My name is txilar and I'm a synaesthetic

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!!
