4.44.444 - the numbers game

I woke up in the early hours of this morning, picked up my mobile phone and gasped when I saw the time: 4:04am. I watched as the time ticked by... 4:40am... 4:44am.

It's the 28th August 2012 today. And that means:

  1. It's Mum's birthday - exactly 4 months and 4 days after mine.
  2. It's 4 years, 4 months and 4 days today since my 44th birthday - I had the first of what would end up being 6 tarot readings that day with the wonderful and talented Yvette at the Oracle of Sassafras in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. It was a perfect sunny, blue sky Autumn day and the reading was amazing. It was a day, and a reading I won't forget in a hurry. Sadly though, I found out at Christmas time that Yvette isn't doing readings any more.
  3. Dad was born on the 4th May - which means he was born 4 months and 4 days into the year. Today just happens to also be the 44th anniversary of the founding of the drilling exploration company that he officially launched on 28th August 1968 - 4 years, 4 months and 4 days after I was born. :)

Numbers. They speak a language all their own. They come as signs and appear again and again in those synchronistic moments that we all experience - but may not necessarily recognise. They have meaning. They have significance. They tell a story. They tie seemingly unrelated events and happenings together. They make sense. And they have their own special magic.
