I wake up in the morning and the sky is as dark as pitch. This picture is out my window at almost 8am. I thought Minnesota was dark in the winter nope. I go somewhere to get out of the dark of Minnesota and frankly the cold and here I am nearly at the same geographical location and worse it seems. I am at the top of a hill and that is still the picture at 8am. Ah the dark.
I am amused at the dark and it’s attempt to keep us down not knowing where we are going or having the light to figure it out. When I have to get up in the morning for class, thank you God it is only 2 mornings a week, I have to check the clock, check the clock, check the clock, the is no outside sign of the impending light of day, you just know it will be dark, get up and yes it’s 7am. Though I would lay money on every time I look at that clock it is wrong, wrong, no way it’s 7am, 3 am for sure, check the clock on my phone, yup 7am, pitch black, 7:30am pitch black, finish your homework, make some coffee, it’s going to be light eventually.
It’s how I feel right now about so many people and organizations spreading fear of upcoming doom for 2012 and beyond. Come on people, snake oil sales men have been around since the beginning of time and every single time chicken little proclaimed the sky was falling the sun came up the next day. Isn’t it comforting to know there is a higher power in charge. Really, if it were up to naysayers we would be so dead so long ago, or in 1984, or 1999, or 2000, or or or or or….
