Not-so-silent observations that splinter my conversations. Harnessing the steady flow of random thoughts and musings that continuously interrupt my daily conversations. Paired here with my artwork and photographs from recent adventures. Non sequitur (pronounced \ˈnän-ˈse-kwə-tər\)- a response which, due to its apparent lack of meaning relative to its context, seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing.

When is serendipity a joyful coincidence and when is it a timely test from the universe?

“Serendipity is the wisdom of recognizing and then moving with the energetic flow of the unexpected. It has a crablike quality, an ability to accumulate understanding and create progress by moving sideways rather than in a linear fashion. Serendipity pushes us to think about attitude and humility, the nature of developing theories of social change . . ."

The Moral Imagination: The art and soul of building peace (2005) by John Paul Lederach

I learned a new term in my research: zemblanity. As the opposite of serendipity, zemblanity is the habit of making unhappy, unlucky and expected discoveries by design.

I am an optimist by nature. I hold hope alive within me.

I accepted this serendipitous event with grace, love, forgiveness and open arms. Now I accept all of this grace, love and forgiveness into my own life with open arms. I gratefully accept what I myself have offered freely and openly to others.

I patiently await your sign.

My life is better with you in it....

  1. Oh...serendipity! I NEEDED to read this post today. I read this shortly after a friend had posted a comment on my blog about talking to angels.

    Something is below the surface here and I just need to open up to it.

    Thanks, Clea...
