It began with a dear friend posting this quote to the left on her Facebook wall on July 5th.
LOL - This is part of what we call writing your Legendary Story. Plot twists in the real world can be a real pain, but when you look at it from a story perspective, oh this is when the story sometimes gets really good and juicy!
Oh yeah! well I could use some boredom right about now LOL Plot twist, Plot twist, Plot twist!!!
Then I wrote:
Tonight while reading the novel A Good American I come to this paragraph on page 353 that ended Chapter 40 - "My grandmother's life had been one long opera. There had been drama, heroes, villains, improbable plot twists, all that. But most of all there had been love, great big waves of it, crashing ceaselessly against the rocks of life, bearing us all back to grace." (Can you believe that!?! - how uncanny!)
synchronicity.. gotta love it!
Then on July 8th I read this in an astrological forecast by Heather Roan Robbins on Starcodes.
Thursday, July 11: If conflicts and friction arise early on; breathe through it and be safe. Tell good stories midday; when the plot twists, choose a good road. Afternoon is more efficient as the Moon enters mental Virgo, but instincts may work better than our minds; unknown factors can challenge our judgment as the Sun sesqui-squares Neptune. Watch out for detours, sloppy conditions, and defensive people; feel the good road underneath.
I began to get this nagging feeling that the Universe was telling me to "Pay attention, this is important!" and then laughing at blowing my mind with some good old synchronicity.
Several weeks have passed but I still felt inspired to write about Plot Twists for a Mojo Monday post. I am curious and wondering what kind of plot twists others are experiencing out there? How are you dealing with them? Do you have a basket of goodies or a tool box, or belt if your more into packing them on your hip, that you can reach into when life throws you curve balls?
Have you been experiencing more synchronistic moments? What are your thoughts about synchronicity? What is THAT about?
Something to wonder about and ponder are the lyrics to the song Synchronicity by The Police:
|With one breath, with one flow|
You will know
A sleep trance, a dream dance
A shaped romance
A connecting principle
Linked to the invisible
Logic so inflexible
Yet nothing is invincible
If we share this nightmare
Then we can dream
If you act as you think
The missing link
We know you, they know me
A star fall, a phone call
It joins all
It's so deep, it's so wide
Effect without cause
Sub-atomic laws, scientific pause
