And yet there wasn’t a conscious attempt to connect those two things.
I picked the topic by leafing through the book “Writing Without The Muse” by Beth Joselow and picking a suggestion at random.
Is the connection a conscious one, a subconscious one, or a matter of apophenia – forging a connection after the fact when one didn’t exist prior? Who knows? Who cares?
OK, obviously, I care. Fascinating how the mind works.
