So Perry and I are watching a movie last night (Everest) and he stops to pause it. He heads to the kitchen for a few minutes, leaving me sitting in our living room, day-dreaming. As I'm sitting there, I'm talking to him about how we should go to Nepal some day and go trekking… I am babbling, telling him random things that I have heard from my friends who have gone there. Then, as I'm speaking, I look up and see a painting on the wall. It happens to be from Nepal. I continue talking about my friend who went there and brought me that painting. And then I say, "Actually, that scene in the painting is probably right from that valley where they are in the movie right now."
I look back at the screen - taking in the scene above.
I look back at the painting and my mouth drops open...
Take a look at that.
The foreground might be different, but the BACKGROUND IS VIRTUALLY IDENTICAL!!!
Wanna see that again? Thought so. Ok. Here you go:
When I start to think about all of the elements that needed to happen in order for that synchronicity to line up… well, my brain can't compute them all. So? I chalk it up to magic. Part of the Great Mystery.
Happy magical Friday to you!
