When marking time we tend to value certain numbers more than others.
One’s 40th birthday is culturally more important than the 41st.
Even numbered years tend to carry more weight, as do Olympiads and leap years.
Other numbering schemes have their quirks. Interstate highway mile markers get smaller as you travel west.
Some numbers make no sense at all. Airline flight numbers fit this category.
I realized last month that I had written 500 daily blogs without interruption. That seemed somehow noteworthy. Yet why should the 500th post be more or less important than the 528th?
Yesterday as I was wandering around a most unusual city thinking about what to write for my next blog, I made quite a discovery.
A hand-painted address on a window presented a fitting way to mark 528 daily notes of observations in words and pictures.
