But after that it becomes less clear.
But one T word I do NOT like is "Time"
Now, owning an herb business, I hear more than my fair share of Time/Thyme jokes. And I even make a few myself. But although I love Thyme, Time leaves a nasty taste in my mouth.
It makes my hair grey, (what little I have left that is) gives me wrinkles and creaky joints, and contrary to popular belief, it does NOT heal all ills.
It teases, taunts and torments, then slips away and hides. I can never find time. And that is because Time flies, and I do not.
So, Time has been flying along, and it is already time to reveal the logo for the next round, round 14.
But before I do, I just want to explain it a bit, and I confess, I can do it better if I don't focus on T words, so please forgive me in advance.
Now this will be a longer intro than usual, please be patient with me.
The upcoming round is 14, so I wanted to do something that represented the number 14.
Numbers are funny things, because they mean lots of different things to lots of different people. But the number 14 has some fun symbolism associated with it.
Let's go back a step... To the number 7. A "magic" number, seven also represents the number of days in a week. but when you take two sevens together, you get a 14.
Now imagine our two sevens are facing each other, kind of like this:
And now we have a symbol that closely resembles the one commonly known as the Yin-Yang symbol.
So, although there are probably lots of other reasons why the number 14 represents Yin-Yang, I am going to go with that one because it makes sense to me.
Yin-Yang is used to represent the philosophy that for everything there is an opposite, and both are necessary for balance, so you cannot have heat without cold, cannot have light without dark, and cannot have good without bad.
And ancient Chinese philosophy teaches that balance of all things different and opposite is a good thing..
This board is a collection of many people, places and things; all of us different and yet, when we come together, we create a balance.
So keeping that in mind, This will be our logo for round 14.
