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

Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen ... Without Some Orange In-between?πŸŒˆπŸŸ πŸ‘½

Listening to the latest
'Bledsoe Said So' podcast that dropped onto my Apple Podcast playlist this morning I found rather synchromystic in many personal ways -
Eliza Bird?🐦🌏
Especially when Em brings up the colour orange as I'm squeezing oranges to have with my breakfast, and after having completed a six-part series on 'How Colors Affect You' last night on the Great Courses streaming network.
There was no episode on the colour orange though:-)
And I like how in the blue episode the lecturer says that people often say that when they are depressed that they are often said to be felling blue, but that really depressed people would actually be feeling grey, or seeing in shades of grey:-)
My favourite colour if I had to pick one would be sky blue, like the scarab beetle magnet on my fridge pictured below.
Or the Virgin Mary's blue robe, not that I'm a Roman Catholic, like my Nan was.
I must say that whether the Bledsoe's stories are true or not, I find the topics and discussions intriguing, as there is a baby in the bathwater here somewhere I feel.
I had never heard of the Broadway play 'Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812' until I heard Em talk about it on the podcast, and I was surprised to read that Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 (or simply The Great Comet) is a sung-through musical adaptation of a 70-page segment from Leo Tolstoy's 1869 novel War and Peace written by composer/lyricist Dave Malloy and directed by Rachel Chavkin. It is based on Part 8 of Tolstoy's novel, focusing on Natasha's affair with Anatole and Pierre's search for meaning in his life.
"Josh Groban played his final performance on July 2
Okieriete Onaodowan assumed the role of Pierre on July 11; he was originally supposed to begin performances on July 3, but needed more time to prepare.
Onaodowan's performance was well received, but the show continued to struggle financially with the departure of Groban
The producers attempted to bring in Broadway legend Mandy Patinkin to boost ticket sales and prevent the show from closing.
 On July 26, 2017, a day before the official announcement, the website Broadway Black broke the news that Patinkin was set to replace Okieriete Onaodowan as Pierre for three weeks, cutting Onoadowan's run short by a couple of weeks due to Patinkin's busy schedule.
Many fans and actors were angered by this casting decision, as Patinkin was an older, white actor replacing Onaodowan (Patinkin is actually an Ashkenazi Jew). 
A Twitter campaign was begun by Rafael Casal, a friend of Onaodowan who coined the hashtag #makeroomforoak.
The controversy led to Patinkin withdrawing from the show two days later and Dave Malloy assumed the role of Pierre for the remainder of the running. 
The show closed a little over a month later, on September 3, 2017, citing this controversy and the declining ticket sales."
Beethoven is often said to have been born on December 16th, like Arthur C. Clarke was, too:-)
Did The Simpsons Predict the Day Chris Ledesma Would Pass ... or was it the Barbie Movie Trailer?🦴
