Yet another synchronicity wave...

Yes, there are indeed only 1000 people in the universe. I've been hit by some startling demonstrations in the past few days.

Start with a discussion of glassblowing. It turns out that Andrew's mother was probably in my glassblowing class at Cal Poly. It's not enough that I was at the party where his parents met, she was probably in a class with me. So I start talking about George Jersiche (which I have probably misspelled, but will correct later), who taught the class.

Well, this morning, there is a message for me in my Classmates mailbox. John has read my profile, and is talking aobut doing cannon when he was working at Fort Ross. Which probably means he knows a good number of my friends, who have been involved there, over the years. I've dropped him a note mentioning as much. This is getting to be almost uncanny, the way the paths are crossing and recrossing...
