Last week I was without patterns and data (specifically Friday). I was trying to find some pattern or data set that still alludes me. It is a frustration that I do not remember having. Normally the frustration is not knowing how the patterns and data are to be put together.
So I sit down at my trusty white board and begin. First the word “Direction” which leads to “Mystery” which leads to “Compass” which leads to “Concentric Circles”. It continued on but the words “Concentric Circles” just hung there randomly. I thought about it Friday and into the weekend. No answer. All still blank. No data means no projections.
This morning I download my podcast app. I had to reset my phone the previous weekend and this was one app I did not put back. Then I subscribed to The Village (Matt Chandler) church. The sermon began in Deuteronomy 6. And he began by talking about concentric circles. I listened in awe.
Since the brain is capable of making huge jumps with predictive analysis, I wonder if this was one of them. If it was, how? My mind was quite blank, void of data and patters – at least that was how I felt. I still feel that way this morning. Data and patterns are a part of my life. What will today bring?
