We have been hearing about it for years (OK, at least some of us have…) and now finally it is here. So will we all wake up in the morning? Will life self destruct quickly, slowly or ….not at all?!?!?!?! Will life change markedly or continue on business as usual?!?!? Curious minds want to know!
So what is this all about? The Mayans were a very sophisticated civilization. Some of the things they were known for included math, art, architecture and astronomical systems. They had a system of calendars…not just one as we conceive them. The Maya calendar was used in pre-Columbian Mesomerica and in many modern communities including Guatemala, and in Mexico in Veracruz, Oaxaca and Chiapas. They are known for their detail and accuracy.
Mayan scholars say that one calendar is ending and another is beginning. It is a time of transition and change but not the end of the world.
So if I were you…I wouldn’t go out over the next 24 hours and do something that you might really regret….cause if the world keeps spinning on Saturday…you are gonna have to live with it!
Happy winter solstice!
