Vodka And Rachmaninoff Equals Synchronicity
Over the weekend I was sitting in the living room, feet up on a stool, eyes closed listening to a CD of Sergei Rachmaninoff (or some spell it Rachmaninov). It was evening and I was feeling fine.
Karin came into the room to join me, though didn't really want the music on.
Okay, if I'm honest, Rachmaninoff isn't top of my choices either, but I like to try and listen to different sorts of music.
"Do you want to try that new vodka, you were given?" she asked.
It's not my preferable tipple but I agreed.
Karin brought in the bottle. "The brand is Rachmaninoff," she said, "and you're listening to ..."
"Yes, a coincidence or synchronicity," I interrupted. "But did you also know Rachmaninoff died on March 28th and his First Symphony was premièred on the 28 March?"
"How do you know that?"
"Says so on the CD cover blurb. In 1897 and 1943."
You probably won't know, but Karin's birthday is on the 28th of March.
"Oh look," I said, " and the vodka is made in Germany where you were born."
"Shall I put Adele on instead?"
Strange things coincidences.
