Seattle, Synchronicity... and do fathers matter?

Title

Seattle, Synchronicity... and do fathers matter?

Description

Carl Jung had a word for the eeriness when two or more unrelated events occur together in a seemingly meaningful waySynchronicity. This past week, I came to appreciate this concept that heretofore has seemed like magical thinking. I just returned from a conference in Seattle. The same day, President Obama gave a Father's Day address about the importance of fathers in the lives of children. So what's the connection? For me, it's about Seattle. It's about the anniversary of my grandfather's death this week. And it's about two generations of missing fathers.
