I love how you organized this final blog entry. It was very easy to navigate. So you have a strong affinity for the number 4; I do, too. I am not sure why, I don't see the color sequences or anything - but, I, too, share that similar number interest. Seeing colors for words and numbers is a pretty amazing phenomena. When you hear people's names, do you get colors for the names? I wonder if certain name utterances, connected with their respective color, shapes/alters your first opinion of the person in question. Just a question. Take it easy, Linda, and happy Thanksgiving!
