log for 2012
A couple cool thought synchros this afternoon, both while
working out. The first was "three," which was three-way: I was
thinking it, and reading a plate on the machine I was doing
marked "130" (focusing on the three, in fact), and then it
came on the Prince song I was listening to -- all at once, in
that distinctly, perfectly synchronized way I've come to
associate with thought synchro. Now, the first two could
easily be explained by my focusing on the plate: it said 130,
there's a three on it, and it drew my attention for some
reason. However, once you factor in the fact that "three" came
on the song, at precisely that moment that I Just Happened To
focus on the 3 in 130 ... it was notable, and made me blink.
Then, "love is the master plan." This one was especially cool.
Just as the "master" part of the song played, my attention was
yanked to my right, just outside my peripheral vision, to the
belt on the machine I was doing at the time, which had
"masters" printed on it. Again, I was tempted to explain this
as a subconscious thing, me perhaps seeing the "masters" out
of the corner of my eye and then, thus, noticing it when it
came on the song. But this doesn't fit, for two reasons:
first, I was Attracted to the "masters" on the belt before the
"master" on the song, but only an instant before, maybe a
split second, if that. It was another one of those things that
was so synchronous, I had to take note.
Also, had a couple other, lesser thought synchros, both
related with the feng shui book I'm reading. I thought two
very distinct things today, 1) that other people's things seem
to bring a certain energy with them, and 2) that certain
spaces seem to have certain energies and the like. Well, these
things were all addressed in the book, when I wasn't even
planning on reading the book today (I'd planned on reading
another, but felt Compelled to start the feng shui book --
though the thoughts came *before* I'd decided this). Also,
there were several other similar parallels between what I read
in the book and other things I've been thinking about randomly
over the last couple weeks. This is happening more and more,
Not really a thought synchro, but something like it. Tonight,
I was listening to a Smashing Pumpkins song while looking for
information on how to change the turn signal on my motorcycle.
On the instructions, it mentioned a grommet, and I wanted to
make sure I knew what a grommet was, so I put it into Google
image search. A grommet it is a ring, and the precise moment
the images loaded up, the song said "ring."
Some really cool ones today. First, there were two (minor)
ones at the motorcycle class: someone mentioning, randomly, Ed
McMahon, when I'd seen several random references to him
lately, as well as discussed him with [my friend], and had an
incredibly weird dream involving him. Then, "holler," when I'd
Noticed this, very distinctly, in my ledger yesterday, and
then the teacher of the motorcycle course used this word. The
cool one was on the way home, though. After a hair-raising
drive through Blowing Rock's pea-soup fog, with my tank's
needle on empty (my fault, bad planning, and there were no BP
or Exxon stations between Caldwell and Boone), I found myself
stopping at a random gas station and buying one gallon of gas.
All along the way there, I felt fearful, as well as kicked
myself in the ass for neglecting to get gas before a trip, but
I had this strange assurance that all would be okay, which it
was, after I got my gallon of gas, safely, without falling
casualty to the fog (and did I mention I was doing this on
little sleep and after 4 hours in the motorcycle class, and
with my thyroid going nuts?). When I came out of the gas
station, my truck's odometer caught my attention, Randomly,
and I noticed that it was 173173 (1 + 7 + 3 = 11, 1111).
Several occassions within the last few days, I've been
thinking, for no reason I can pinpint, of the movie Platoon,
which I've never seen. While thinking of it once, I thought of
how I thought it starred Charlie Sheen, but I couldn't
remember, or even think of any reason I would know this
(again, never seen the movie). Well, tonight while fixing
dinner, my parents had the TV on and a random commercial made
mention of Charlie Sheen, who'd starred in the movie Platoon
(I'd just come downstairs, too).
