Thanksgiving Day 17: Sweet Seventeen

Seventeen has been my favourite number ever since I can remember. There's something so musical about it -- its perfect balance of syllables, the melody of it and the way it ends on a ringing tone. It's strong but delicate. Songs have been written in honour of it. It's a number on the cusp of maturity. A prime prime number.

And today is a very special seventeen, because it marks seventeen squared for a special couple: on October 17, seventeen years ago, they married.

So happy anniversary, R 'n' B (even their acronym speaks of two aspects of music converging to make one amazingly catchy musical style!) and may the next seventeen be even sweeter!
