Exercise: write about, draw, design, or photograph your perspective of the word 'serendipity'.
When I think 'serendipity' - I think happy accident. And life is full of happy accidents when your focus is more on the positive than the negative.
Many who know me know that I'm somewhat 'directionally challenged'. I have trouble finding my way out of a cul de sac! But this little flaw of mine has helped me discover quite a few things I would never have discovered had I not been a little lost. Below are photographs I took on a couple of those occasions.
This first one was taken in Sydney, Australia. I glanced down an alley as I was wandering, uh walking down the street trying to find where I was supposed to teach a class. And what a cool surprise! I still have no idea the meaning of this display, but am happy to have found it.
The next one was taken in Melbourne, Australia while trying to find my hotel. Luckily THIS wasn't my hotel. :) And no, those aren't real people, just a whole bunch of mannequins.
I've been lucky enough to go to Australia quite a few times. But seeing these photos sure makes me miss it.