My second, tumultuous day of motorcycle class. Wow, what an
ordeal, but the good kind, where I learned a bunch and came
out alive. First, a couple minor ones. The first one involved
flushing toilets. The toilets were a central fixture of the
building hosting the class, as well as being right next to the
classroom, so they were on my mind a good bit. Then, just
before lunch on the last day, I used one of the actual toilets
(not the urinal) and Noticed the flushing water, somewhat
distinctly (as oppose to very distinctly; I noticed it more
than simply seeing it, but not so much that it jumped out at
me, the way some of these do). In any case, within 20 minutes
of Noticing the flushing waters, I went and ate lunch in my
truck, and read the Feng Shui book as I did so, in which I
read about how, according to Feng Shui, flushing water creates
a powerful energy vortex (and I only read a few pages of the
book on the break). Notable that that would feature in the
book when I'd just Noticed flush, and so soon. Also, it
mentioned in the book, in that same section, how the first
room you see upon entering a structure can shape your
perception of it, including the bathroom -- when I'd just
noticed this yesterday (and today both), since we started
entering the building's backdoor then, right at the bathrooms,
instead of the front, and I noticed this very thing, though
not quite a Notice, just a very vague subtle sensation that
came about as I saw the bathrooms first upon entering. Now, I
can see how, foreseeably, this feeling I had had resulted from
something else entirely, rather than the bathrooms impressing
me with some perceptual energy; however, it's notable that I
would feel that and then read about it in the book, so close
together (and it makes sense, really, though I could see how
this could be entirely perceptual, or a combination of
perceptual/energetic, rather than some obscure, purely
energetic principle). Also, just this morning I was thinking
of how I'd read that having an electronic clock right by your
bed can affect your sleep, very distinctly I thought this,
about 3-4 this morning while trying to get back to sleep --
and then it was in the Feng Shui book with the rest of these
things. A one-two-three punch.
But the cool one was when I saw a seagull. It came during the
tail-end of the outdoor training, right about when I started
seeing the light at the end of the tunnel that was this
three-day trip (suspiciously around this time, actually). This
ties in with the seagull synchro that occurred at the beach,
since I came to interpret that as possibly symbolizing
hope/achievement, as well as freedom, and I could see that
applying to today, on multiple levels. I felt to identify this
the moment I saw it (in an intuitive way I'm beginning to get
a sense of, a kind of button-click which brings recognition
and a smile), but as if that wasn't enough, the seagull was
right by the big electronic sign that cycled between the
temperature and time, and the moment after I saw the seagull
and had that button-click intuition about it, the clock
flashed 1:33, which of course is a variation of the whole
11:33 theme that I see all the time, but is actually the exact
time that I've seen a couple times lately (iirc, I saw this
both three times in a row, I want to say Thursday afternoon,
Thursday night, and then Friday afternoon, always conspicuous
in my seeing it, such as waking up to pee at just that time
Thursday night, or Just Happening to have my attention jerked
toward it the other times). If I didn't know better, I'd say
that I had the minor synchros of seeing it just as a lead up
to the seagull thing, as if to put its hallmark on it and wave
hi and tell me that how I felt about the seagull was right as
rain. It's hard to say, of course, and could go either way,
but in any case, it certainly has my attention.
Just remembered a thought synchro from the way home: was just
thinking of going home and sleeping off this whole experience,
when I saw a big sign reading "refresh, rejuvenate, relax."
Very synchronous, too, and I don't think it was subconscious
suggestion, either, since I was thinking it just as it rolled
up the road (though I can't be sure about this; notable in any
Cool word synchro today. Read "dogface" in ledger this
morning, and Noticed it, and then, just before lunch, I went
to Youtube by chance (after going there three times earlier)
and noticed what looked like a porn video, on its front page,
and went back and looked at the thumbnail -- I thought Youtube
didn't show porn. In any case, the title involved "Dogface."
It was a different context than the ledger entry -- the ledger
was referring to a WWII infantryman, and the video was just a
nickname, it seemed -- but still very cool.
After lunch, in the Feng Shui book, it mentioned "The Lion
King," and I Noticed this, for no reason. Then, I was
Compelled to go to Goodwill today, looking for a clock, and
while doing so, I saw a copy of the movie there. It would have
been unnotable if a) I hadn't it Noticed it in the book like I
did, and b) it hadn't been so long since I've seen mention of
that movie (I can't remember the last I saw it).
