The Dragon looked behind, and looked ahead. "What now?" 
The Sea shrugged, and the Sky whispered, "Whatever."

Happy 2013, dear reader. May this year bring you joy and fortune.

When I was very young, I once read an article about a certain Mayan prediction about the end of the world in 2012. Easily frightened, I remembered that date and lived my life according to an idea, however ridiculous, that I would die in 2012.

Of course, common sense caught up with that idea and I knew for certain such a thing would not happen. But still, it was a relief when 2013 came around yesterday. Somehow my childhood fears are stronger than I thought.

Standing on the beach today, I realized that I had not made plans for beyond this moment. Big plans, I mean, like what my life would look like, whether I would have children; stuff like that. Today I realized that I have not looked beyond, and I found myself asking, What's next?

Obviously the sea, nor the sand, nor the clouds, answered. They care not about the choices of one person, and that was somehow comforting.

An overwhelming multitude of choices lays ahead of me. The universe offers, and all I need to do is decide.

Do I want to keep my current job, or go back to school?

Meditate on this, I will.
