Last night was a reminder to trust the universe. During the afternoon, I co-working at OPA’s with Z. We took some photos of a kitten there.
After Z left, I ran into my friends D&B, then ventured to silent disco on Congress and saw V and her daughter X, decided to stroll down Congress solo and caught the end of the The Blues Specialists’ set at the Continental Club. As I was leaving, D&B were there looking for some live music.
We parted ways, walking different sides of Congress. I took the long way and made it into Guero’s Oak Garden just before D&B walked in.
I noticed a woman at Guero’s Taco Bar. She was there with her dog. We ended up sitting at the same table and started talking. Mandy & I closed down Guero’s and then also June’s afterwards. The entire evening, including meeting Mandy, would definitely fit into the category of unexpected events. If the hypothesis that events have equal amounts of connectedness to past and future holds, then the events last night are strongly connected to the future. So for both of us, in our own timelines, the events of last night will likely have significance when viewed backwards in time from our own futures. Our drink toast at June’s was to Mandy’s hopefully successful closing on her condo. It felt to me like we were toasting a future that had already occurred.
Yesterday, I also randomly noticed (via social media) that my friend Cindy, who I had met in Santa Cruz a few years, was in town. I messaged her and we may meet up today. I’m noticing that universes in which Yana and I are still together are nearby. My friend Katie told me earlier today that she had left a sweet message with Yana yesterday inviting her to move in with her. It’s a just over 3 months since Yana and I have spoken and I miss her dearly.