Also had some word synchros: "faux pas" (in "The Moany Sea"
this morning, which I was Compelled to edit, and then was in
Feng Shui book a few hours later, when I hadn't seen this
phrase for a long time), "Spanky" as a name (this one is quite
notable, part of a three-banger; it was in "Koko" first, and
then I overheard it in a conversation on Friday night, at the
first motorcycle class night, I think the day after I'd
finished the book or something, but I didn't note it because
it wasn't particularly rare, and I didn't Notice either,
though I do remember a distinct sense of synchronicity upon
hearing it the second time; however, today it was in the Feng
Shui book, so I decided to log it); "empathetic" (I'm on the
fence about this one; in the ledger at lunch, I read
"empathic," and Noticed it, and then "empathetic" was in the
Feng Shui book this evening; the two have the same meaning,
and it's notable that I would see such a rare and similar word
so close together, for perhaps the only time since first
logging it in my ledger, but there is certainly a
More word synchro: "overburdened" (in "Moany Sea" this
morning, and then "Ketu" tonight, which I'd just had rejected
today and felt Compelled to edit tonight); "drink in" (absorb)
(in ledger this morning, and I Noticed it, and then in "Ketu"
tonight, in the same context)
A cool thing this morning, about the knickknack that somehow
jump onto my back and the hood of my sweatshirt (I'm tired of
typing, after writing [my friend] that email, so I'll just
trust myself to remember the weird thing, which culminated in
me receiving the message "God's blessings surround us all").
Anyway, when I went to take pictures of this to tell [my
friend] about it, I noticed that the picture counter on the
camera was at 37. So, another 37 synchro, and a very, very
mild one, but I found it notable because, just before I'd seen
the 37, I was thinking about how many this whole thing was a
means of giving me the "God's blessings surround us all"
message, which was a sort of realization, when I've learned to
associate 37 with realizations.
Another cool 37 synchro this morning. Just after I finished
writing [my friend], I got this PJ Harvey song in my head, "Is
This Love?," and just as I had the thought that it might be
related to [my friend] (which I was, at the moment, feeling
passionately towards), I noticed that the clock was 11:37.
Also, the moment I noticed it, the time ticked to 11:38, as
happens so many times.
Had a minor word synchro, too: "bodily," was in my email to
[my friend] this morning, then in ledger at lunch. A common
word, not too notable. And a couple more: "droll" and "maroon"
in ledger at lunch, then in "There's Nothing Under the Stairs"
this evening. Maroon was notable because I Noticed it;
"droll," I did not. "Bodily" turned up in "The Stairs" as
Word synchro: "outsize," in ledger, then in "The Museum,"
probably ten minutes later. Heh.
Another lot of random, minor, otherwise unnotable synchros
this morning, I can't even think of any examples, just another
big onslaught, mostly in my absent thoughts and very little
One more word synchro: "faced sucked inward" was in ledger at
lunch today, and then it was in "The Export" tonight, in the
form of "face sucked in," when I had done this very
sporadically (had planned on starting the last Jack Cruz edit
tonight, but wanted to rearrange my room so I did something
Had another bunch of minor, inexplicable synchro today, so
minor I can't get a real example, yet clear enough to give me
pause and demonstrate the synchro. Mostly in my absent
thoughts again. Did have one word synchro, "economy," in
ledger at lunch and I Noticed it, and then in Jack Cruz
tonight, in the same context. "Clownish," too, and I Noticed
this (though, in Jack Cruz, it was "clownlishly").
One thing did happen today, and I found it eerily notable.
While riding my motorcycle, I braked with the front brake
while going too slow, and dumped it, right on my ankle. Though
it was twisted and against some rock, it was fine, though it
easily could've broken. Where it happened was literally just
down the road from where, a couple years ago, I pulled up on a
guy who'd broken his ankle after dumping his motorcycle. Also,
I'd been thinking of this incident recently, since I'd been
passing his place on my bike.
