How often does this happen to you? You read about a person, often obscure, such as Norman Schwarzkopf Sr. ,the lead investigator in the Lindbergh kidnapping and father of General Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. (I was following a Yahoo link about the Lindberg kidnapping). Within an hour, while linking to a fellow blogger in @RaimeyGallant’s #NaNoHop, I read a post about another Schwarzkopf—Elizabeth Schwarzkopf., a German opera singer.
What are the odds?
I’m a firm believer in there’s no such thing as coincidence. This happens so often in our household for it not to be a coincidence.
DH: I watched a documentary about famous historical figure this morning.
Me: I was just reading about him. An hour ago. I’m not making this up.
Me: Did you know famous person did X?
DH: I had a dream about him during the night.
If it wasn’t so common, it would be weird and spooky.
Both my husband and I go through periods where we seem to be in tune with the universe. This week, it’s my turn. It happens at least once a day. Either I’m the most prolific reader in the universe to keep running into these oddities, or I’m super psychic. Psychic is not a claim I’d make. I’m too practical and line-up-the-ducks-in-a-row kind of person to wander into the supernatural world for long. But these things keep happening.
I believe messages are sent out all the time but most of us are too busy living the minutia of life to pay attention. What do the messages mean? I’ve not found a pattern. I’m not going to stop listening, either.
What’s the weirdest “coincidence” that’s happened in your life?
p.s.Elizabeth Schwarzkopf may have sung in Sydney, but not at the current opera house, as her last performance was in 1971 and it opened in 1973. Your opera trivia for the day. You’re welcome.
p.p.s. See what I did with the title of this blog? *Tune* Get it? I thought you would.
That is all.
