Radio Synchronicity

I had the pleasure of being a guest on Dena Marie’s radio program, “Lift Your Spirits,” broadcast on KKNW here in the Seattle-area. The theme was synchronicity, as there were “coincidences” that led to the interview, especially a “chance” meeting at one of my art openings, when Dena and I sat down together, not realizing we had been in the same high school class. The interview is 12 minutes long, beginning around 40 minutes into the show, available here. We discuss my studies with IDSVA, and their influence on my creative practice, the end result being something more spiritual than academic. I mention C.G. Jung’s take on synchronicity is ultimately tied to meaning; the “merely coincidental” becomes meaningful when we realize how events, ideas, and people are linked to each other. Synchronicity is not as much a miracle—although it can be—as a revealing of what was always there.
