is that? And why is that person significant to you?

Wow, that is really cool, and I can see why this person has such an influence on you! I will have to look further into her history, as it is indeed quite interesting. Thanks so much for your post.

When I've answered similar questions before I've usually said someone famous such as Malcolm X or Richard Burton but then it struck me what if they didn't live up to the image I had off them would I then regret this hypothetical meaning. So now I always say my paternal grandfather. He did a long time before I was born but on the few occassions my father has spoken about him he sounds like an utterly fascinating gentleman and so I would love to be able to meet him.

Someone from the past........... Humm, there is only one person that I would want to meet from the past. That would be the person that had the strongest influence on me. It was one of my Ex s that was an older gentleman. He taught me how to be strong and to have confidence. Also he taught me that I am the captain of my ship. I wouldn't mind meeting him again if for no other reason than just to say thank you. Happy mylot!

But obviously you had all ready met him? So really, you would just like to meet him again, because he passed away? There is no one in your family history or cultural history that you would have liked to meet?
