2007 was a prettier coloured year than this new year because "7"s are a darker prettier green than my olive/khaki coloured "8"s. If we all make it that long -- 2009 will be a nicely coloured year cuz "9"s are a nice maroon colour. Unfortunately "2"s put an orange haze over everything. (I am not a great fan of orange).
Perhaps some of you have colours for numbers too (and for letters, names, days of the week, months, seasons, years etc) If so, you may have something called Synaesthesia -- or "mixture of the senses. It is not a dysfunctional thing -- many VERY intelligent and creative people have synaesthesia. It doesn't cause any problems --in fact, many people feel blessed to have this added dimension to their senses. It comes in different forms -- some see colours and/or images for music, sounds, .... some see shapes etc when they taste things. Some, like me, see colours for numbers, letters and words.... and colours and shapes for days of the week.
Those of us that have colours for numbers and letters of the alphabet all have DIFFERENT colours -- and they are not neccessarily ones that we would choose. Many times they are VERY subtle shades that are hard to find on a colour wheel/chart. Just for fun - I think I will see how close I can get to finding the right colours for MY numbers/alphabet using the choices that come with this blog form:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P
Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Pretty good! Those colours are really pretty darn close to the ones I "see" in my mind for those letters. Many of my letters are black but I coloured them grey so they could show up on the black page. Now for the numbers:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Do any of you out there have colours for your letters and numbers too? Well, that was fun! Now -- off to bed for me. :-)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
