you already know from my last newsletter that I believe in synchronicity.
Simple humorous definition:
The other night we stopped at Borders book store -I usually head towards psychology, science or metaphysical studies. Mostly because their art section really sucks.
I started in psychology and looked across to see they had moved the metaphysical studies and it was beckoning me to the 2 comfy empty chairs. I accepted... and politely waited while someone was seriously studying the Eckhart Tolle section. I moved to the section and picked up a book on synchronicity - just then an employee reaching for a top shelf, blurted out 'watch out' as a book directly over my head flew by & got deflected by ? and landed on the floor to my right. I laughed and said 'at least we're in the right section' then looked down at the title of the book I held and it said
'There are no accidents' Robert H. Hopcke ( $15.00)
Online I was directed to the book on Amazon for $.01
Now, the employee picked up the fallen book, so I'd like to think that I got the message I was supposed to and that she recognized hers :)

Recently, there was a news program dedicated to a young soldier sadly
being returned to his family and hometown. As I watched the images of
the people lining the street for a final goodbye, the song I hope you dance
was played. I'd never heard it
So, the words go, if you have the choice to sit it out, or dance, I hope you dance...I hope you dance
As Spring arrives and Easter is here, I'm reminded of an Easter egg hunt when I was in 3rd grade at the home of my teacher. I had been a sickly child for a few years and as all the kids ran around and found the eggs and treasures, I was the only one who found none.
When it came time to go home, she called to me in front of all the other kids and said she had something for me. She came back and handed me a real treasure, my first 'professional' artist kit. I hugged it all the way home.
I said Thank You, Mrs Varieur.
Wish I could say this to her now, 'you shaped my life.'
So, at the end of the day...
all you or I can really be, is the best authentic us.
