Synchronicity x 3! April 13, 2015Posted by nrhatch in Books & Movies, Magick & Mystery, Mindfulness.
(1) On Thursday, in her comment on A Quagmire of Obtuse Construction, Barbara (Silver in the Barn) mentioned The Elements of Style.
That night, the Final Jeopardy answer was . . . The Elements of Style.
(2) On Friday, I watched Annie (2014) for the first time.
What an adorable attitude <~ Annie’s . . . not Ms. Hannigan’s.
That night, as I resumed my bedtime reading of A Woman’s Place, the author mentioned Annie:
Still I wondered whether Kikit was in bed and what babies were sleeping with her and if she was singing them to sleep in her child-sweet soprano ~ my little Annie, singing her favorite, “Tomorrow,” pretending that I was listening and beaming with pride. ~ p. 176
The Universe’s orchestration made me grin.
I just happened to stumble into the only mention of Annie in the 405-page book on the very night I watched Annie . . . for the first time ever.
Perfect timing! Especially since I only managed to read 10 pages that night before turning out the light.
(3) On Saturday, I added Annie (1982) (with Carol Burnett) and Annie (1999) (with Kathy Bates) to my Netflix queue. Ever helpful, Netflix tossed out a suggestion ~> Black Narcissus (1947). Glancing at the synopsis, I ignored the suggestion.
Maybe I shouldn’t have.
On Sunday, while scrolling through TV channels at lunch, I saw Black Narcissus being aired on PBS.
Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something? Let’s hope it’s NOT whispering, “Get thee to a nunnery!”
Aah . . . that’s better!
