warning: this is post of ramblings. the kind of things floating around in my head right now.
I'm a pretty superstitious person, unfortunately.
For a long time, I would avoid cracks in the sidewalk,
and worry every time I would spill some salt.
I mean, my poor mother! And, really, I did not need years of bad luck.
don't even get me started on how many times i've "knocked on wood",
or made a wish going through tunnels-
and, how can I fail to mention 11:11.
I can't help it, i'm a sucker for these wives (or is it wise?) tales.
You can imagine how I feel today,
the day before the Mayans predict the world would end.
For years, i've done a mental countdown to this very moment in time.
will the world actually end?
who really knows.
or does someone know out there, but isn't sharing with the rest of us.
Either way, if tomorrow is the end, then so be it.
I feel I have lived a very blessed life.
I have seen, done, experienced, challenged, and adventured.
I am, however, interested and slightly horrified to see what the world will be like 100 years from now-
there already are 7.2 billion people,
and i've seen predictions that the population will reach between 10-15 billion my the end of the century.
All I will says about this is, scary-
yes for man, but more for nature.
To be super hypocritical, because I know, it is-
my biggest sadness should I die tomorrow, is not having children.
or, one child, since i'll probably stop at one and adopt the rest.
but honestly, to be a mom is what I was put on this earth to do.
To be taken before I can make this happen would just suck.
This, and, I hope it happens fast. I mean, that would be ideal.
And, I would definitely regret spending so much of my life worrying about trivial things like weight.
If only I could remember this and carry it with me should my days continue past tomorrow.
But, I already plan on making my last supper one of my favorites, mac n cheese with a side of beets and asparagus.
ah, cheese. I hope there is a lot of cheese wherever I go in the afterlife.
what are your thoughts on the predicted apocalypse?
What would you miss most?
For all of us, let's hope the Mayans were very very wrong.
with that said, however, we should also start to think of what we need to do to keep our World habitable for not just man, but all other creatures,
big and small.
what can we do to make Earth a better place for everything.
Honestly, I have no doubt that man will survive.
It is not man that I worry about, it is everything else.
sure, I don't like the prospect of death.
not because of death itself, but more the mystery of how and when I will go.
death is scary, ugly, mean, and sad.
but, I also know that everything will die eventually.
I guess what i'm trying to say is this-
death is a part of life. there is no escaping it.
but while we are living, it is our duty to protect ALL living creatures.
I am going to end this tangent now,
mostly out of the fear that I offend someone, or that my words be twisted-
but, of course, interpret as you will.
