Let’s use our power as a group to focus on our blogging friend, Mike Perry.
Mike has a fantastic blog on synchronicity and every other anomaly you can name. I think we found his blog early in 2009, the year we started our blog, but I’m not sure. At some point we started trading emails. We used some of Mike’s synchro stories in both of our books.
He and his German born wife, Karin, live in Cornwall and some of my favorite posts on Mike’s blog are about his area, about the mysterious places and history of certain landmarks. I also love Mike’s posts on his foreign travels, which seem to be jammed with synchros. When he travels, he disconnects from the Internet entirely, something I can’t bring myself to do, but maintains his blog with daily posts.
I check Mike’s blog every morning. It’s my first stop, with my first sip of coffee. So in August, I went on one morning and didn’t find a new post. When it happened the next day, I wrote to Daz, who I knew corresponded with Mike. In the past, whenever Mike was going to head out with Karin on one of their adventures, he would drop us an email and let us know he was going to be out of town. But Daz, like me, hadn’t heard anything from Mike.
I felt uneasy. I like Mike. Never met the guy, but there’s a camaraderie you develop with blogging buddies that is difficult to explain. When that connection exists, it’s as if you’re sitting across the table from the person, trading synchro stories.
On August 14, Mike posted that he had missed 3 days of posts because he had been diagnosed with kidney cancer. He’s scheduled for surgery tomorrow, September 19, for the removal of his right kidney.
So how about if, at our respective noons tomorrow, we light a candle for Mike’s speedy recovery? Say a few words, murmur a prayer, do whatever it is that you do within the context of your own beliefs. Envision him healed, emerging from the surgery easily, and back to his life quickly!
