Last night, I attended a lecture at the aforementioned witchy shop. As I came in, one of the clerks asked if I was there for the lecture and asked for my name.
He then very circumspectly told me that the sailor was hoping to get in touch with me and asked if I would be amenable to that. Oh the surreal part, the sailor’s wife had texted the clerk to find me.
So I left my number with the clerk.
I admit that it was unexpected, but also a nice surprise. I assumed that I may run into him again at a ritual or event – our circles do overlap somewhat. But he sought me out, and that felt really good.
