Serendipity: Those little moments when the Universe winks and if one pays attention something good can happen.
Chaos: Those times when the imagination runs amuck.
Yesterday afternoon, after working on a thread in ROGUE MOON, my brain stalled. This happens–far more frequently than I’d like. A break usually restores things. Nope. So I ran errands–a book to pick up the library, a run to the cleaners. Returning to the computer, I went back a couple of chapters and reread them looking for inspiration.
I should mention here that Iffy, my Muse, is too busy petting the two photographs I downloaded of Rudy and The Villain. Yes, TV has a name but that would be letting the cat out. I decided to exercise. And considered running a load of laundry. I even tried chocolate. Then I remembered I’d promised to photograph the wolves I received for my birthday. I hadn’t even unboxed them after the initial gift opening. So I did. This is “Among The Trees.”
My CP gave him to me. While looking into the trees, I saw the forest and a plot twist that had never occurred to me howled at the moon–figuratively speaking. I needed a little chaos. There’s serendipity in chaos if you know where to look…
For me, it was into the eyes of a wolf.
Don’t forget the LUCK OF THE IRISH series. Alicia Dean is up today. Just click the Wild Okies link over there on the sidebar. And this has nothing to do with anything but when looking for the “herd” name of a different animal, I came upon what a group of squirrels is called–dray. Who knew? And it can’t get much more chaotic or serendipitous than that. 😉
