I've read that it's common in times of uncertainty that errant emotion can lead one, or many, to feelings and thoughts of doom or cataclysm.
What we see happening around the world with war, disease, and political positions becoming more delineated, may lead some to a general feeling of dissatisfaction with the present.
This only produces a climate conducive to change, which is what I'm all about, and I really can see how the actions of the people will ensure that the change is for the better.
With the level and frequency of communications among people worldwide, these changes are going to come about swiftly, and that is undoubtedly necessary, as we have a great deal of work to do.
As far as something big happening soon, well, you never know. I live just about right on top of that SuperCaldera, and I hope that's not the one, 'cause I'm really enjoying myself here.

I'm not saying this is portentious or anything, but I had a very interesting and even more terrifying dream last night. It was 4:23 in the morning, and I was lying there, blissfully dreamless, when, out of nowhere, this blinding white light enveloped me; I couldn't see, and it burns my retinas just thinking about it.
You know that feeling you get when you're hit with a lot of electromagnetic radiation, like when you can 'feel' a TV being on in the next room, even though the sound is off? Well, I got that about a hundredfold about three seconds later. It was enough to make my heart consider stopping for a moment.
I woke up panting and sweating... the whole affair lasted about five seconds. Now, nuclear warfare has not crossed my mind in the least in these past few days, but that dream sure as hell felt like what would probably happen if a nuke went off a couple miles from my position...
