For Christmas 2009, my husband and I decided to give each other a very fancy bird feeding station to try to attract our feathered friends to our 10th floor balcony. Needless to say, it was a dismal failure. Even the common house sparrow had more sense than to fly up 10 stories to find food. All that succeeded in happening was a big mess from the wind blowing the seed out of the feeders and onto the patio.
Deepak Chopra would refer to this chain of events as "synchronicity"...the connection of coincidences, events, themes and images... very appropriate indeed!
Dr. Deepak Chopra's book on the subject of synchronicity is "The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire:Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence"
