Thoughts on Life, Art, Photography, Technology, Teaching and Travel…..
The word on the street (and internet) is the world is suppose to end tomorrow, at least according to the interpretation of the Mayan Calendar.
What if? What if it really was going to end? How would you spend your last day on this earth?
This past week has been filled with so much tragic and heart wrenching news creating political, social and cultural discord. The media continues to inundate us with tragic and sad news of mass murders, and of course it all has to be politicized by both sides of the political spectrum. The political discourse in America just keeps getting nastier, irrational and more vapid… and to what end?
But getting back to my question….What if the world was going to end tomorrow. Would you do anything differently? Would you seek forgiveness or make amends with someone you have alienated in your life?
Would you spend it with your family? Would you go on a mad dashed “bucket list” trip? Go skydiving? Bungee jumping? Drink heavily? Smoke pot? Go to church and pray for salvation?
What would you do?
What if we woke up each morning and acted as if it was our last day on earth? What if? I wonder if the world would be any different? I wonder of we would think a little more before verbally attacking someone we didn’t agree with? I wonder of we would be a little kinder, empathetic and understanding? I wonder if the world would be a better place?
