Do you think something big is in store for Dec. 21, 2012? So do several local businesses, which have scheduled ‘end of the world’ events to coincide with the turning of the Mayan calendar this Friday.
Wired Coffee hosts a book signing with Chesterfield author T.W. Fendley, whose science-fiction work “Zero Time” mixes Mayan prophecy with time travel. Meet her at the Sunset Hills coffee shop from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., 3860 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
Fendley doesn’t think doomsday is headed our way, but does believe the date indicates the beginning of a new time cycle.
“It started out as a book signing, but I wanted it to be more than that, because it really is a time to celebrate,” she said. “I got to thinking, ‘What can we do to make it more festive?’”
She’s enlisted the talents of spiritualist Rhonda Leifheit and musician John MacEnulty. Leifheit will be speaking on Mayan principles, including the “galactic alignment.” Former conductor MacEnulty will lead a drum circle “resonating with the new energies of the changing times,” according Fendley’s website.
