In The Flow
Among the things I wanted to report on was an occasional accounting of being in the Flow. What is this? It is when the path your are on seems to be congruent with your interests and intentions and evidenced by synchronicities( “meaningful coincidences,” the term coined by Jung).
Patty and I were driving south from Colorado to Santa Fe this week on my way to see my 98 year old mother in San Antonio. We had discovered audiobooks and were listening to two books by Robert J. Sawyer, “Wake” and “Watch” two parts of a wonderful trilogy. I have of late become interested in science fiction because it is the science fiction writer who imagines in vivid ways the future we may choose to move towards. Sawyer has a wonderful way of exploring the idea of an emerging consciousness on the world wide web. Sawyer is from Toronto. The proofer of the book I will soon release, called, “How Frank Lloyd Wright Got Into My Head Under My Skin And Changed The Way I Think About Thinking, A Creative Blueprint For The 21st Century” is also from Toronto. We have been in contact quite a bit over the last months.
As the sun sets we see that we will not make Santa Fe by dark and probably not before 10 pm. The countryside is bare of any commercial activity. We realize that dinner possibilities are rapidly disappearing. We come around a bend and pass a restaurant sign. I turn the car around and come back, to my surprise in the dark is the delightful Abiquiu Inn. We scoot in minutes before the dining room closes to a wonderful meal and a treasure for accommodations. At dinner we get our bearings and see that we are only moments away from the home of famed artist, Georgia O’keefe. I had always been drawn to her work. She was also connected to Frank Lloyd Wright as both were drawn to the work of Gurdjieff, the Russian philosopher and knew each other. She and Wright were from Wisconsin and had travelled to visit Taliesin West, Wright’s winter home in 1942, the year I was born. And as you can see on this website I have been thoroughly involved with Frank Lloyd Wright.
Practice looking for subtle synchronicities. They can make an ordinary day extra-ordinary.
