I was speaking with noted NPR radio host, Ben Merens, of Wisconsin Public Radio. He referenced an experience of the previous day – “noticing the signs.” He read a random license plate and it seemed, at the time, like a message just for him.
This is an experience common to my days. Sometimes even road signs seem well-timed, in terms of my train of thought or position or attitude. Does that ever happen to you? On the way to work this morning, I laughed out loud at my attitude. I observed, in my mind, that I was acting a little like my dog when she’s bent on barking. A car pulled in front of me and their bumper sticker read,
WAG MORE. BARK LESS.
Yes. That’s the joy of a perfectly placed message. Watch for signs. They are everywhere if you are willing to see them.
