" Synchromysticism:
The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Synchronicity is for the Birds?

I don't watch a lot of free to air TV, except for football and yesterday while watching the Sharkies beat the Melbourne Storm
(GO THE SHARKIES!!!) a commercial came on for the TV show '60 Minutes' featuring a story about a family whose book I had read a few years back and wrote about in this old post of mine -
A Powerful Owl Synchronicity at the BBWF For Me
My magpie friend coming to see what all the fuss was about yesterday
And I swear on my son's lives that as soon as this commercial came on my neighbourhood magpie landed on my back fence and started calling like the magpie in the You Tube clip above.
I think I'll have to name this magpie Sharkie;-)
Maybe it heard the magpie on my TV, or had heard me screaming at the idiot refs on the tube letting those Storm players get away with murder?-)
Either way, I grabbed my phone and shot off the above snaps of my friend looking a tad confused as it called to a magpie that wasn't out there, but on the TV.
And according to this article at the Channel 9 website -
How a magpie called Penguin saved the Bloom family
soon Naomi Watts will be starring in the movie, although who will play Penguin the magpie is yet to be determined!
I think Naomi is the perfect choice for this movie (and blog post;-), as she did star in 'Birdman' and not to mention David Lynch's 'Mulholland Drive' and new 'Twin Peaks' TV series.
Maybe the magpies just aren't Watts they seem?-)
Either way, I just love bird synchronicities/coincidences, don't you?

If The Owls Aren't What They Seem, Then What IS The Message?
WHO farking knows, right?-)
Oh, and I did mention buying this book above at a magick bookstore last Friday night in this post -
The Dance of Chance for an Avid Reader?
In the book 'The Magpie and the Wardrobe', the wardrobe is right in the middle of the book, which falls in the month of August and tells the story of the magpie and the wardrobe.
This book must be for the northern hemisphere, as it says August falls in summer, but in the southern hemisphere August is in winter.
The night the Bloom's magpie story aired on '60 Minutes' was
'The Glorious 12th', the beginning of gaming season in the UK.
Since English law prohibits game bird shooting on a Sunday, the start date is postponed to 13 August on years when the 12th falls on a Sunday.
I have no idea when the movie starts shooting though.
Probably all just nothing but coincidence, right?-)

I've never heard of 'The Unthanks' before Paul John, so a big thanks to you for the tip.
"...more wise than any owl"
Now there's a "message" in that line for Mike Clelland and his owls;-)
