I don't know if I'm getting old or what. It's not like I prefer traditional over everything else, but I'm getting tired of being castigated for liking traditional. I'm tired of having the name "fuddy duddy" and "staid" and "stuffy" being thrown at me like clumps of sticky mud.
So I'm going to say it - I LIKE traditional. I like traditional stuff, I like traditional worship, I like traditional dinner parties, I like traditional PTA meetings. I like contemporary/current trends in all sorts of things, but I'm not willing to throw the traditional out the window just because something new comes along.
I like antiques and I like Ikea. I think a person can like both - even in the same space.
EDITED: I used a politically charged phrase in the original post. I changed it. I will blog more about exactly what I mean by "traditional stuff" tomorrow. I did not mean what some of you thought I meant! Peace!
