The numbers have aligned: September 9 2009, 09 09 09, 9/9/2009, 09/09/09, 09.09.09
I was working at a Girl Scout camp in the northwoods on 7/7/77. I marked the date on the bottom of the largest plastic ice tea glass I owned, using permanent marker. It was a way to note the day and the unusual alignment of numbers in the day’s date. Using the cup over time reminded me that sometimes things in the universe align. Without any effort on our part, aside from showing up, things align. It gives hope somehow. I may be having a Garrison Keillor moment, so here are some practical(?) links for those of you who tend more toward the “S” on the Myers-Briggs inventory.
