Synchronicity in words, Sept.1, 2015

See the previous post. Sometimes I wonder why I get up at 3am and write the things I do. After writing sleepy, semi-legible notes for this blog, I learned that two great men had died—Dr. Oliver Sacks, neurologist and author, and Wayne Dyer, self-help and Consciousness guru and author. Synchronicity strikes in unexpected ways. May their souls rest and contributions be remembered.

About sheilaklewis

As a writing coach, meditation teacher, writer, and academic tutor, I'm passionate about words and the silent spaces between words. In this context, I run book clubs and writers' groups where the resonance of carefully crafted words can spark readers and writers to share their own stories. Connecting through conversation; making memories matter; embracing editing and revision, and imaginative wordplay are some solo and collective outcomes. I came to what I call my "Meditate Write Now" practice after years of art-making, writing grants, curriculum, children's stories, and more. Meditation kept my mind from meandering too far off point and also led me to write from the still point within. May our paths cross in creative journeys across time and internet connections! Other details: My husband and I are the parents of two amazing sons and one daughter-in-law, and smitten grandparents of Micah (born December, 2013). I don't drive, and have lived in the same apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, for too long.

    As Fred Newman once said, the definition of a “leader” is someone who people follow. Whatever the reasons are can be elusive: but we certainly lost two great leaders now. Thank you for your comments. Lia

    Yes, and leadership is different than “liking” or agreeing with someone. Many people followed them, of that we can be sure.
