On Monday, April 17, there is a series of relationships with the element wood. I make elderberry tea to soothe a sore throat. I don’t want the hot boiling water of the container to damage the formica counter in my kitchen. T takes a wood cutting board and places it under the hot container, commenting that this wood chopping block brings in the wood element of Chinese medicine. T says, “This makes for good feng shui and adds to the power of elderberry tea.” Within 10 minutes, I open my computer, and there is an email from MB who sends me a link to an astounding video on YouTube, related to wood and a nature performance of Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring. The link is http://youtu.be/C_CDLBTJ4M, by the way, to see “music as you’ve never seen or heard it,” according to MB’s email.
In the evening, these wood references cause me to choose the green blog template with its tree background and its Tree of Life icon. I know–I have a sense of knowing that–this is the right template for my blog on synchronicity.
These wood occurrences lead me to ask: Are intriguing, memorable, unusual series of associative repetitions, one after the other, a form of synchronicity?
