Couple of odd synchronicities happened to me this past week, which I thought might be worth posting. I'm currently editing an old 'classic' alternative-topic book for reprinting via Daily Grail Publishing, and had spent the night reading through a chapter about David Lewis-Williams and his theories connecting rock art and shamanism. Upon finishing the chapter, I left my office area and went to switch on the television for a bit of 'chill-out' time. As the TV came on, I was presented by a man discussing rock art..."nice synchronicity", I thought to myself. Then he started talking about shamanism connected to this rock art. Then the narrator points out that the guy talking is David Lewis-Williams. I was pretty much able to narrate the rest of the documentary, as it was almost a carbon copy of the chapter I had just edited!
A couple of days later, I watched (not for the first time) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Upon switching off the DVD after the movie finished, the TV was on a music channel and playing "Lucas with the Lid Off". The interesting part is that this video clip was directed by Michel Gondry, who directed Eternal Sunshine.
Granted, the latter isn't as impressive as the former, but both made me sit up and pay attention. And while both are well within the bounds of chance happenings, it's worth noting that I had never seen David Lewis Williams on television before.
Update: One more TV synchronicity!
