Occasional Other Matters: Thunderbolts and a Random Act

Ever have one of those weeks when the thunderbolts seem to hit about every ten minutes?  Unexpected unpleasant surprises, not of the very highest magnitude, but forceful enough to knock you off your feet momentarily.  Umph!  When the symphony office said a mysterious package addressed to me had arrived, it only made sense to don my helmet and prepare for some sort of explosion.  What a pleasant surprise to find I’d been an innocent victim of a random act of kindness instead!

From someone I haven't seen in over 20 years:  a pendant as bespeckled as my dearly departed Dalmatian.

Gorgeous! Nice to get a little unexpected lift and love every now and then.

Ain't that the truth? Couldn't have been more unexpected or appreciated.
