Alive Again

sunrise3

Alas, the world didn’t end, as some thought it would.  Or, maybe it did, and we lowly mortals just haven’t figured it out yet.  I have to concede that one of the geneses for this blog was the lore surrounding the Mayan calendar.  But, I realized long ago that every day I wake up is a good day, even if I feel like crap.  It’s another chance to make a difference in my life.  As a writer, I love exploring.  My lifelong battles with timidity and depression prevented me from doing much of what I wanted.  I’d always followed other people’s paths; hoping to get something for myself.  Then, I started creating my own trails.

So yes, it is a new universe – at least for me.  And, I certainly hope for everyone else.  Everybody has a story and most everyone is worth something.  The world didn’t implode quite like some had anticipated – perhaps expected.  Then again, the ancient Mayans didn’t consider Leap Years.  They devised more exacting calendars than their Judeo-Christian counterparts.  Science is still learning more about them and other archaic societies.  That’s what intrigues me about our world – there’s always something new to discover.  No one should ever stop learning and exploring.  If you do, you might as well just die.

But, damn!  Now, I have 2 tons of chocolate and 50 cases of bottled water!  Oh, well!  Life’s too short to be conservative!

  1. Glad you’re still with us.

  2. 🙂 I saw a quote earlier this week that said “If Mayans were so good at predicting the future, there would still be Mayans.” Hmmm….
    Glad you got some chocolate out of the deal!
