I didn’t know that palindrome, something that reads the same forward as it does backward, originated in the early 17th century from the Greek word palindromos, which literally means “running back again.” And it’s the same in spanish “el palíndromo” so the plural would be the same as the original Greek word – los palíndromos!! Cool!!
Huh – what a nice little number. And there aren’t many palindromic dates left until the ’20’s because we only have 31 days, not 41, 51, 61, 71, 81 or 91, days in our months. I hadn’t thought about that before. We’ve only got…. let me see….. June – nope, 30 days…. July – yep, 31 days, 31.7.13…. August, yep – oooohhhh and a nice one 31.8.13 ’cause the 8 is so a nice palindromic like shape as well…… and then only September and November. So only 4 more palindromic days left for years and years and years!!!
So enjoy the day – do something balanced and the same as you did this morning – eat food, sleep, look at the lovely day, listen to the birds, lay an egg (Oh – you’re not a chook? Is an egg palindromic?? Can you “read” an egg?), do a handstand…..
