Today is the deadline I imposed on myself for the final edits of the book. What better moment, I figured, for sitting back in satisfaction about the thing I nurtured as my third-born, than the cosmic alignment and the day we all become Gods!
But I think I was wrong, at least in part. In the new age of enlightenment deadlines are ludicrous and creation – of any kind – is never complete.
Four minutes after midnight on 21-12-12, it wasn’t closure I enjoyed but rather a crystalline view of the work still locked in my computer and the discovery of a way to push the whole thing from OK to Great. In other words, last night I ‘suddenly’ saw the simple thing I could do to the manuscript that will finally put it on a level it had not yet achieved – and has now allowed me to say to you, ‘I am a writer worthy of your shelves!’
Today marks the end of the Maya calendar and it is the day I launch my website, where you will find everything you might want to know about me, my work and how you can be a part of it all.
I could have launched the site on the first of the year, of course, as was initially the plan, but today seems more appropriate and aesthetically significant. If today marks the end of time, then let it also be the day I come to you as the author I worked in earnest to become.
It’s been quite a trip getting here. I have tried on many hats along the way but this is the one I intend to wear from now on, the hat I have been shaping and molding into a perfect fit for years and which will serve me faithfully as we venture into this new era.
They say that all things will transform today; that reality and our place in the universe will never be what it once was. We have closed off the age of utility and accumulation and will now be stepping into an age in which currency will not be based on gold or oil, but the karma we can collect by giving. Happiness will no longer be measured by the height of the pile of presents under the Christmas tree, but by the simple fact we are looking at a Christmas tree in the first place. In the end, it’s also cheaper that way.
Happy transformations and thanks for dropping in!
