I once heard a theory advanced that clouds repeat over a long period of time, like the way the background when Scooby and Shaggy are running at a high speed (this was in Grant Morrison’s ‘Invisibles’ comic series, which I’d recommend as a good way to bend your brain out of shape – in the best possible way).

In the same fashion, over time, certain patterns occasionally seem to become evident in my life, and I had an instance of this recently, when on my birthday, I received a communication from a voice from the past. Ten years ago to the day, I’d received a letter from someone who I’d not expected to ever hear from again.
I’m intrigued to see what happens on my 45th birthday.
