A week ago I posted here the prologue of “The Alchemist” as my 20 SEC READ (ENG, PORT, ESPA), Narcissus and the Lake.

Yesterday, SeaLion, now working on the graphic novel of the book, sent me the first pages. And what did I see? The same story.

The graphic novel will be released in September in US, and eventually world wide (I really don’t know the schedule)

— Paulo Coelho

This lovely example of synchronicity was posted by Paulo Coelho on his blog.

I had two lovely examples of synchronicity today, one virtually identical to that experienced by Paulo Coelho!

I neded a copy of The Alchemist to give as a gift to the lovely lady from Eden People who had demonstrated the Jesus Deck to me at the weekend. And there was a copy for me to pick up.

I was having lunch today at the Guildford Institute in Guildford. My eye was caught by the July programme for the National Gallery. There on the front cover was a detail from Venus and Mars by Bottecelli, the very painting I had written of only last week! Not only that, but the very part of the painting that was relevant! Unbeknownst to me, Venus and Mars is housed in the National Gallery.

As I wrote these thoughts, I thought of an African friend who I had not seen for sometime, possibly several months. I looked over my shoulder, and there she was!
