Flirting with Lady Luck

Don’t know about you, but so far, this Friday the 13th has been perfect for me.

I attended a computer class this morning to learn something new. This afternoon, midst sunshine and 200-year-old trees, I romped with a couple of dogs in a park. On the way home, my husband bought us a dollar’s worth of hope and fantasy (that is, a lottery ticket).

Couldn’t ask for more.

“You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. . . . Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.”
―Aldous Huxley, in Texts and Pretexts
