Synchronicity Abounds

Back in August, I wrote a post about the Rocky statue and the then-uncertain struggle it was experiencing in finding a permanent resting place. Because of that post, I got an email from a rep at a Philly publishing company, asking if I was interested in receiving a review copy of a book called “Rocky Stories,” written by two Philadelphia Inquirer journalists. Never one to turn down a free book, I said yes. He put me on the list and said I should receive it sometime in late October.

Yesterday I was sitting at my dining room table, reading the Inquirer, when this article caught my attention. The student writer in me appreciated the style with which it was written and my soft heart loved the subject matter. When I came to the end of it, I was moved to hop over to my computer and email the reporter to tell him I enjoyed it. It was the very first time I’ve emailed an Inquirer reporter to tell them I liked their piece.

He wrote back to my note within the hour and said, “And if you liked that story, you will love my new book that comes out in a few weeks. Check it out at”

That’s right, it’s the same book.

I know that Philadelphia is really just a small town, but I am still delighted by every instance of synchronicity I experience in my life here. I’m also thrilled, because I know that there’s a book coming my way that I will really enjoy. (I’ll be sure to let you all know what I think when I’ve finished it).
