Lucky number 8


I’m not superstitious, but if I believed I had a lucky number, it would be eight. Eight and I have a long history. I was born on the eighth day of October, the eighth month of the Roman calendar. Some of my most significant personal milestones have happened in years that end with eight (like graduating from the hell that was high school and starting my life as an adult).

It’s more than that, though: eight is pleasing to the eye. 8. Look at it. It’s the only number besides zero that’s symmetrical from side to side. And it has an alluring, curvaceous shape to it—a fertile form, ripe with possibilities.

I have this feeling that today is going to be a great day….
