My friend Arlene Ortner called me today while Rob and I were at the dog park. She had a synchronicity- and could I talk now?
Arlene’s synchros are always terrific, and often layered, like this one, which involves her sister Barbara, who died on July 11, 2013. She was Arlene’s older sister, born on September 30, 1944.
On this particular morning , June 24, Arlene was having her coffee and doing her Palm Beach Post crossroad puzzle, as she does most mornings. She followed a clue and wrote a fancy B, like her sister, Barbara used to. She wrote over it, fixing the B so it looked like her handwriting, sort of smudging it. You can see it highlighted in yellow in the picture. Then she looked at the clue for the word under the B. It’s BARB.
First the fancy B, then the word Barb, a shortened version of her sister’s name. Later that day, Barb’s husband, Lance, dropped by the house to see Arlene and her husband, Neil. She told him about the synchro.
This cluster of synchronicities about her sister also points to spirit communication, I think. In some way, Barb is reaching out to Arlene, perhaps telling her that life is a puzzle that each of us must work out. And sometimes synchronicity holds the key.
As Arlene says, “I think about her every day.”
