I hear you.  Message received.

I was working on my computer one day, when suddenly a document appeared on the screen. It was someone’s academic paper…



I didn’t recognize any of the names.

Did someone send it to me by accident?
I went to my Shared with Me folder.
Nothing.  
The document wasn’t there.

Did I click on it when doing a search?
I Google searched the title.
Nothing.
How the hell did I get this?

And how amazing
to get a random paper
about a topic I’ve been thinking about
for 3 years

Something that I know
deep down
is what I’m supposed to do,

I just don’t know how
to bring it all together
yet.

I also love that the paper was written December 3, 2014.
December 3rd was my Grandpa Pud’s birthday.  
December 3rd was the day he proposed to Grandma Lainie.  

I’ll take it as a sign.

I’m not usually a big woo woo person,
but I’ll take this.
I’ll hold this one close.
I’m going to figure it out.

a wall in our bedroom where I collect inspiration and ideas.
the front cover of the paper is top right.

Note from Lainie:

I did a search of the course code.  It seems as though THEA 250 is a course code for an undergraduate course out of The University of Fraser Valley.

And I told my Mom the story of getting this paper. She smiled. She told me about her experience with something similar. While she was working one day, a window popped up on her screen with a job posting. She had no idea how it got there. It ended up being for the job that she’s currently in.
