Boy Turns 12 at 12:12 on 12/12/12

Hard to believe, but it's true. Kiam Moriya turned twelve years old today at 12:12pm on this day, the twelfth of December, 2012. According to Yahoo News, Kiam was born in Bronxville, New York, on December 12, 2000, at exactly 12:12 p.m.

What are the odds, right?  Apparently, he's one of thousands who share the rare, symmetrical birthday. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4 million babies were born in the U.S. in 2000. "Although the number of babies born daily would vary," AL.com noted, "the average would have been about 11,000 per day. Spread throughout the 1,440-minute day, that would be about eight babies in a given minute." Despite the fact that the statistics prove at least someone was born exactly twelve years ago this afternoon, most of Kiam's friends didn't believe him.

Here he is holding his birth certificate to prove his bizarre circumstance. "Most of them didn't believe me," Kiam said.

There hasn't been this much insistance to see a birth certificate since Obama became president.

Despite the skepticism, Kiam has been looking forward to this day for a long time. "It's like one minute out of a whole lifetime," Kiam said. "You know, it's all 12s." To celebrate, he requested Krispy Kreme donuts in the shape of a twelve, which sounds like a proper way to celebrate anything if you ask me. "Donuts are awesome," Kiam said. Yes they are, Kiam. Yes they are.

To add some more weird to this story, Kiam was born a month early. His mother's water broke and there he was. Doctors couldn't explain why he arrived when he did.

When asked what he thought about turning the big one-two, Kiam said it was "just cool," and, "When I'm turning twelve, it's going to be nothing but twelves."

Yahoo News reported that, as was the case with 10/10/10, and 11/11/11,  "12/12/12 is a popular date for event planners. Wednesday purposefully was chosen for the World Day of Interconnectedness, an all-star benefit for victims of Superstorm Sandy at Madison Square Garden and a giant group meditation in New Zealand.

It will also be a popular date to get married. According to the American Academy of Wedding Professionals, 12/12/12 is the last chance this century for couples to get hitched on a date with the same three digits. Wedding registries around the world are reporting a spike in the number of nuptials planned." -

Dancing Away From Illness And Onto The Stage

The hall lights dim…..a hush comes over the audience … the command "places everyone" is given… there is a palpable stillness in the air as the first notes of the opening piece float out of the speakers and hover above the stage…. the curtain rises with a whir … the lights come up… its time …

These are the moments a performer lives for. The hours of solitary sweat and toil practicing their craft in sparse, small rooms, are the dues required for the joy of putting their skill and craft out there for an audience hungering for something special and moving.
