Mayan Calendar

Most of you would probably look at this image and it is just another Mayan calendar harbinger of doom for this year but for me it is something else...

About 13 years ago (has it really been that long?) I moved in with a certain man friend who shall remain nameless.  He had this Mayan calendar that was made of metal.  I decided that I hated it because it had a big dent in it... and, well, I am ashamed to say, I threw it away.  I am really amazed now that I look back on it that he wasn't livid.  I mean... I totally would have dumped me.  Then again... around the same time period he barfed on my face while I was in a deep REM sleep.  So maybe we were even?  Regardless I still feel bad about the whole thing and recently decided to make him a new Mayan calendar as a peace offering.  Thanks to him for his friendship!  I am so grateful.

Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.
