“Maybe life is random, but I doubt it.”

–     Steven Tyler

How deep can I go if the lead singer of Aerosmith is my quote source….?

Well, he’s right.

If you think life is random, well, “dream on!”  You must have “toys in the attic…”

(Hey, at least I crack me up…)

This week I’ve had a half dozen “random” conversations.  Only they haven’t been random.  “Oh, you know ____________?”  “Hey, _____________ has told me that we should meet!  What a pleasant surprise…”

Surprises?  Yes.  Coincidences?  Nope.  Not buying it.

Regardless of your stance on Faith — arguing for random – for coincidence – is a loser’s bet.

So, instead of trying to lament (or even understand) why we’re here, now, let’s just be here, now, and find a way to make a difference.

Here.

Now.
