My Stevie Wonder Moment

9th August 2013

Stevie WonderThe other day, I sat down to continue to work on my book. I turned some music on and started to review where I had got to with the work. I then heard the sound of a phone ringing at some distance. It was an old fashioned electric ringing, not a modern digital ringtone. I have heard this ringing many times before, usually in my flat or my girlfriend’s flat, sometimes in the day and sometimes in the middle of the night. I had never paid much attention to it before but for some reason I turned my music off to listen. It stopped immediately. I turned the music on again and got back to work. A minute later it started once again. I repeated the pattern. Then I understood. Someone or something was playing a game with me, trying to get my attention. So I asked very simply: “Are you trying to get my attention?”……”Yes!” came the answer, loud and clear in my head. Playing along with the game, I then asked: “So what have you got to tell me?” I then started to smile and spontaneously sing out loud “I just called to say I love you.” As touching as this was, I could not stop laughing and am smiling hard as I write this. We do have a sense of humour, don’t we!
