Okay, so I admit I get caught up in apophenia, a cool word which means that people attach meaning to random patterns. And I do think the fact that today is 11-11-11 is cool. So, this morning at 11:11 on 11:11:11, I smiled… just because.

I love the number eleven, I always have. I liked wearing it on my sports jerseys because I thought the number eleven was thinning. The first musical I ever did was Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Joseph was the eleventh of twelve children). Two of my favorite sitcoms: M*A*S*H and CHEERS both ran eleven seasons. I can go on and on with fairly useless facts about the number: one of my favorite sports, field hockey, has eleven players on the field. Eleven is the first palindrome prime number. World War I ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

I’m a big believer in staying positive, seeing the glass half full, blah, blah blah…. And on the one day in my lifetime that is chock full of my favorite number… I say life is good.
