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

The Lost Art of Writing Letters and Communicating with One Another?

ideacity On The Air Podcast: Simon Garfield 
I wrote in my last post about listening to podcasts featuring
Spooky Dog Tales for Cat Lovers?
and I found the above talk Simon gave in Canada about letter writing, which made me ironically think, with today being Halloween, about the poor Chinese guy who wrote a letter and placed it in a Halloween headstone box heading for Kmart -
I'm also in the middle of reading Trent Dalton's novel
'All Our Shimmering Skies' about a gravedigger girl named Molly Hook, who when not digging graves helps mourners in what to write on their departed loved ones headstone.
And now I see Trent has a new book out, not about love letters, but 'Love Stories' which he bangs out the old fashioned way way on a typewriter.
Maybe I should tell Trent about my love for "synchromysticism" some day, but I'd be only wasting time maybe ... like writing love letters?-)
Mark (Not Charlie) Manson and Not Giving a F#ck?
I guess we all love a good story, whether, happy, sad or tragic ... and someone to read or listen to them?
