One is the “one” number in our counting system we use in a wide variety of creative and inventive styles when referring to ourselves or others in the “emotional sense” of things!
We refer to “the one and only” or a “singular individual”, or “you are number one in my book” These meanings when personalized become ripe with potential raw emotions from our very inventive imaginations.
And we view ourselves as singular. I am one person and you are one person. We tend to wrap our emotions around a theme of “oneness” in a very inward and selfish way too frequently. (we all do – without exception here.)
The word one, when it has to do with humanity is important. In my future world “one” will unify, encompassing everyone, no exclusions. Time will then be better spent on solving the problems of one people, one planet and so on.
One can also refer to an individual feeling alone. Apart from the rest – lonely. A very sad place to be. And yet each of us have occasions where we live in the land of the lonely. Hopefully for only a short duration. Life is rich with the potential for each ‘one’ person to love many others and more importantly, themselves.
Hard not to go to an emotional place with that song. In summation, numbers are a science to be utilized best by mathematicians, but mathematicians are people too, so I’m thinking emotions will always reign supreme in the whole scheme of things.
Make the number one, a wonderful one today – you and all those around you. Make one – count for something!

I was thinking of that song as I was reading that.
Have you noticed that ONE is in lonely? It’s almosy like it is surrounded by walls. An L on either side with something stopping it getting out the end.

Which means there is a way out the other way. I think I have my thing for my post today. Thanks Penny 🙂
That’s clever, I never thought of one being inside of lonely, fascinating, Al. 🙂 xo
