Born today, you are such a highly creative individual that you may, at times, seem to exist in a wholly fantastical world of your own creation, free from the burdens carried by other mere mortals. You are able to roam unchecked through a varied and colorful landscape that is made up of bits and pieces of your dreams and fantasies and random components provided by the people you choose to let into your life. You are highly protective of your methods, style and environment; you don't let just anyone into your inner sanctum for the simple reason that you don't trust others to leave intact that which you so deeply cherish -- the world as you would have it.
While all of this may make it sound as though you are utterly incapable of being realistic, the truth is that you know very well how to live in the real world. Even better, you are able to influence and change it when you choose to do so, and you are determined to leave it a better place.
Also born on this date are: Sir Alfred Hitchcock, filmmaker; Fidel Castro, Cuban leader; Annie Oakley, sharpshooter; Bert Lahr, actor; Danny Bonaduce, actor; Dan Fogelberg, singer; George Shearing, pianist; Debi Mazar, actress; Don Ho, singer; John Slattery, actor; Sebastian Stan, actor; Philippe Petit, tightrope walker.
