Leave It All To Chance…

Well…it’s still hot as hell around here, but we caught some breaks late in the evening. Nothing like the nice cool wind on a cloudy day with a slight drizzle to lighten up the mood and put a smile on your face. The days these days just pass on by so fast. One minute you’re waking up, the next second, you’re on your bed getting ready to go to sleep. Hmmm…wait…that makes sense if you never did anything in between. Alright…let’s assume you did do alot of things in between waking up and going to bed. Time does indeed travel fast…sometimes even if you’re not having fun

Some things are true whether you believe them or not. That’s one line I seem to use alot these days. How ironic it could be applied to the many things I live at day in day out. Would I consider myself one lucky guy? I don’t know. It’s hard to consider yourself lucky when you don’t believe in luck itself. But when I look at the close shaves I’ve been through, either I’m doing something right, or someone up there really likes me. Since alot of things I doubt I’m actually doing it right….so logically I would have to assume, I’m one lucky bastard.

From my academic life to the people I’m with. From the things that I get to the events that happen. I just noticed one thing. Alot of it for some reason involved some degree of “luck”. It’s inexplicable I tell you. Right places at the right times, right things at the right moments, right people for the right event. Fine, it doesn’t happen all the time, but just enough for a person to really sit down and really take notice. I’m just surprised I never noticed it before…and I thought things like that only happen in movies.

How can anyone expect to believe in something they can’t measure? It’s different from God because at least with a broad definition of God, even science can explain the existance of a higher being. But luck? How do you account for coincidences and fortunate accidents? How do you account for miracles and small blessings? I can’t have faith in something I don’t have evidance to…I’m not one of those religious people. It’s not that easy to have that much faith these days…not without knowing that what you believe has something to back it up.

So for now I think I’ll do what I do and let whoever’s in charge sort things out. If there is such a thing called luck, then let it be, I don’t have to believe in it to make it work. If it’s part of the universe, it’ll work on it’s own like it or not. Yeah…that’s a smart thing to do.

Hope there is more wind tomorrow…good to think on a dark cloudy day…always good to think…
