Isn’t it weird how all of a sudden out of nowhere a thought pops in your head about a person you have not heard from or seen in a long while and suddenly they appear?
It’s always so strange. either you dream about them or you see something that triggers a thought about them. Or hell sometimes they just get in your mind for no reason at all then surprise! there they are. They might call you on phone or you look up, and they are standing right in front of you in the street and you’re staring at them right in the face. It’s a shock!
Crazy how that happens.
I thought of Walter about a week ago. I was just toddlin along one day and then BAM my thoughts go, “I wonder what ever happened to Walter?”
Where does that come from? Just all of a sudden like that. I haven’t talked to Walter in probably three years.
The universe is mighty powerful and I am in awe of its beauty and truly a believer in its strength.
I wrote about some of my weird universal circles in my book as they occurred over time, and later, as I got closer to meeting Angus, I realized these things weren’t just coincidences, and they are just plain spooky. But now that I’m familiar with them, I find them quite comforting.
I tried to explain these crazy universal pushes that happen to me, but it’s hard to fully express the depth and truly phenomenal, if not downright eerie meanings of these moments I have.
I get them, these “moments,” not often but when I do, I take notice.
What exactly do I mean by moments?
I have these weird nudges that always happen to me in regards to my acdc life. I nicknamed them my Bon Moments.
And I seriously had a huge one just happen. Just NOW and it’s 7am in the morning! Freaky!
Oh my. Where do I even start with this? Ok. Well.
A. I’m awaiting a package. This package contains the first of three segments I need to finish the last and final proofreading process before launching my book in March. It essentially is the FINAL leg of my book project. It is to arrive today.
C. Acdc in a brief clip of music on a politics TV morning news channel.
How do these 3 unrelated things signal a Bon moment?
Well. I dunno if I can break it down enough but I will try.
I got my very first smartphone in spring of 2014. I was unaccustomed to any social media and didn’t really know what to do with it at first. I think a TV commercial is what prompted me to go to Twitter, so it was the first social media I signed up for and Walter was the very first Twitter account that followed me.
The very first.
Not long after that I signed up to Instagram. About a week went by and one day I posted a random photo of a guitar and an amp onto my ig feed.
That particular photo? Caught the eye of another complete stranger which just so happened to be Fred, who is the person who eventually convinced me I should share my collection of stories I had written with others.
Long story short – Fred is behind this inspiration and without him none of any of this would be even remotely possible.
And that particular photo was a photo that belonged to Walter. It was of his own guitar and amp (Silly me thought it was a picture of Angus’ guitar, which I quickly learned from Fred, was not.)
So, because of WALTER I met Fred. And because of Fred, I was able to get my book printed and to Angus.
So weirdly enough, I haven’t been on Twitter in a few years so Walter of course fell out of touch.
Then,* poof * outta midair. Today. There he was! Walter found me! Only one week after I randomly just thought of him. He sent me a friend request just this morning. I woke up and saw that in my notification feed and was stupid with excitement.
I messaged him right away of course, and I kid you not, as soon as he responded back to me (and I am not even kidding in the least bit) as soon as I received that first message back from him, on the TV, the politics channel Jim always watches in the morning, as if “on cue” I hear Brian Johnson’s gravelly voice sing one word “Thun dah struhk.” And I hear one second of familiar guitar.
It was a clip from Thunderstruck and it queued in right when they were introducing their next guest. I’ve never! ever! heard anything remotely even close to acdc music on any news soundtrack let alone the political news,
And it wasn’t like it was the going to a commercial music, they actually introduced this lady with a clip of acdc, complete with lightning bolts firing across the TV and everything.
My head popped up like a meerkat.
What are the odds on something like that? Really? A trifecta like that? I went back and hit rewind just to see it again.
That’s just pure crazy!
Walter was my link to meeting Fred, and Fred was the link that helped me get my book printed, and now published. And here I am, almost done.
Today of all days is the day Fedex comes with the package. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Or even the day after tomorrow. But today, my first day of the final step to completion.
Like a circle closing.
What I think was especially freaky was the timing of Walter and that song clip. I mean. C’mon!! That’s so strange!! I can’t even!
I dunno. I can’t explain it but as soon as I heard that song on the TV I knew exactly what it was. It was that familiar little wink from the sky.
No. It’s not peculiar at all to me or even coincidental. Without the song, yes, I could call it coincidence, but Walter, being exactly right there, right at THAT moment, in my hand, at that first sentence, with that weird simultaneous timing with the music clip.
On this very day of all days?
That exact moment, was what told me it was a Bon moment.
Walter is the one single person who set off this chain reaction to my book being printed and all these connecting pieces along the way. Including getting it into Angus’ hands.
Walter is the genesis of it all.
And now, at the climatic end, he just so happens to show up again, after being gone so long. On the very day that the final leg begins. Thunderstruck indeed.
