The Beauty of Impromptu Meetings

Last night my fiance and I went for pho at our favorite Vietnamese hangout, and we saw some of our favorite friends from the dog-walking cemetery, K and her husband S. We joined them for dinner and had a wonderful time. The funny thing is, K and I have been trying to set up a formal coffee date for the past month but we haven't quite been able work things out. Yet we have seen each other randomly in the Vietnamese place and hooked up for an impromptu dinner twice in the past month. Sometimes, the best encounters can't be planned - they just serendipitously happen. I love impromptu meetings.

That's great! There's a lesson in there about trying too hard, maybe, instead of just letting things unfold on their own. :)

I with Steve. Things seem to happen in their own time.

So much more of life seems 'random' nowadays - we find it's harder to set up fixed slots, rather fit things in as they happen.

In a time when everyone and everything is overscheduled, how great to enjoy a moment of synchronicity!

Some of the best things in life happen spontaneously. Planning takes away the fun of the surprise.

I totally agree! Synchronicity just can't be planned.

Your description of Anthony Hopkins' "Remains of the Day face" swayed my decision, BTW!
