Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Number 144 in my 365 project 1-100 and 101-200
looking for the gifts in the present, each day for a year

A real gift from another person to me. Someone very sweet who remembered that I seem to have accidentally started to collect old keys and now rather love them (see here ) and she looked out for one at an antiques and collectables fair way back, in anticipation of my birthday today. What a lovely way to start my day at work.

I am rather pleased to have made it this far and for the numbers in my age to add up to 9. This is a good beginning to the year, I think. the last time I added up to 9, I was 36. Coincidentally, the number of my 365 project upload today is 144 (and that was because I missed a day….Tuesday this week was hell and photography free at my end)….anyhow, the digits in the number 144 add up to 9 as well….. and……..if one write today’s date thus: 31.1.13 its a nice symmetrical numerical palindrome……and……they add up to 9 to boot! Simply oozing auspiciousness in a numerological sense….If I hadn’t have missed the day in my 365, this would have been number 145…almost as good, seeing as 45 is the magic number I can attach myself to for the next 12 months.

Ooooh, spooky, I went to find the image for my 365 project that I had uploaded some time ago, that had my other keys…. to link this to above. And the number is number 18 of 365….another 9!

I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    A beautiful specimen!
    Red and gold : colors of joy and prosperity.
    The mystique of the numerology of which you write so well is as intriguing as what must be behind the door or in the box this gift of love and friendhship represents.
