They'll stone you when you're trying to be so good

This morning has been full of synchronicity, which I just love. It makes me feel like the universe is in check for a moment or two. Or at least mine is, anyways. Like I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing or I'm where I'm supposed to be.
Last night I reworked the clasp on a necklace that I had made for my father some time ago. I didn't quite make the extension on bar end of the toggle clasp long enough and it was a bit of a struggle to open and close. So, after months of having the necklace to repair (sorry, Dad) I finally fixed it last night. The pendant is a piece of fordite cut by Gary Wilson. It is reversible as you can see in the photo below.

I was just about to blog about this and the fact that I'll be helping Gary out at his booth at the Bead & Button show this year, when I noticed Marcia DeCoster's blog post about her pilgrimage to Gary's place with the Seed Bead Summit Gang.
Last night while I was working on the necklace, I noticed the movie Frida was on, which is one of my all-time favorites so, I watched it while I worked and made dinner (yes, I can multi-task). The music of Lila Downs, who I really dig,  is featured in this film. This morning my friend Edgar sent me link to a more recent you tube video of Lila doing a collaboration with one of his favorites Enrique Bunbury. Enrique reminds me of a Spanish Dylanish Jim Morrisonish kinda guy. I dig him, too. 
Here's the link for the video.
