weekly photo challenge: surprise

December 21, 2012 at 2:34 pm 12 comments

it’s early morning on december 21, 2012. i’m in the kitchen having my first cup of coffee. outside, the view is gloomy with forecast of heavy rains and winds. i don’t find it surprising, though. in the scheme of things, that’s what i should expect on the first day of winter in northern california.

but the big surprise is that i’m still alive. after all, didn’t the mayans predict that today is the end of the world? i’m hoping that i’m not the only survivor because that would be very sad indeed. is there anybody out there besides me? to all ye who can read this post, i present this picture no matter how grainy as proof of life. i’d appreciate hearing from you, too.
