Life is full of surprises, the experience of coincidence is one of them.
I founded my first private limited company yesterday, during what will be a busy time. With the price of postage going up in Britain one project I am looking at is to take on Royal Mail as a rival business. Logos are being looked at for the brand, one which includes a foot in its design. I placed a commission out to an artist in a certain village outside of Colchester for a logo for another business brand.
Yesterday threw up a surprise coincidence. Considering all the above, I replaced my existing wet shoes with an old pair of shoes, and discovered in one of them stamps, an example of the work of a certain artist who will produce the stamps for me for the proposed postal delivery service. “Foot” is a a favoured symbol for the postal delivery brand. The artist lives in the same village as the one I commissioned the logo from.
Out of the blue the “stamp artist” rang me telling me about a postal delivery service in Cornwall, a person who on a penny farthing bike delivers mail at 25 pence a letter.
These sort of coincidences happen to me all the time, called synchronicity, and they never cease to shock and surprise me.
