synchronicity.....of sorts

Yesterday I watched a lizard pounce & swallow a beetle that was as large as the lizard's head. At the precise moment of encapsulation, a frond came off one of the palm trees in the garden & fell ten metres, crashing into the pool—frond end—& across the pool fence—the reasonably solid trunk end. Water & reverberations everywhere. I do not know whether to buy a lottery ticket or to build a bomb shelter.

Whenever these things happen, I go back to read Aristotle.

Is most of poetics about internal and external causality?

Sometimes I wonder.

But then again, the whole structure of everything completely frightens me and awes me.
