A Meditation In Ink: Meditation 11.19.18

I am thankful to have been born when I was.  Now is the best time to be alive, according to scientific research.

Today I read at IFLScience that scientists have decided upon which period of time was the worst.  It was the period of 536 to 636 CE.  There were some severe weather patterns that caused widespread famine, disease, and mayhem.  This was the period of the Goths, Carthage, the earthquake that destroyed Beirut, etc, etc, etc. 

Why though was this period worse than any other?  There was another, similar, climate change during the 1250ish-1350ish period.  Several empires also collapsed, famine was common, and the plague cropped up.

In any case, they are not now and now is amazing.

xoxo a.d.
