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!
