The day started like any other day at The Malibu Gym.
Greg, one of the trainers, was wearing a “Drill” shirt. Arnold made a comment that his shirt should say “sargeant” after the Drill logo. Greg said, “well, I’ll see what Craig can do about that”.
Craig is the owner of Drill. I haven’t seen Craig since the beginning days of working at the gym…probably 18 years ago. I have had many Drill shirts but I thought Drill went out of business and I haven’t seen Craig in a very long time.
I went on with my day and was at the local Starbucks when a good looking man caught my eye. He had his dog sit at the edge of the parking space while he walked away, then he called the dog to come.
As he got close, I commented, “that is one well-trained dog”. He agreed and I couldn’t help but notice his amazing blue eyes AND the fact that he was wearing a Drill shirt.
I had owned a shirt just like the one he was wearing. Then, I went to my car and sat with my door open while I talked to a girlfriend on the phone. I watched the blue-eyed guy go inside the store next to the Starbucks.
I knew that it was a skate board/surf type shop but then noticed it was “Drill”. Then, as I sat there longer, the owner, Craig (who Greg had mentioned earlier) came out of the store.
There was something about that beautiful blue eyed guy. Not only was he wearing a Drill shirt, but on the very same day, I saw the owner who was mentioned earlier when Arnold and I commented on Greg’s Drill shirt. Synchronicity swirling around me is all I can say…
I found it interesting that all those events took place in one day. The next couple of Wednesday’s I went into that Starbucks hoping to see the blue-eyed guy, but not to be seen.
Two Weeks Later…30 miles South.
I was in Santa Monica at the local farmers market. As I sat waiting for my friend I noticed a man that looked like the man I noticed 2 weeks earlier.
Sure enough, I could see his blue eyes from 15 feet away, I looked to see where he went and there was his dog that verified it was him.
I couldn’t resist so I approached him and asked if he lived in Malibu…that I remembered him and his well-trained dog. It turns out, he works in Malibu and lives out my way as well. He trains horses.
I shared with him the first place I lived in Malibu was on a private horse ranch.
My landlord had taken me to a few great clinics to learn riding techniques. He wondered which ones?
I could only remember one of the techniques that really stood out for me and shared that. He said, “when and where was this clinic”. I knew it was sometime in 1992 since that’s when I lived there.
He said, “wow, you took a clinic with Buck Brannaman”. “Yes, that was the name”, I said, “I remember it felt like I was in the presence of a real master”.
He went onto tell me that Buck Brannaman was the consultant to the movie The Horse Whisperer. He said that he’s never known anyone who had such a freakish way with horses…amazing man.
Turns out, he was going to a clinic the very next day to see Buck Brannaman in Montana. I shared with him the synchronistic events that ocurred 2 weeks prior and now it felt like even more synchronistic events were happening.
I find it so very interesting that he could be someone who caught my eye in Malibu and I was hoping to see him on the days I go into Malibu when in fact, he lives close by me and I got to see him and talk to him again.
Then, if that’s not enough, as I was hiking with a friend and telling her about all these events, she said, “wait a minute, I know who you’re talking about”. She assists a teacher in a yoga class and he has been to her class and she has had enough conversations with him to know that he is a horse trainer. Of course, the blue eyes and the dog confirmed that we are talking about the same guy!!!
This is a small world and we vibrate strongly enough to pull in the people we want to pull into our vortex! If you pay attention and find some awareness in your own lives, I promise, you will see the same crazy synchronistic events. Enjoy them, that’s what they’re for!!!
Just a post note: I wrote this a few months ago. Recently, I sat down at a different Starbucks in Malibu to edit it.
I had my head buried in my computer when a man walked up and asked if I was reading the newspaper on my table…I looked up and it was this same man that I am writing about!!!
Another note: there have been a few other times I’ve seen him, he is clearly not the least bit interested in me. However, there is something that keeps pulling his presence into my space. I’m just going to wait and see what happens next.
Whatever the case may be, it’s fun to notice!

Years ago I worked for Bill who produced all of Buck’s videos and books, and we organized all of Buck’s clinics. In fact I edited Buck’s “Groundwork” book. And our company made all the silver buckles and custom leather work for The Horse Whisperer. I remember reading the script before production began, and it was pretty exciting to be even a small part of that movie. Buck was Redford’s stunt double on the film. Nice story Tara, indeed, synchronicity is a beautiful thing.
too cool Julie, what a small little place we live in!~
That’s just too amazing to keep running into the same person! I think it means something…..whatever that something is, I hope you share it with us!
