Preparations for 2012

16 02 2009

On these rainy days of winter here in San Diego, not much to do, but reflect, a time to begin contemplation and preparation.  This is also the time when many cultures celebrate their new year.

Coming in March is the Mexica New Year and there will be celebrations in various places.  One that I frequented was in San Jose and their event is March 14-15 at NHU. (future blog will have a flyer).

While we are coming to this new year (10 house) in the Mexica Calendar, we are also aware of the Mayan calendar (see future blog) and the year 2012.  This is also the same year as the next P&D  Journey.

Today is February 16 2009 and the run is to begin in May of 2012, ONLY A LITTLE MORE THAN  THREE YEARS FROM NOW!!!

If any of you remember this years Journey and the amount of work that was put in, you know that every minute counts.

In preparation for this we are beginning talks on when and where we should meet.

Talks have begun about meeting in Mexico, Canada, U.S. and El Salvador.  The soonest one is a possible one year reunion to be held in May, the location is yet to be determined.

Here in San Diego, we have already visited people at Pala reservation and individually we have visited with other reservations.  We are also planning to meet with the Coahuila Reservation to do a presentation soon and possible organize a short run from the reservation.

PLEASE BEGIN TALKS IN YOUR COMMUNITIES ABOUT PREPARATIONS FOR THE YEAR 2012.  Another idea is to organize a run in your community to prepare the youth for the work that is to come.
