I know that when Mercury is in retrograde that, if you're inclined towards astrological reasoning, things are prone to go to hell in a hand basket. I've experienced enough wonky Mercury Retrogrades to believe that astrologists just might be on to something. So if Mercury Retrogrades are associated with mass miscommunications, delays, difficulty contacting someone, car and other technology problems, and angrier people, then there also must be an astrological explanation for a string of good coincidences. Does anybody know?
You see, lately we've been finding things. Not things that were misplaced (because that happens all the time), but things that were L.O.S.T. As in, we'd long ago given up hope of ever seeing them again. Apparently St. Anthony is smiling upon us.
Last week, Andy happened to swing by the Shack (remember the Shack?!) and happened to see the third disc of Sex and the City Season Four sitting out. This is a disc I literally tore the cabin apart a couple months after moving into the cabin trying to find. Apparently, it never made the move. After not seeing it for three years,it was a pleasant surprise to be reunited.
Finally, I get to know what becomes of Carrie and Aidan! J/k. I already know. Speaking of which, for those who are all "Team Aidan," how exactly did you see that working out? The two don't seem compatible at all IMHO; in fact, I'm not even sure why Aidan lives in Manhattan . . . Also, Pete. What is up with Pete?
Hey look, socks!
Logic tells me that all this found stuff is merely a coincidence, but my heart wants to believe that there's some deeper cosmic connection. Have you ever gone on a string of finding things? Or losing things, for that matter? ;)
For any locals reading this, my documentary on the BWCAW airs tomorrow (Thursday) on WTIP at 7 p.m. This was a fairly major project that I spent a decent chunk of the winter working on and I'm pleased with the final result, although, like any project, there are a gazillion little things I would have done differently if I'd had unlimited time to work on it. As one video producer told me recently, "Projects are never finished, they're just finally abandoned."
