Numbers

I love numbers...oh don't get me wrong- not in the typical left brain sense! I am SO right brain that numbers to me are either something I HAVE to pass along to my bookkeeper or they are viewed as just shapes. They have no meaning in this "visual-3-D" brain of mine. It can be a blessing and a curse...but no matter I have lived with it my whole life and have adjusted in this right-handed world we live in!

So where do numbers fit into my life?? I think I like them because of what they mean to me emotionally and creatively...such as...

These three pots I have under my coffee table in my home...
3 THREE- for the three of us- Mark, Leslie and Issy...all happy in a row- a family of little pots!
5- FIVE-my favorite number (next to 3)
5- the day Mark and I were married in November
5- as in fingers on a hand- the way I make my mark in the world with my hands-magic!
5- in my studio address, my studio phone number, my unit number here at ROotie and even my storage unit for ROotie- 5 IS magic!!
5- the tile I have in my house...
6- SIX- a good dinner party group- enough to make it interesting and still intimate
6- napkin rings...fun times with family and friends!
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Love these- all numbers...my little box of Japanese stamps!! fun & cute!
And bless my husband's Left Brain Soul for living with me and my ways for all these years!!
