When Synchronicity Gives Me Blue and Orange

I wish I could say I was smart enough to have planned it, but the truth is, I didn’t even know what I had done until a waiter said, “You match the tables.”

I was at Fish Restaurant in The Village on Venetian Bay, taking an iPhone video before meeting Gail and *CSG for lunch. Looking at the patio, I could see he wasn’t joking:  I matched the placemats, napkins and chairs, even down to the exact shade of orange and blue. Oh, for goodness sake.

Talk about a perfect photo opportunity. (You can see it at the bottom of this page.) Thank you, synchronicity!

I love synchronicity, that amazing unknown something that creates special coincidences. Sometimes the events are fairly small, like in this situation, but they also can be enormous–like when I was saved from a car crash (more on that another time).

I’m grateful for every one of them, because they let me know something powerful is at play, and if I pay attention it can help me–even if it’s just to experience a happy moment.

I feel blessed when I have that.

Hope you have a synchronicity in your life, too–today or sometime soon.

Cheers!

(ABOVE & BELOW) Our plans had been to sit outside by the water, but after we started feeling raindrops, we switched to indoors. (It was hot out, anyway, so the air conditioning was a welcome relief.)

For additional protein, I supplemented with raw, sprouted pistachios when I got home. (BELOW) The homemade dressing I carry with me.
