I certainly was having an apocalyptic moment last winter.  Did it arrive?  Is our economic meltdown the latest sign?

So, are we in The Belly of the Whale?  

Have you seen Apocalypto?  I don't think Mel is a very good human, but he is a pretty good story teller.  I really like how Jaguar Paw's father admonishes him against letting fear into his heart or home.  He triumphs when he decides to be not afraid.  Don't let fear into your forest!
