Heroic Self Care with Rosie Waterland?

I listened to a podcast yesterday morning featuring a lady I've met in real life -
Better Than Yesterday Podcast: Heroic Self Care with Rosie Waterland
Rosie's Chicken Soup for the Soul
And I couldn't help thinking just how eerie that old post of mine is now seeing that water hazard sign I included from the Byron Writers Festival, because of the play on Rosie's surname WATERland.
I didn't know her best friend was lost to a drowning accident at the time, plus last Friday singer Dami Im, who just lives up the road from me, released a song about a friend's suicide titled 
'Crying Underwater', and it was released last Friday (the 13th), which happens to be the third year anniversary of my own father's death (not from suicide though).
This year Friday the 13th was the Chinese Harvest/Moon Festival -
A Dark Moon Festival for 2019?
Last year RUOK Day was on September 13th, but this year
RUOK Day fell the day before on September 12th.
Things Go Better with cOKe?
Not the Kind of "Surprise" in the New Year I Saw Coming from a Royal Palm Beach Swim
On Friday the 13th I went to see the Australian movie 'Palm Beach' directed by Rachel Ward whose birthday of September 12th fell on RUOK Day this year.
What Happens When You Only Pursue Pleasure?
Sam Neill's birthday was September 14th, but I have another post about Sam's birthday in the WTF(?) works coming soon.
Bad Omens: The Final Conflict?
I was impressed by the soundtrack when saw 'Palm Beach' and had no idea that Dami had a cover of The Carpenters'
'(They Long to Be) Close to You' featured on it.
Seeing a Local Star on Star Wars Day?
Oddly enough, I saw Dami play the Brisbane Powerhouse on Star Wars Day (May the 4th) last year, which was the same venue I saw the podcast host who interviewed Rosie Waterland, Osher do his live show this year ... and just after one of his friends had committed suicide -
Back, After the Break ... LIVE?
And the week leading up to RUOK Day there was the death of
Danny Frawley the day after his 56th birthday.
A minute silence for Danny in Brisbane last Saturday

And as fate would have it on Friday the 13th, just before the Brisbane Lions/GWS Giants game on Saturday night, Paul Cronin the first chairman of the Brisbane Bears (what the Brisbane Lions were called before merging withe the Fitzroy Lions) passed away.
It was a double black arm-band night on Saturday.
And my team the Brisbane Lions' season came to an end for 2019, too.
I should have known that an orange coloured moon rising over the Gabba just before the start of the match was not a good sign for my team, since orange and black are the GWS Giants' colours:-(
The Cars Frontman Ric Ocasek Found Dead?
And with Danny crashing his car into a tree, it was rather bizarre hearing of the death of 'The Cars' lead singer Ric Ocasek straight after listening to Rosie on Osher's podcast.
I couldn't help thinking of the video for the band's song 'Drive' where the clip features a woman (who would later become Ric's wife in real life) having a mental breakdown and the singer singing "who's gonna drive you home tonight?"
I read an article about Danny Frawley during the week recalling how when he was sacked as the Richmond coach he sat in his car not remembering how to drive back home and had to phone someone to come and pick him up and drive him home.
Danny Frawley's birthday was September 8th BTW
Synchronicity can be creepy, even if you just see it as all coincidence and nothing more, right?
Destination Happiness and the Cosmic Prankster?
