Do You Believe...
In fate? Kismet? Karma? Magic?
I use all of those in the Lucy Valentine books, and I have to admit I want to believe. It's been nice writing about it, exploring it a bit, controlling it so it comes out the way I want. :)
I wrote a book proposal years ago about a book based on karma (obviously I have a fascination with this stuff), it never went anywhere, but I still love the idea of it. And I love the idea that karma really exists. That good will triumph. There are a few people I know who I hope get a taste of what goes around. Just sayin'. And it would be nice to know the universe will take care of that for me as I hate confrontation.
I bring all this up because last night I had to run to Walgreens, which is about 2 minutes from my house. I left, got there, went in for about ten minutes (mental note--not the time of day to go to the pharmacy), and by the time I headed home, there had been a big accident in front of my neighborhood (it opens onto a four lane main road and has no traffic light--lots of accidents--but that's rant for another day).
I couldn't help but wonder if that would have been me in that accident if I'd left home a few minutes later, or if there hadn't been a line at the pharmacy.
I don't know, but it makes me wonder. And will probably keep me writing about it for a long time to come. (Lucky you!)
Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks about this kind of thing--have you had any close calls?
