A little levity from the news:
One of the fallouts of Hurricane Irma was that about 125 avocados fell from our tree, the entire crop all at once. Of course, there is no way that we could eat all those avocados, which would be ripening about the same time. So I’ve been giving away grocery bags of avocados, leaving them at places where people gather or pass by. With one bag, I included a note about it being a great opportunity to make guacamole. I came home after dropping them off and noticed on my iPhone that the word of the day in Words with Friends was…guacamole! Synchronicity!
So how did that synchro play out? The next morning out of the blue Trish and I were offered a small editing project with a tight deadline. We finished it in a few hours and made $375. Not bad, especially since it was quite easy. The guy liked it and says he’ll call on us again. Interestingly, the store value of the avocados we gave away is just about what we were paid for the editing!
Here’s another one. I’ve been working on a mystery novel in which the main character, Jake, has the ability to travel out of body, but I’d been stuck for a couple of days. Nothing I did seemed to work. Finally, one evening I came up with the idea that Jake has trouble getting out of body, and it’s right at a point where he needs to do so. He’s frustrated and blocked—sort of like I’d been feeling.Then, as I was working on it, I received an e-mail from Wes Meeks, whose out-of-body experiences have been featured here. But he told me he was feeling frustrated because he couldn’t get out of body, nothing was working. He basically told me that he was having the same problem as my character! So, for me, that means I’m on the right track with the novel!
My suggestion for Wes, btw, was to watch for synchronicities.