Had a weird three-way thing with Purple Rain. First, in the
morning, I had a stray thought about Prince riding a
motorcycle in the Purple Rain moving, in relation to thoughts
about my own motorcycle. Then, when selecting my music for the
day's workout, I went through a whole bunch and couldn't find
the Right album, until I happened upon the Purple Rain
soundtrack, which felt very Right, in the way I've experienced
before (I hadn't thought of it anymore since that morning).
Then, in Jack Cruz tonight, I edited the part that mentioned
the Purple Rain soundtrack. Hmmm.
Word synchro: "above-the-board". Tim called at breakfast this
morning, and he mentioned this randomly, and then it was in
Jack Cruz this morning, less than an hour later, in the same
context. "Wormhole," also, from these same sources.
More word synchro: "stewing/stew"; this was in Jack Cruz
several times this morning, and then was in ledger at lunch,
notable purely by repetition alone. "Stalemate," in Jack Cruz
and then "The Summoning" book (interestingly, both of the uses
pertained to a conflict between a man and a woman, the man in
the stalemate), "goose bumps broke over the arms," in Jack
Cruz and then "The Summoning" also. This one is cooled:
"staggered," as an adjective. I read it in "The Summoning"
first, and Noticed it, because it was the first I'd seen this
used as an adjective; then it was in the DMV Motorcycle
Handbook this evening, in the same context, when I've been
meaning to study it for days and Just Happened to get around
to it tonight ...
"Turn a corner" (that something had changed); this was in the
ledger at lunch, and then in Jack Cruz tonight.
A lot of that minor, random synchro again, a bunch of words
from either the ledger or stories or thoughts repeating
themselves, with a few minor, obscure thought synchros too.
A cool word synchro: "Navajo." I went up by Howard's Knob
today, for the first time in a while, scouting to see if the
road would be good practice for my motorcycle, and on the way
down, I Noticed "Navajo Tr." Then, about an hour later, while
reading "The Summoning," it mentioned Navajo, though as a
Another cool one. While reading "The Summoning," this
afternoon, the guy in it checked out a library book, and it
brought up, arbitrarily, the time I checked out the books on
Roanoke. Then, not two pages later, a character in the book
mentioned Roanoke (I couldn't have read it subconsciously; I
had turned the pages since thinking about Roanoke ...).
And another cool one. The last book I read was the Feng Shui
book, which mentioned the "bagua," the first I'd ever heard of
this. Well, today, while reading my next sequential book, "The
Summoning," it mentioned first "fung shui," and then the "baht
gwa," which is another word for bagua. Heh.
And yet another cool one: last night, on the way to the beach,
I was listening to a radio station, 103.7, and I Noticed this,
not just because of the 37 and how many 37s I'd seen that day,
but simply a Notice. Well, tonight, I watched the movie 12
Monkeys, and in it, a woman turns on the radio to 103.7
(interestingly, I was going to watch Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
tonight, but I'd erased it, and so I watched this one, because
it felt Right, as has happened before).
Another 11:37 synchro today (though I haven't been noting
these in my log, since they're usually so obscure and random).
This one was notable because, first, it was a telemarketing
call on my cellphone, which is rare, as well as illegal, from
what I understand; second, it came right at 11:37, when I've
been seeing that one so much recently.
A couple minor word synchros: "ping pong," used in
"Enfermedad" this morning and then was in "The Summoning,"
about an hour or so later; then "pulp fiction," when I'd
checked out the disc of the movie to see if it was on there,
just before lunch, and then was in "The Summoning," soon
And a cool thought synchro: I was reading a part of "The
Summoning," and by some random, arbitrary trigger, I thought
about the group mind and group dynamics, which led to me
thinking of the TV show Survivor, and no soon had I thought
that, than I read "survivor," in that very distinct,
synchronous way I've come to associate with this phenomenon.
