    Leastwise that is the plan.

    Can serendipity be induced? What say you?

      By definition that is not possible. But perhaps if doing yoga, a spider sat beside you and you invent a new move that's impressive.

        I submit that the more activities one engages in during a specific time period, the more chances it gives serendipity the possibility to happen.

        Also, who knows what might turn up as a result of this thread? If something good were to be discovered as a result of this thread, then it can be submitted that the spontaneous creation of this thread induced that lucky discovery.

          But then the resulting positivity wouldn't be 100% spontaneous.  Which, while definitely no less cool (arguably more cool), perhaps puts it in a slightly different category.  Karma?  You'd definitely deserve some kind of cosmic points for inspiring or inducing serendipity--or something--for someone.  : )

      I lugged in wood before the snow comes tomorrow and the temperature drops.  Not very serendipitous but afterward I did watch Oliver Twist and took a nap.

        Does your county have, what I think is called, General Assistance?

          yes it does, but...wait for it.... I make too much money.  I receive a $130 monthly disability check from the Army.  Ain't that a good laugh?  I do go to the low income ministry and get my monthly allotment of food.  Ah, living in America makes me want to move to Canada.  This country is so backwards now and is only going to get worse.  I have been getting together with my neighbors lately and we have been pooling our resources so that helps a lot, like having a good dinner once a week where everyone brings something.  However, my health has taken a dump on me so I don't go very far for very long right now.

    Both my Friday views and CPM dropped. No serendipity there...

    Nice hot bath and chocolate truffles lead to a quite euphoria feeling- sketched and am cooking some delicious steak with onions and peas.    Then a friend called, asked me to go out later............see where this leads.............

      Did 5 errands. On the way back saw an estate sale sign. Going back in an hour to check it out. Normally I wouldn't, but this is serendipity day. big_smile

    Now, how is THIS for serendipity?  Delicious, isn't it!  I simply heart chocolate!
