(Sitting outside Starbuck's on 5th Avenue)
"The key to happiness is to allow ones self to be happy."
I love to quote myself. My favorite self-quote is "The root word of happiness is penis." This should be on bumper stickers throughout the land.
Ray Bradbury says writers should mine their loves, hates, fears and obsessions.
I love pudding, i hate spiders, i fear death and i obsess about writing. So - maybe i will die by finding a spider in my pudding while writing. (I don't know why i said i love pudding - i don't. I like it a normal amount.)
Now, a synchronicity would be if a spider dropped on this page right now - (though that is not a "happy coincidence.") Or if a truck drove by with an advertisement for pudding on it. Or if a hearse drove by, with an advertisement for pudding on it, while i am writing.
But we can't will synchronicities to happen. They are random happy accidents. They do happen, though, randomly, accidentally, and happily, every day. They are serendipitous.
(I was going to call this blog "Synchronicity, Serendipity, and Dreams" but then the inner comic took over, thank God.)
