Alright, if you tried to view the site sometime after the evening of Sunday, April 15th (EST) and noon on Monday, April 16th (EST) you probably noticed the site was dead. Sorry ’bout that. It was the hosting company’s fault. On the bright side, they did upgrade my bandwidth and storage, which really does nothing of value for me since this site has pretty low requirements. Heck, I’ve even considered moving it to WordPress.com and saving myself some hassle, then turning this account into something else, like… well, something else. The next MySpace, I don’t know.
At any rate, I’m back, which doesn’t really say much because I’d not written anything. I was going to write about the lessons I’ve learned over the past week, most of which have to deal with making sure you stay in touch with people and realizing that you are only part of the body that is your network when you actually communicate properly. (Yes, I’m bad at that part. To anyone who knows me personally who I haven’t talked to in too long, sorry about that.)
Funny thing: for the first time in a few months I went back to church. This is a long story in itself, but one I won’t get in to. Yesterday’s sermon focused on this little passage from the book of Romans.
Romans 12:4 – 6
Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function… [but] each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.
Synchronicity?** Yeah, I think so. In fact, this whole past week was a show of universal synchronicity.
(** Synchronicity: Describes the temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events. Sychronicity is an acausal connecting principle (i.e. a pattern of connection that cannot be explained by direct causality), also referred to as a meaningful coincidence or as an acausal parallelism. This concept was first introduced in Carl Jung’s paper “Synchronicity â€” An Acausal Connecting Principle” (1952).)
