Alive Again


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!

December 16, 2012 – 5 Days Until Baktun 12


Okay, this is it, folks – the last week of the countdown.  At this point, there’s no more advice I can give you.  Hopefully, you’re fully prepared for the dramatic end of this Baktun and the start of the next one.  Just remember it will be simultaneously cataclysmic and horrific.  Wind, rain, dust, hail, lightning – all of nature’s elements – will come towards you at once.  Promise your soul now to Mother Earth and Father Sky!  And, safeguard that water and chocolate!
