Sometimes, you wonder if the universe isn’t trying to send you the odd hint, give you a not-so-subtle nudge. Take this afternoon, for instance. There I was, walking along and mulling over An Idea in my head – one which may or may not involve the odd monk (interpret that however you will). I got to a junction, looked up… and on the other side of the road, directly opposite me, was a monk. Walking along, minding his own business and probably mulling over his own ideas.
But… makes you think for a second, doesn’t it?
Mind you, then it started absolutely chucking it down and both random monk and I got completely soaked – so maybe the universe was just trying to tell us both we really ought to start carrying umbrellas.
