I love writing about these- the little ‘goings-on’, sometimes bigger ‘goings-on’, with a common thread/theme, they occur at around the same time- it’s called ‘synchronicity’
You know what I mean?
(Hey, they should get somebody to write a song about that!!
Oh, but who would we get to sing it????
Hee hee….’The Police’ do it so very well!)
For example– I was at the gym the other day, I didn’t want to just do another boring walk on the treadmill; I had my new trainers on and I wanted to ‘really’ try them out. So I headed out the door and up the road. My feet felt the difference- I was walking differently.
Away from the traffic and into the sunshine, I followed the path, where I hadn’t been before- it was great!
I thought this is a different walk as well.
Later, back at the gym, I started talking to an older lady who comes in now and then. She was telling me about her life, how she met her husband; he came from Russia but escaped to Finland before the war set in.
I thought- I’m taking a walk in her shoes- another kind of walk, another different walk.
So, a story has come from that!
Keep looking for them. They happen all the time, you’ve just got to be open to the possibility and you’ll see them.
When you do
-write them down
– keep them in a file
These little moments become-
-short (or longer) stories
-as if they are happening right now, like a conversation
– analyse perhaps, lightly though
– find words to describe
– how it feels
– how it smells
-what mental pictures it stirs…
Don’t keep them to yourself, share them!!
