Born today, you know how to give your all to any endeavor you undertake, and you're never one to hold back when given the chance to express yourself through your work. Indeed, while you may be something of a mystery even to those who know you well personally, you are much more of an open book professionally, and everyone who works with you will develop a pretty accurate sense of who you really are.
It is likely that you will do things that are remembered long after you are merely a memory -- and yet much of what you do in life will die with you, for it is not the stuff of lasting memories. Indeed, many of your own favorite accomplishments, those that mean the most to you, will be fleeting -- the kinds of things that even you enjoy and forget as you move on to other things.
Also born on this date are: Coolio, rapper; Jerry Garcia, singer and musician; Tempestt Bledsoe, actress; Francis Scott Key, poet; William Clark, explorer; Herman Melville, author.
