It matters not the timing of a day, An absent mind that meets a busy street. The driver of a bus who turns away To better hear a joke behind his seat. An accident, no planning to discern. A curve of fate, be random or your turn Gene Bourne 07-21-14 .

Hi Charmaine...I agree...and thanks for the comment. Every accident I've had seemed so senseless, yet I guess it was meant to be. If only we could view ten minutes ahead in time...Have a great weekend. Its raining in Mississippi. Your PS friend...Gene

serendipity is a very nice thing. What do they call it when a tragedy results from looking away? Like the bus driver might do. IS it called the same or does it have a different name? This one got me thinking.

Friend Andrea....you've got me thinking now. If the person had received a phone call, which delayed them just five minutes, the bus would have already passed...but that's true of anything we do at anytime. I guess it's just "Serendipity"..... It's good to hear from you...and I value your comments. YF....Gene

Hi Gene, I think I like "Each to Each" and "Dream Enhansers" best...Also liked "Night at Grandma's" but it was hard for me to decide because I like them all..I can tell that you must be a wonderful man...Glad that I could make your day... :) Noelle