It bears mentioning that the word itself was visible to me as
I was thinking the preceding thoughts, lending to the
subconscious-reading explanation; however, I remember
distinctly the chain of thought which led *to* my thinking it,
and it started with absolutely nothing to do with the TV show,
only indirectly relating to it (right when I read the word
A couple cool word synchros. First, "limosine liberal," which
I am 99% sure was in "The Summoning" when I first started
reading it, but wherever it was, I read it recently and
Noticed it, and then it was in "State of Fear" this afternoon,
the next sequential book I read (just like "The Summoning"
mentioned the bagua, from the Feng Shui book before it ...).
Also, "monochromatic," from the same sources, though I'd read
of monochromatic before "The Summoning" (though I did Notice
it there, thinking that it was such a rare word, I never read
it, etc., and then it pops up in "State of Fear" ...).
Word synchro: "Ginni" (name). Saw it when I went through "The
Summoning" looking for "limosine liberal" today, and then it
was in the "Pulp Fiction" movie tonight (first I'd heard the
name was in that book, and I Noticed it, of course ...).
A cool one today. Last night, while watching "Pulp Fiction," I
Noticed a UNC Santa Cruz tee shirt that a guy wore in it a few
times, every time Noticing it. And then today, in "State of
Fear," it mentioned UNC Santa Cruz, when I don't know if I've
ever noticed mention of that before.
Also, I was thinking, absently, earlier today of how I can
recognize a cat's cry, and then, tonight, when I read [my
friend]'s latest email, she mentioned something eerily,
similar: "As I may have mentioned, I know my cat's
voices. It's much like answering the phone and knowing
(by voice and not caller ID) who's calling."
Had a lot of minor, disassociated synchro this morning, while
going through my old file of documents. A couple things were
more notable (one document made me think, randomly, of the
song "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails, and then of Trent Reznor's
heroin addiction and how it might have been a learning
experience, and then the next I opened (Compelled to) was an
old essay I'd written on just this, though the name suggested
nothing of it), along with a word synchro, "deflate," in "The
Energy" this morning (and deleted, as so many of these are),
and then it was in a Zip program, its extraction method,
A lot of random synchro today. Not quite one of those barrages
of minor, obscure synchros, but still not quite significant
enough to note individually. I edited "The Dead Man's Phone"
this morning, and I saw a lot of minor things referencing that
(Sav Mart was in the story, and there were a couple Sav Marts
on the drive home, along with a few other direct references I
can't remember). Also, this morning I'd thought of both Clive
Barker and that racket promoting The Law of Attraction and
such, and when I got home and checked my email, there was an
email mentioning Clive Barker, along with an ad from that
racket, both when I hadn't seen them referenced in I don't
know how many months.
Also, the other day, Tim made a point to show me his college
transcript, that he was taught by an Oppenheimer, for no
reason I can say. Well, today I read about an Oppenheimer in
"The Holographic Universe," who was a teacher in the 50s, at
the same university that Tim had attended.
A couple cool ones today. First, I had some diarrhea just
before lunch, a lot, and I didn't feel otherwise sick. It came
and went and didn't come back, and the only cause I can see is
my probiotic, which I took about an hour previously. This has
never given me diarrhea before, even when I first started
taking at a much higher dose; the only reason I can think of
is that I skipped yesterday (or, alternatively, maybe the
bacterial colony is finally being established and taking root,
hence the diarrhea). In any case, just after I got done having
the diarrhea and then sat down to eat, I opened my ledger, and
the first word I looked at was "kaopectate," defined as an
Also, the other day, I mentioned to [my friend] the fish
analogy in regards to describing reality and our place in it,
and she mentioned to me how she was unfamiliar with it, and I
replied that I thought that, with it being such a good
analogy, everyone knew it, though I had only read it once
before. When writing this reply, I thought, offhand, of how I
hadn't seen it but that one time. Well, today I read the same
analogy in the "Holographic Universe" book. Heh.
