Mayan Doom and Fiscal Cliffs

We survived the night. Now that we’ve put the Mayan prophecy to rest, we only have the fiscal cliff to worry about. To hear the public talk no one can explain exactly what this cliff is or what it entails. We might ask the lemmings who seem to go over cliffs all the time.

I don’t want to die poor. Actually, dear Mayans, I don’t want to die.
But the fiscal cliff would have me plunge without my money as accompaniment, little though the coins are they would be taken by taxes,
higher prices, etc. My spiritual treasures would go as well.

Must termination always be threatened to make life in the moment a real
adventure? I am not sure I subscribe to that idea. Like the car in
Thelma and Louise I want to remain airbourne over the canyon.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
