Yes I know SYNCHRONICITY it has absolutely nothing to do with the subject scope of this blog, but really I find myself eerily colliding with this concept more and more.
So here is my most recent collision:
I was in the bus reading about Tuna Fisheries Development (as one does). As I was reading and I was making annotations in the margins (also as one does). Upon writing one comment in the margin I used the word ‘fraught’ and I spelled it ‘frought’. I thought to myself that just looked wrong. However I thought no more of it, and continued with my reading. Eventually I arrived in the City. Got to work. Checked e-mails. I wanted to reference something and so trawled old e-mails thinking “I am sure I have something here”. I saw a very old e-mail among many old identical looking e-mails all with attachments that was entitled ‘Removing the Berlin Wall’. I don’t know why… There was absolutely no relevance between this e-mail and my present life (well at least that is what I thought). But for some cosmic reason I felt compelled to open it. So I did so. The email was blank so I opened the attachment which was a word document (an article on deconstructing the wall – literally). To my alarm right in the middle of the page of text – the very centre. Was the word ‘frought‘ with the Microsoft Word red ‘misspelled squiggle’ beneath it. As it happens it was the only word in the entire text with that misspelled squiggle beneath it. Consequently it grabbed my attention. Naturally I did what the word required me to do – I right clicked for the preferred spelling… and dear I say I was schooled by the universe via microsoft word – the correct spelling for ‘frought’ is ‘fraught‘.
