I figure based solely on my age, that I’m about halfway through my life’s story, give or take a few pages. I’m grateful that I have ownership of the rest of my story. In the early chapters of my book, I was, to some extent, following someone else’s storyline–that’s just a natural part of growing up. For the rest of my story, however, I am the author, creating my own storyline. I choose which characters co-star in my story, and which adventures fill the pages. I know there will still be some plot twists beyond my control, but I find myself looking forward to savoring each new page, uncharacteristically in no rush to get to the end of the book.

My answer is totally a product of the digital age. In an analog world, eleven eleven slides right by me unnoticed. Digital clocks are really the only reason I have a favorite hour…I still remember the first time I saw 11:11 on my very own alarm clock, and how completely right it looked. I suspect it appeals to the obsessive-compulsive side of my personality, as does my second favorite time, twelve thirty-four. Twelve thirty-four gets even better fifty-six seconds in if the clock has a six-digit display…12:34:56 rocks!
