Seven is one of those ‘special’ numbers about which many things are written.
It is the sum of any two opposite sides on a standard six sided dice, and of course 007 was James Bond’s secret agent number.
Seven is the largest single digit prime number, and it was considered a God number in ancient Egypt.
In traditional Chinese culture it represents the combination of Yin, Yang and the Five Elements, a combination considered as harmony in the ideology of Confucianism.
Here in Llanfair Clydogau week seven is the week when the wooden former was removed from beneath the arch, and scaffolding was erected to allow access above the arch. Not quite harmony perhaps, but it is good to see the repair moving to the next level, a kind of ‘Phase 2’. We now hope for more good weather to help the repair to progress.
