It's just after 6 AM in Thailand. Everything looks OK. Sky is lightening in the SouthEast, where I see a bright Star -- I hope it's just Venus and not some Mayan Goddess-Star of Destruction. Wife and daughter seem to be going about their usual morning activities, as though we were all still alive. Exception is son, who'd be up and playing computer games, but is instead sleeping in. That is calendar-related but not Mayan: Friday is not one of the days that he's allowed to play computer games.
In the time it took me to type above paragraph, SouthEastern sky has brightened a bit more. I'm turning optimistic!
