Outside my window, a bird trills, not a quick cheerful chirp to welcome the morning, but one of agitation. His world has been disrupted. I stand from my desk and brush the billowy curtain aside to take a peek.
Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, a popular historical drama in the 1990s, often produced poignant and meaningful episodes that made people take a long, hard look at their beliefs. Much of the time, the focus was on racism and bigotry between the white man and the Native Americans (the Cheyenne), but there was one episode that was so powerful, so heart-wrenching that it resonates to this day. So strong is the lesson in this episode that it should be required viewing in schools across America.
It's been nineteen years since Joe Lando and Jane Seymour played the roles that won the hearts of millions of fans around the world. As Sully and Dr. Michaela Quinn, the duo ignited a passion for historical drama and romance that still sizzles today. In fact, the fan base continues to grow as more viewers find the series which recently aired all six seasons on Amazon Prime but is now available on Philo.
With so many options to binge nowadays, it's difficult to know what to watch. Maybe you don't just like one type of show. It can't be all reality or science fiction shows for you. I'm the same way. I mix up my binges all the time, but I have to admit that 1993 debuted some of the best bingeable shows that I will still watch today. Check them out; maybe you'll want to catch them, too!
One day, though I don't know when, the world will return to normal. It might not be the normal we once knew, but it will still offer us chances we don't have locked at home. And when that day comes, I can just imagine all the empty driveways in the neighborhoods around my town. Mine will be one of them.
There's a place I've been wanting to visit for quite awhile. There won't be any strangers there because everyone you meet will become a friend. No car horns will be honking because patience will be plentiful. Derogatory names won't be used as words will be filtered through a veil of compassion, and people would rather sit and talk awhile than to waste precious energy and time arguing about something that won't matter in twenty years.
