Pine is orangey to me, but I'm not sure if its the smell or the word.
Words and numbers have distinct colours for me, but sometimes other
things cross like taste, smell... all things have shapes to me.
Sounds especially or rather.. I guess exclusively?

It *IS* a great word and I didn't know that this was something
to "have" or "be" or "do" it was just.. well just. The funniest thing
to me is that I totally knew the word, only in a literary sense,
like "this poem has synaesthetic qualities" it never occured to me
that my colour numbers might be that, they were just normal. It's
wild though, the more I read on it for a while, the more I would
realise that I did. The whole concept of personalising and assigning
gender to inanimate objects. I've always gotten 'vibes' off of people
and they had distinct nearly tangible qualities, their vibes did. Now
I think that relates to the syn as well.

I just loved that purple because I love rose and I've always loved
the number 7 and when I was little I liked 8 because it was purple
and now I like both because seven is navy blue/indigo and the two are
so PERFECT. When I close my eyes in the dark I see 7 and 8 like a
lava lamp. I drift off watching the colours dance. I never *knew*
anyone with syn before. There is a group on discussion group on
yahoo, I can find it if you're interested. And then, if you *ever*
want to chat about it, let me know!!
