A numerological analysis of my busted knee

A few weeks ago I went to Munich for a weekend to visit my friend Jenny-Marie, her daughter Cosima, her brother Daniel and her mother Petra. This was just after I got the MR images of my injured knee and it looked like my tendon transplant for the ruptured ACL was torn, the worst case scenario, so I was a little worried. Not to mention hobbling around Munich on crutches all weekend long.

So that Sunday morning I got to talking with Petra, who I was really getting to know for the first time that weekend, telling her about my life in general, and where all Jenny and I had been around town until 4 AM or so, me limping about all night. Eventually Petra asked me my birthdate, took the numbers down and started doing the math for a numerological divination about me, something that Jenny already mentioned she might be inclined to do. Apparently, this involves computing the digit sum of the numbers in my birthdate, with some quirks and complications, ending up with a number that I "own" and is known to have mystical properties that tell me all about myself. After working out the arithmetic, Petra looked up at me with a bit of wonder. My number is 33, she said, the highest Master Number, meaning that I am a Master Teacher, with mastery over the community, who cares for and teaches others in the community with wisdom and devotion. She was rather impressed. And I thought, well hell yes, the highest Master Number, mastery over the community, that's me all right.

But that's no reason not to keep blogging, is it?

At any rate, the blog has returned. Let's see how well I can keep it up this time around.
