At Sunny and John’s wedding set at their beautiful flower-surrounded home in the New Hampshire hills along the Connecticut River valley, I talked about serendipity. How was it that I was a part of such a great group of friends on a Monday evening performing a ceremony for Dartmouth profs both of whom are teaching and exploring the emotional and spiritual depths of the human spirit? It had to be pretty much of an accident but isn’t that the way we often find ourselves in the best of places? I know, for me, I could have never have planned the for the most important and fulfilling things that happened in my life, for the deepest relationships, for the broadest opportunities. They just were. Could it be that thinking we control what will be our future is a fool’s game? Of course, after all “We plan, God laughs.”
