Hi Yall,

I remember the 80s as being probably the last decade of innocence, if there ever was such a thing. By the time the 80s rolled around I had decided there was nothing to be gained by tapping into the world beyond. Most people didn't give anything psychical a second glance and the ones that did were easily seen as nuts. After all the 60s and 'hey, what's your sign' were behind us. It was okay it you saw a ghost but if you talked to one.. well, the paddy wagon wasn't too far away and mental hospitals were still up and running a booming business.

I learned not to tell people anything I gleaned in any way that was not concrete. If I slipped up and told someone something no one could have known I would simply say it was a random guess. In short I covered my asp.

But then, someone out there had other plans. I remember the sense of euphoria that sometimes flooded my being anytime there was talk of the future. I felt then that the years 2010 and beyond would bring a positive change. And I 'knew' that change would not be recognized till close or around 2020 and beyond. I could clearly see the world looking back at that time to the years between 2007 to about 2016/2018 and saying, 'yeah, that's when..'.

Where was the 2012 doom and gloom? It didn't exist back there in the 80s. In my neck of the woods the Mayan Calendar was just an old calendar and the Mayans were has-beens. Not till the 90s did that beast begin to raise its head, but ever so slowly. In the double-aught years (that would be 2000-2009 for you younger folks) came the cries of world doom. I could never get on board with that as my senses told me over and over there would be a time after when we would look back and see the truth.

In the 80s the world was just beginning to really talk about UFOs, Aliens, abductions, esp, telepathy, mutilations and all else 'other' on a grander scale. And most of that talk was ignored by the mainstream with the exceptions of those who actually experienced any thing. And a few jokers. And a few nut jobs. The internet wasn't available to the public then, people just didn't have home computers and if you did the net was virtually empty. But television made up for that. Check out the below link and scroll to the bottom of the page to see the lineup for any year you choose.

My grandmother always said one good turns deserves another. So now that we've passed 2012 and the world didn't end I'd like to ask what do you see as different? Do you really think more people are 'waking up/becoming more aware'? Do you really think the government has all the answers so every move they make is in relation to a conspiracy? Do you think we can do better than we have in the past?

Okay, enough rambling from me, your turn.
