We’ve all had them; those chance encounters and occurrences. Things like ducking into a book shop in search of a quick read and discovering a fantastic author whom will be the only entry on your ‘Desert Island’  book list. Or how about happening to glance up in the college cafeteria and noticing this girl walking past your table. Four years later, she’ll become your wife.

I have my clock radio set to come on at 6:00 every morning and since I ought to be up and – eventually – doing things, I don’t switch it off at the week-end. It’s permanently set to the NPR station in Richmond, VA so I get an hour of Morning Edition Monday thru  Friday. On Saturday mornings, they play classical music. On this particular morning, I was treated to The Blue Danube Waltz. I can’t think of a better way to wake up except for . . . well, she’s at her mother’s this weekend anyway.
