Today is Sunday, June 2nd, 2019; Karen's Korner #4045

Karen's Korner readers know my obsession with 'five per week'. And since Thursday's didn't go and I had to redo it for Friday, here is number 'five for the week'.

This is a paragraph from an article given to me by a friend, taken from the June issue of 'Progressive Farmer' and written by Bryce Anderson. The title is "Summer 2019---Rolling Sevens". The article is talking about farming and the weather this year, but I found one of the lead-in paragraphs to be of interest. And the 'positive' associations with the number 'seven'.

"The most well-known creation story in the Bible relates the creation of the earth in seven days (including a day of rest). But, in nature, there are also these groups of seven:  seven continents; seven oceans; seven colors in the rainbow; seven notes on the musical scale; seven layers of skin; seven subcycles in an ocean wave; and seven vertebrae in your neck. The list could go on for quite a while, including many additional cultural references and signposts. The point is, the number seven is pretty much at the top rung in the 'perfection' or 'completeness' category."

Interesting, don't you?
