Swiss Army Knife

The mystery of synchronicity …

Psychiatrist Carl Jung coined the word synchronicity to describe events of meaningful coincidence with no apparent causal relationship.

When I was traveling through Europe in 1981, I lost my Swiss Army Knife.

Fast forward to 2015: One morning, I opened the door to my studio, and there on the ground, I find the same model Swiss Army Knife that I had lost all those years ago. The knife had seen much bad road.

I asked around, including the UPS and FedEx drivers if they lost such a knife. No lost knife from them.

I can’t explain how or why this knife ‘returned’ to me any better than Jung’s concept of synchronicity.
