Happy Palendrome Day!
Particularly auspicious as it is the one day in the year when the British (?) date format dd:mm:yy is synchronised with the crazy back-to-front US date format mm:dd:yy. A rare day!
I just can't wait for - wait for it - 20:09:2009!!
Maybe we should all get married, a la The Moonies!
Oh wait...I'm already married!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
