I believe more in synchronicity than mere coincidence, and who am I to decide one or the other? Perhaps it is both, or neither, or everything in between. I choose to believe there is meaning and purpose in my life, and to find meaning in its many moments, "meaningful coincidence" (as Carl Jung described synchronicity)... Continue Reading →
I wrote an email, somewhat scathing in tone, a few days ago. Entirely justified at the time, I thought. I felt I was being unduly taken advantage of, that the prospective recipient of the email was intentionally obstructive and perhaps malicious, at best unthinking and uncaring.
