It’s summer, many are vacationing in dreams if not in fact. So this post is full of image, rather than riff, and I hope anyone who cruises by will add bits of serendipity that they have found.
The dictionary definition of “serendipity” is The gift of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. I like to include things for which there is no practical use, but are delightful anyway, as well as random acts of magic. Like this marvelous basement trompe-l’oiel, made by someone with a steady hand, an imagination, a sense of humor, and a bunch of Sharpie pens.
And, linked in several places on LiveJournal last week, these amazing historical costume reproductions in paper. There are the musical ones, like those made by Matt, who traveled all around the world just to dance with people. And of course there are the flash mob musical surprises—I love these so much, and hope one day to see one happen.
There are people who go looking for serendipity every day.
What serendipity have you found?
