I figured out recently that in my time-space synaesthesia, I am always oriented within October. For example, if I hear that someone's birthday is in June, it takes me a minute to think "is that in the near future or recently past?" and then I find myself placed in October, and have to move the "time strip" backwards-and-to-the-right in order to figure out what month it is currently. (Complicated!) This usually means that my "October orientation" is situated in the past October, not any specific year and not usually in the future. (I don't find myself sliding the time strip forward-and-to-the-left which would tell me that I was looking into the past from my October orientation.) haha, very complicated to explain synaesthesia in words! And it still doesn't capture it.

Does anyone else with time/space synaesthesia find that "now" is a somewhat stagnant orientation like that? I can't think of a logical reason for October, either. (Not that "A" should logically be red or "N" blue, but there they are.)

Wow! Yet another example of synesthesia that I would absolutely love to actually see visually represented.
