To the Nines

Posted on | October 24, 2012 | 6 Comments |

Demeter has a photographer’s eye. While most anyone can take a picture of me (myself included) and have it come out to my satisfaction, the images that she creates are pure art.

One day she took my skin, some bathtime crayons, my favourite number, and the afternoon sunshine – and this was the result.

(There are black and white beauties on the click-throughs.)

How many numbers adorn my back? What does it mean?

What do I add up to? Am I the sum of thirteen nines, or do you need to add the freckles; carry the tattoos; do complicated formulae with scars and stretch-marks as well?

Crayon washes off. Skin sloughes away. We recreate ourselves daily, mindfully. I am who I wish to be – and I am who you choose to see.

But I still don’t know what that adds up to.

This is the final in the numbers series. See the others: Pi1-10Infinity44.

    I think few of us do…
    intriguing to put it in terms of numerology though!

    We are the sum of our parts, acceptance and love of oneself brings happiness that spreads to others and your happiness is infectious and I thank you for that….

    I love the poetic combination of the seemingly simple photo concept and your inner commentary describing it; beautiful post Dee.

    Kazi – Nine has long been my favourite number, and it was my original name number as well (my new name number is different).

    Molly – I think you may be right!

    Kim – Oh, you are lovely :)

    Mia – You are most welcome!

    Penny – Sometimes the words just flow…

    xx Dee
