11/7/11

( in5d )

What I love about
the 11th month
in the 11th year
after the millennium
is that every day
for at least the first week or so
is a palindrome --
it gazes at itself in the mirror,
with little emotion,
but absolute equilibrium,
challenging each of us
to assume
the same composure -

11/1/11
11/2/11
11/3/11
11/4/11
11/5/11
11/6/11
11/7/11
11/8/11
11/9/11

- it's a narrow marching column,
like a count-down,
counting up --
to 

11/11/11

and then the perfect palindrome,
a beautiful balance to aspire to:

11/22/11

i agree. it's perfect.

ever since the first of the month...it's been a countdown to 11.11.11.

i feel like i should be doing something different...special...that day. i better hurry up and figure it out...it's almost here!

(and the number which seems to come up for me...a lot...over and over...throughout my life is the number 6. 11 = 1+1=2 so, you know what i'm getting at...11+11+11 = 2+2+2=SIX!!)
