Of course in the strange and mystical universe that I inhabit something magical happened. At almost the precise moment that I was listening to the album and contemplating how it was now 10 years-old, a truck slowly drove past me that had "10th Anniversary" written on a large logo in gold letters on its side.
As I was writing this blog entry and looking at what (the ever reliable) Wikipedia had to say about the Jungian concept of Synchronicity, I noticed that writer Arthur Koestler's "The Roots of Coincidence" was referenced at the end of the entry. This was very strange indeed, as earlier in the week I had a vivid dream where the Koestler novel "Darkness At Noon" was featured prominently.
So there it is, strange connections in the midst of an ordinary week - a dream about Arthur Koestler - a Manic Street Preachers album - a 10th anniversary sign on a truck - and further references to Koestler coming to my attention. What is the universe trying to tell me?
