End of the World or End of the Year?

Today is the last day of the calendar year. The calendar my friends and I use.

A couple of weeks ago it was the end of the long count Mayan calendar. Most of my friends don’t use that one.

It’s quite natural to think about closing things out, cleaning things up, making lists of new behaviors to start, and so forth, on the last day of the year.

Why is that?

We could do it any day of the year, and, if those changes are beneficial and we stick to them, it would be just as meaningful on an arbitrary day as on a day near the end or beginning of a new cycle.

It seems a tad immature to me that we need the artifice of a calendar demarcation to inspire us to contemplate changing our lives for the better.

Enough pontificating…I have a list to polish…
