The Art of Synchronicity

On my Facebook info page, under the religious views category, I wrote the word Synchronicity. Some may call it coincidence, but to me, when things just seem to align at the right moment or happen at the same instance across time and space, it’s called the higher energy that guides and supports life; others call this God. In any case, when moments like this happen, I get excited and inspired.

One of these moments popped up in my office today. In the picture above, you see a picture my friend Hailey Tallman drew. It’s her interpretation of me as a teacher. When Hailey gave this to me, I felt so touched. The fact that she took the time to portray a part of my life that is so dear to me in such a creative way, moved me in many joyous ways.  Unfortunately, after moving into my new home, this picture stayed in the closet for over two years, waiting for me to release it. Well, today was the day.

This morning, before my 9am class, I put five pieces of tape behind its blue paper, and stuck it on my office wall. I wanted to put it there to remind me of my passion for teaching. You decide if the next part to this story is a coincidence or a higher energy at work. At 1pm, during my lunch break, I saw that Hailey had posted this entry, Art, art and more art! in her blog, Thanks for the Blues.

I’ll chalk this one up to synchronicity. Hailey drew this picture around the same time she drew mine! How long ago was that Hailey?

Thank you for this moment Hails! As always, we remain connected beyond time and space….and what this means in the grander scheme of things, synchronicity only knows.

  1. Oh my god, josette!! That TRULY IS synchronicity!! I wanted to put a piece of art up to show my respect for the everyday person, especially the poor and homeless in my city. That is so amazing that the same day I posted this image, you posted the one I did of you around the SAME TIME – both the same time I created these originally, and the SAME TIME I posted it on my blog!! Now THAT’S Synchronicity! I’m blown away by our connection and feel very inspired!
