Just this week I was published. Yes, I held in my hand a freshly minted copy of the novel I had been writing for over thirty years. What an accomplishment! I was so filled with pride, and almost struck with a shocking joy that I had manifested the biggest goal of my entire life!
Move forward just fifty minutes I was having an altercation with a battery operated lawn mower that didn’t want to complete the job on the long spring grass. I was frustrated angry and at a loss at my fall from grace.
Two days later, still feeling weirdly crazy, I realised that I had become an unconscious victim of the UNIVERSE’S beautiful accounting system.
