I used to always think that coincidence was just that. Similarly, serendipitous moments opportunistic events on offer.

I’ve since realised we conjure them up.

Sorcery? Perhaps. Projecting out to the universe what you want, and getting it? Definitely. I mean, atom/particle level, we’re all connected right?

Still following? Good. Well, this friend and I had a quiet moment of calling it quits as mates for various reasons over a year ago. I’ve thought about him, but then today I was searching his emails to find the answers to the psych game and thought ‘hell, I reckon I’ll run into him today’.

Hobbling back to work from my physio appointment, I saw him walking towards me.

I reached out and smiled. He grabbed my hand and as we walked past each other in slow motion, he smiled and asked me how I was.

I walked down Martin Place astonished. Conjured up for sure. So I sent him a text. It was a nice reconnection moment.

Back to the animal? Well, my animal was a shiny black horse, with a caricature type donkeys head. I often laugh about that, I see many characteristics in those two creatures that make sense to me. I see the donkey as the characteristic of someone who can make me laugh.

I sound insane now, but my equus asinus sounds right for me.
