Mayan O Mayan, It's a Wonderful Day

According to the Mayan Calendar, today...

Well, today is not supposed to be. 

We were all going to perish in fire or ice or some combination thereof. 

Have you looked outside today? Here in Florida the winds are blowing and the sun is shining and it is a bit more seasonably chilly than the balmy weather we have had the past week or so, but pardon me if I say it...

We're still here!

The whole business of the Mayan Calendar has been a bugaboo for some for some time now. 

I wanted to consult the Mayans who made up that calendar, but guess what... They are no longer around. So here is the question. If the Mayans knew so much, why didn't they manage to stick around till the last dog was hung? (To use a phrase that Brantley and I do not much like but that gets the point across).

It is a cautionary tale for those who predict this or that dire event or who love to focus on a dystopian future, to say again...

We're still here!

So with apologies to Uncle Remus and his famous ditty:

"Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zip-a-Dee-A!
Mayan O Mayan, it's a wonderful day!"

Take a moment to enjoy it, won't you?
