Worlds without end…

My first published book, SEDUCED BY SHADOWS, opened with the phrase, “The end is nigh.” I even made a T-shirt for my mom with the line because — as apocalypticans have always known — it has such a nice ring. So I feel like I’m obligated to write a post on today’s non-doomsday. (Or the “at least not quite yet” doomsday.)

But I really don’t have much to say that hasn’t been said more amusingly by others.

By ABC News:

And by Mashable, collecting funny apocalyptic tweets.

Boy, are we all gonna look silly when the world really does end.

Still, since it’s the end of the year (if not the world) this seems like a good time to pause and reflect. I have a lot to do with the start of the new year, so I only have a few days to catch my breath and get ready for the next sprint. I’m going to make the most of it.

And that’s one good thing about looming endings: They remind us to make the most of things.

One thought on “Worlds without end…

  1. Love the weather forecast. I hadn’t seen that one before. I figure Dec. 26-30th is enough of a looming ending for me every year. Like you, I use that time to reflect, redirect, and recommit. I always enter the new year with optimism that things will be better, that there will be more days in a week and more hours in a day, and that I will take advantage of them.

    Actually, I think all this would work better if New Years day was at the Summer Solstice instead. I’m sure I can write someone and get that easily changed. 🙂
