It only just now occurred to me that my previous post was titled “Lost things” and posted on the night that “Lost”, the TV show, was on.

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.
