MAYAN BUCKET LIST
December 21, 2012. I hope no one is getting too nervous, but the end of the world is at hand. Of course that depends on who and what you believe. New Age mystics have been speculating since 1975 that there would be a global "transformation of consciousness" due to a galactic alignment.
“Others suggest that the 2012 date marks the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, an interaction between Earth and the black hole at the center of the galaxy, or Earth's collision with a planet called "Nibiru".” (See 2012 phenomenon from Wikipedia”)
As for me, I am looking forward to a well-deserved winter break from school, starting ironically on the 21st, and celebrating Christmas and New Year’s with family and friends.
But what if we were on the verge of the Apocalypse? Ya’ never know. What would you do? What would your bucket list be? Here’s some things I’d like to do before the crack of doom:
- Make a successful parachute jump.
- Get a short story published (not enough time to write that novel).
- Spend a week on a movie set taking it all in.
- See Mount Rushmore and Devil’s Tower.
- And while I am headed in that direction, meet and kiss a pixie.
That’s my bucket list. What is yours? I’ll leave you with a comment from one of my students today when I brought up the topic of the world ending. He said, “Well at least there won’t be anymore poverty.” Don’t you just love silver linings?