And another. Yesterday, when driving home, I kept seeing all
those minor synchros in relation to "The Dead Man's Phone,"
and I remember thinking, I wonder when I'll see something
about Robert Smith from The Cure, since him and the band were
referenced in the story. Well, today, while reading [my
friend]'s email, she gave me an idea to get a magazine for
Ethan's birthmonth and year, and I went looking on ebay, and
sure enough, there's an issue of some magazine with Robert
Smith on the cover, when I haven't seen mention of him for I
don't know how many years. And it didn't stop there: while I
was cycling through all the magazines, there were covers
showing five or six different people I've thought of very,
very randomly over the course of the last week or so (Sharon
Stone, Macy Grey (whose name I didn't even know), Bill
Had one this morning while driving home. I'd looked at the
time for some reason, can't remember why, and it was 11:07,
and I Noticed this as I do, it standing out in its way. Well,
maybe a half mile up the road, my attention was directed,
similarly, to a house number, 1107. It was so close together,
and my originally seeing the 11:07 so randomly, that I had to
note it (it struck me, too, the way many of these things I
Noticed do). Something similar happened this afternoon. I
called Tim just after lunch, and I Noticed that the call had
been two minutes and thirteen seconds (reading as 02:13 in the
phone's display), and then, about fifteen minutes later, when
I checked the time while reading, it was 2:13 (02:13 according
to my alarm clock).
Had a really cool one today. This morning, when I went to
Ingles (Compelled), I heard a Fleetwood Mac song on the radio
there, a really good one, and it stuck with me, enough that I
didn't want to leave the store so I could hear the song. Well,
Tim called today, and wanted me to get him some Prilosec; at
first I told him no, because I didn't have the money, but as
the day went on and I thought about it, I decided I could make
a bank withdraw and hook him up. To make a long story short,
it was a big, random thing that ended up seeing me to CVS this
afternoon, and when I went in, that Fleetwood Mac song was
playing on the radio (and if I didn't know better, it was
playing about in the song where I left it that morning, about
halfway through). Now, I thought about this (the same thing
happened at the beach, pretty much), and I'm thinking that
maybe both places are tuned to the same radio station,
something they subscribe to just for this purpose maybe; but
the fact that the same song would be playing at just that time
that I went into CVS, and, seemingly, right where it left off
... It was striking.
Word synchro: "the work of the devil," in my ledger at lunch
and I Noticed it, and then in "The Holographic Universe" this
Word synchro: "grommet," was in ledger at lunch and I Noticed
it, very distinctly, and then in the subject line of [my
First of the day, a word synchro: "rebozo," was in ledger at
breakfast and then in "Enfermedad" just after (when I'd just
decided to do this story on a whim, instead of the others I
had lined up ...). I think I've used "rebozo" ... twice, if
that? Also, less significantly, "tableau," in ledger and then
the same story, though this is a more common word. Another:
"grume," in "Enfermedad" and then in a website that I went to
just before lunch, very randomly, about enzymes.
Some more word synchros this afternoon: "phantasmagoria," in
journal yesterday and I Noticed it, then in "The Holographic
Universe" today, first I'd seen it used somewhere in a long
time; "jaundiced" and "sheepishly," both in "Enfermedad" this
morning and then "The Holographic Universe" this afternoon.
Word synchro: "black" (verb), was in ledger this morning, and
I Noticed it, thinking how I never use that, and then it was
in "Coursing" a couple hours later (though as "blacking," but
same context). And another: "subaural," this one in the ledger
at lunch and "Coursing" this morning (very rare word, maybe
the only time I've used it, and did I mention I had absolutely
no plan of doing "Coursing" this morning, yet felt Compelled
to?). Also, "croupier," in "The General" this morning and then
ledger at lunch, though this could be a coincidence, since the
"croupier" in the story was in a different context, as a verb,
as "croupiered," while the other was a noun. Still notable.
