life’s pieces seem to fall into place when i get out of the way and keep my channels open. i’ve been on the west coast recently and as i returned to one of many beautiful spots i’ve stayed over the years, i was struck by the history and synchronicity i’ve experienced at different points in time at this particular place. this special malibu cottage is owned by a friend who faced and survived life-threatening injuries, for whom i tearfully played while she laid in a hospital bed five years ago. this cottage is where i spent my last night as a full time resident of malibu two years ago. it is where i faced difficult and inevitable changes just one year ago, and this year it is where i realized how each of these experiences led me to a perfect place in present time, where all these pieces have fallen into place.
