Dudes, how was I supposed to know you were all being metaphorical?
I may also have a form of musical/sound synaesthesia relating to a blue-ish colour and shape/texture/layers... I'm still trying to figure that one out to explain it to people.
Some songs I can only hear one layer of at a time - and some songs I can hear all of the layers as they weave (oddly enough, I prefer those ones.)
My music teacher used to try to get us to identify instruments in music pieces, and then get irritated with me when I could identify the voice and one or two instruments.
It's a form of neurodiversity, and is often considered to be a disorder or disability.
But... like the more famous types of neurodiversity, such as autism, it both is and isn't a disability.
Put simply, it's a difference in perception; the way I experience the world is different to the way most of you do.
Sometimes the way the words are used - whether they're being yelled or whispered, whether they're in anger or happiness - also affects their flavour.
The word 'Milan' (and the Italian 'Milano') is glorious; it's the freshest, most mouth-watering bread you've ever eaten. I really don't... you don't taste that...? Really...?
Oddly enough, I don't use those words that often! Lol.
I hope you guys realise that I essentially just licked a metal pole drizzled in vinegar just to give you an example.
#JustSaying. Don't say I don't care about you! 👅
So, there's clearly a lot going on in my brain...
...what with the depression/anxiety, the migraines and enhanced photo-sensitivity (technically light sensitivity or photophobia, but if you say that people think you're scared of cameras) and the dyscalculia!
Honestly, though, the synaesthesia is just... me.
It's just one of the things that make me who I am - and honestly, as far as I'm concerned, it's not a negative thing. It's a gift.
After all, I get to eat books! 😉😋
Any synnies among you my nerdlets? Let me know! :)
