The Number 8

The last lap is usually the most strenuous in long distance running.

Less than one week to go and yesterday we did a full run through of the whole program without too many breaks..

I must say I'm looking forward to this. Number 8 is one of the most gifted poets, spoken word artists, hiphop MC, yet one of the most down to earth people.

Hopefully we should be seeing some of his poetry online, especially after the 8th.

Number8 says:

"I go by the stage name Number8. This is because I appreciate the fact that it is humanly impossible to be perfect, (perfection being symbolized by the number 7), so I’m chasing after perfection like number 8. This is not to say that I’m greater than God (Perfection), but rather implying that IF ever I am to become perfect, I must decrease (John 3:30 “…I must decrease”)."

Well, Biblically, the Number 8 stands for new beginnings.
