I believe 12/12/12 would be a "compounded" date.
BUT, in honor of the compounding / repetitive nature of the date, I decided to honor both the date and myself by creating a new platform of life.
I want to live without burden, without disruption and distraction. I do not want to be marginalized by fractional thinking and politics. I want to create a "back in the day" ambiance in my head. I want to go the Farmer's Market on Saturday and enjoy where I live. I want to walk down Main Street and appreciate that there are very few places left like this on the planet. I want to keep a balance in my life between work and my wife screaming at me to do things I don't want to do. I want my kids to live their own life so that I can live mine (except on Holidays when I want them to visit ... and other days when I miss them and they miss me). I want to see the turkeys in my back yard, and the deer walking down the street. I want to drench in the books at the Pleasanton Library even though they don't give out plastic carry-out bags (now, I drop my armful of books walking to my car). I want to live like a king, even though my mortgage is hefty.
I pledge myself all these things (and more at a later date) because it's a good place to be on 12/12/12