Had a cool one toward bedtime. After writing, I had a sudden
speculative, ruminative brainstorm, out of nowhere, about how
a universal force seems to permeate all levels of reality, a
force that seems to govern experience as well as energy and
matter. Well, after thinking these things, I went upstairs and
did a Google search I'd been Compelled to write down earlier
that afternoon, "4d sphere/spiral," totally unrelated to what
I'd been ruminating on. This led me, indirectly, through
several jumps related to the search, to a video entitled "Love
and Gravity," in which the guy said that gravity was a force
that influenced "all dimensions," very nearly what I'd been
thinking, and that gravity is Love. This reminded me of
various things I've read about gravity being just this. I
think "compassion" is more accurate, but it brought about a
realization, including that of how maybe gravity is what pulls
us through the spiraling process. Neat.
Had another bunch of minor but noticeable synchro throughout
the day, so many, mostly in the four stories I edited, words
popping up again and again. Had one very notable one: in "The
Holographic Universe," I read several times today how there
were accounts of higher-level beings ingesting knowledge like
it was food, and then, in "School," I'd written the line: "The
point of consciousness considered this most interesting
development, ingesting its wisdom as a lower being might
A cool word synchro: "gloaming." I Noticed this yesterday
while submitting stories, "the gloaming" magazine, and I
wondered, distinctly yet in passing, if gloaming was a real
word. Then, today, in "Into Thin Air," I saw it used, for
maybe the first time outside that magazine. Funny: I'd felt
Compelled to choose that book when choosing a new book today.
A cool word synchro today: "markedly," in ledger, and I
Noticed it, very distinctly as usual, and then it was in "Into
Thin Air" just after lunch, maybe 30 minutes later, for the
first I've seen that used in a while.
Had some turtle synchronicity today. Thought of it this
morning while sick in bed, and then the dictionary.com word of
the day was "Chelonian," which Caugh My Eye and compelled me
to look, and it meant turtle. Then, on the way to Ingles, I
noticed a car stopped in front of me had a turtle bumper
sticker. I felt compelled to look up the symbolism, and in the
page I found it mentioned how, for some reason, it symbolizes
"one day at a time," which seemed to be the theme of my day
and its trials (I'd thought this twice today, before looking
up the symbolism).
A cool, if gritty, one tonight. Last I'd written [my friend],
I included a banner ad for magnesium that I found funny, about
how this magnesium, being formulated not to induce diarrhea,
"won't shit you." Well, I replied tonight, and when I got to
the part about the magnesium ad, right as I started replying
to it, I felt diarrhea coming on (I'd just upped my magnesium
dosage about an hour before, and it was obviously too much). I
don't think this was psychosomatic, as it came on very quickly
and urgently, when I wasn't really even thinking of the
magnesium (consciously, at least).
Word synchro: "pathology," in ledger this morning and I
Noticed it, and then in an email that I opened randomly this
afternoon (wouldn't be notable except that I'd felt Compelled
to open the email, after Noticing the ledger entry so
Couple more: "alimony," which was in the ledger this morning
and Noticed, very distinctly, and then in "Dominion" this
afternoon; and "Laurel," this one on a street that I Noticed
this morning while taking the trailer to the welding place,
and then, a couple hours later, when looking up the phone
number for the welding place, I came upon listings for people
on a "Laurel" street (perhaps the same; this street was the
same involved in a synchronicity a month or two ago).
Word synchro: "touched," in ledger this morning and very
distinctly Noticed, and then in "Other" a couple hours later,
in a distinctive way that made me Notice it all over again.
Some other, random word synchro was in it earlier, involving
things from yesterday that I can't remember.
More: "carpels," in "Other" this morning, and Noticed because
I deleted it (like so many of these), and then it was in
"Dominion" this evening, when I can't remember too many times
I've ever seen it used like that. Then, "carnage," on a bumper
sticker I Noticed this afternoon, and then in "Dominion," just
an hour or so later (notable since I Noticed it and saw it
again so soon). "Greek to him," in "Other" this morning
(though at "to her"), and then in "Dominion" this evening.
A cool one: "sandalwood." This has turned up a few times over
the last week, enough to make me take Notice but not quite
coherent enough for an entry, but then I got an email from [my
friend] today, in which she linked to a video in which the
word could be seen in the background (I missed it when
watching it the first time, but she pointed it out, because,
apparently, she's been seeing the word too ...).
