May 25, 2024

Through all my failures in recreating the market mathematics that WD Gann undoubtedly (in my mind) knew, I have not been alone and I have not felt defeated.  

It happened again early this morning.  My day began early in the quiet hours when it's easy to read and concentrate.  No, I wasn't studying The Tunnel but started with a cursory reading of news, then a diversion to reading the newest real estate listings in Tennessee.  And I came upon a listing I'd highlighted many times in Sewanee TN, home of the University of the South.

I do recall my father having told me he attended college there.  An Episcopal owned school the UoS was also known as "Sewanee" for short.  Like his father I guessed, he might have been pursuing his Letters of Law.  Or perhaps, it being a religiously oriented college, maybe he was trying to follow in the footsteps of Ralph Waldo Emerson; after all, my father's middle name was Emerson and those in my family have contended we have lineage in common.  

I don't know.  But I did study Emerson's "Compensation," "Oversoul" and other essays at times during the last decade.  So my thoughts turned to Emerson this morning and I decided to read some short bios on some have said was America's first great philosopher.  

When I read it, I didn't realize the synchronicity at first.  Waldo (his chosen nick name in preference to Ralph), was born on May 25, 1803.  May 25.  I was reading of his birthdate exactly 221 years later.

It wasn't over.  Walked the dogs and arrived at my neighbor's house to discover him woodworking.  I'd previously conveyed to my neighbor two previous synchronicities that had confounded me and this one was pretty tame relative to them.  I'd actually put this one in the "coincidence" category and that's where I left it with him as I continued my dog walk.  

And then I turned around and went back to his house.  I'd realized the 221 years had a significance that raised the coincidence from 'imagine that' to 'holy s***".  I was born in the second month of the year on the 21st.  2/21.

There are not any coincidences, are there?  I believe that.

*** *** ***

There remains greater personal significance to this day, in my opinion, that I cannot confirm for the moment but that time will bear it out or contradict it.  Contradiction has been the normal course of events.  How many times has / will time prove me wrong?  

Until I'm right, and I believe that day has / will come.
