There was recently a tale in [GatorNotes] in which I tried to explain the concept of serendipity and I probably did a poor job of it. I am thinking that if I ever own something that I want to name – maybe a large plantation or a sailboat – I will name it serendipity. I seem to be inundated with it lately. Tonight I read an article at www.sylloge.com and I, for not the first time today, had my flabber gasted. I’ve been visiting his site for a while now and like to read. He has a nifty little place and a style that I really enjoy. So a n y w a y … here’s a guy that I’ve never met writing about conciousness and mind and the supreme pain of hearing the word impact used as a verb and doing it in a wonderful prose and it is totally out of the blue and just when I needed to be reminded that there is intelligent life on the planet. I would really like a sailboat, by the way.
