Trios & Tripartites: Magic of 3
In numerology the number 3 is said to lend to excellent communicative, social & expressive attributes (think House 3 on the astrological chart wheel). 3 happens to be my “challenge“ number, where the choice is to use/be used by playful 3 energy. Or how about both, incorporating a midway zygos (balance)? I use 3 as a numerical parameter to contain my creative process chaos: I think in 3’s — see my first trio of collage-poems below; each collage-poem color (backdrop) informed its image/word content. When working on a set of poems, I choose the tripartite series: maybe 3 short lyric poems or 3 sections of a longer poem. 3 magic in necklaces? Currently I’m harnessing 3 in my fall necklace series: 3 jade fish (below), 3 sea stone & 3 sea glass — all forthcoming at Etsy | ZygosDesign.
