The Uncount – The Unraveling of Life Purpose

Posted by on 12 Dec 2012 in Essay, Memoir | 8 comments

For those of you keeping score, I’m taking liberties with what many have interpreted as the end of the Long Count, the Mayan calendar that completes next week on Solstice.  Mostly, I’m taking inventory of events in my life and coming to fierce conclusions about what they mean, or unmean, as the case may be.
