There's been much ado concerning the end of the current 5125 year cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar on December 21, 2012. Legend has it that the first of seven Mayan prophecies refers to the last 20 years of this cycle as the 'The Time of No-Time.' But far from being the end of the world, evidently the end of the 'Time of No-Time' is party time! Ancient Future is celebrating with the End of the Beginning of the Ancient Future Sale! From now until 12/21/2012, the latest four Ancient-Future.Com releases are on sale and a complimentary promo copy of World Without Walls by Ancient Future featuring the song 'End of the Beginning' will be sent to anyone who spends $51.25 or more on music from the Ancient-Future.Com store. http://www.ancient-future.com/pr_2012_end_of_the_beginning.html

Each time I listen to "Quiet Fire", I am amazed all over again how it never gets old. I still remember looking at the vinyl album cover many years ago. One album that stands out as an important piece of my life's soundtrack.
