A raccoon visitor and a story of delightful synchronicities

I love when blog posts–and raccoons–cross your path for a purpose. Everyone becomes your messenger if you open up to receiving the messages! Earlier this afternoon I was staring at my WordPress feed instead of writing, and saw this blog post from Laura Bruno pop up: Synchronicity, Intuition and Animals 2h ago Somehow I landedContinue reading “A raccoon visitor and a story of delightful synchronicities”
