What Al Capone, Ernest Hemingway & Audrey Hepburn Have in Common with Ron Carter, Freedom Rides, Randy Travis & Alice Liddell
If you've visited my blog before, you will notice that this post looks a little different. That's because I'm experimenting with Storify as a blogging tool. The "story" is already posted on the Storify website, but you can also view it here on my blog. What I've included in this story is a kind of macro-synchronicity - things that happened on the same date over a wide spectrum of time. From Carl Jung, I've learned to look at time as a kind of kaleidoscope. The events that happen at any given moment create a certain configuration, a "photograph" of that instant in time. If we look at a moment in that way, we get a different perspective on time itself. "Does anybody really know what time it is?" So sang Chicago back in 1969. If you're a fan of Doctor Who, then you're probably convinced that the answer to this question is probably No. In any case, I like the idea of viewing time kaleidoscopically. That's why I take an interest in things that happen on the same date. For me, it's as interesting as looking at aerial snapshots of Earth taken from a satellite. For want of a better title, I've called this post "May 4th Milestones." Here's what that kaleidoscopic snapshot looks like.
