I tried to PM this to you Pixietina - but you can't recieve PMs.....
I don't know if you know, but synesthesia is where two senses get a little mixed up - for example hearing and taste - some people can taste music. Certain sounds will make them taste different flavours... for example my name would taste like strawberries or something like that. In my case it's sight and sound, my inner monologue will also bring it up - so different words come out as different colours. I don't necessarily see those colours physically on the page, but I see them clearly in my mind. As you saw, each letter in the alphabet has it's own colour... but when they are all strung together as words, there is a dominant colour for the sound of the word. "Colour" is a yellow word - even though individually those letters are yellow, black, black, black, orange, green. "Pixietina" blurs a bit like a ribbon from yellow, to deep purple and then screaming red on the very end where the "a" is.
My cats names look different too - Tosca is a deep pink-purple colour with a yellow twinkle where the c is and then a red flare on the end. Bootie is a deep blue with a white and peach flicker on the end. Rune is deep sea green. I think it all depends on the sound of the word.... if it's a harsh word, then I'll see harsher colours in abrupt shapes... the softer the word, the smoother and softer the colours. It's a very subtle difference in the colours.
For reference THECATSITE - is deep purple, bright yellow and soft forget-me-not blue. There is a red flare at the A and a soft peachy smudge at the Es... it's very pretty. One of these days I'll draw them all. It could make an interesting painting project now that I think about it. I wonder why I didn't com up with it before.
Is there anything else I might be able to explain to you, or just something you're curious about? A lot of people simply don't understand it at all - it's nice to meet someone who's curious! Most others think I'm slightly insane!
