I am not much of a believer in the paranormal or in psychics, or at least I do not spend any time thinking about them. Nevertheless, I have noticed that whenever I think of somebody or wonder why I haven’t heard from them in a long time, I suddenly run into them, receive a call, or an email. I suppose this is could be labelled telepathy, a form of extra-sensory perception. For example, on Saturday night while I was falling asleep, I was thinking about someone (who I barely know) totally at random, and when I woke up, I had an email from her.
Last night, out of the blue, I started thinking about Lyle Lovett, one of my favorite singer/songwriters. Lyle has a beautiful voice and a strange face. Unfortunately, most people associate Lyle with his brief marriage to Julia Roberts or as some obscure country singer. Consequently, I don’t have many people with whom I can share my appreciation of his music. I did a search on youtube to see if I could find a video of him singing, and found this one below of Lyle’s version of Townes Van Zandt’s “Flying Shoes” from Lyle’s CD Step inside this House. When I woke up this morning, I had an email from my brother recommending that I get my hands on a Van Zandt CD. Coincidence or ESP?
