Living in Honduras or Guatemala as a foreigner is sometimes hard, mostly fun and never boring. This Blog is about more than just the oddities of my years in the not-so tranquil, cobble-stoned town of Copán Ruinas and, more recently, Antigua Guatemala. Hence Serendipity, the gift of finding without seeking…

The Maya Calendar For Sale
Whereas Copán is
getting ready for the beginning of a “New Maya Era” –sort of, at least- I have
been ready for quite a while!
There’s quite a
discussion going on whether the “end” of the Maya calendar is being used and
abused for commercial reasons at the expense of the living Maya, with some very
good arguments for and against.
Interesting as it
is, I’m not going there, because, yes, me too! I admit it; I’m trying to make a
buck here! And YOU are the one who can help me do that!
I sell all sorts
of Maya calendar glyphs, mostly of the sacred Tzolk’in calendar, but I also use
the solar calendar Haab and the Long Count (of which the cycle of 134 Baktuns
ends on December 21 (or 23, whichever correlation you use).
I design personalized
digital glyphs for $5 only, or paint the desired glyph with whatever materials
on whatever surface. Big, small, cheap or insanely expensive, everything is
possible! I can do whole family portraits according to the Maya calendars, or
make small paints as a wedding souvenir. The sky is the limit!
