A Friday Full of Fate, Coincidence and Good Humor


Time to tackle Thursday’s question. First I want to say thanks to everybody who visited the blog yesterday and read the next installment of “Below the Surface.” It was the second busiest day traffic-wise that I have had on the blog, so for that I thank everyone and I am glad it’s going well. I’ve gotten some good feedback on it and hope to have the next installment up in a few days. Now on to yesterday’s question, which was:

Do things happen in life by fate or is it all coincidence?

Granted, as I said yesterday this is a very broad question and certainly has no right or wrong answer. No one really knows the true answer to this question, but it was fun to hear some opinions on it. This is a hard thing to figure out for me and something I have thought about often. Because of what has happened to me I often wonder did this had to happen or is it all just bad luck, bad timing and maybe me not taking the best care of myself? Or was this something that was fated to happen to me, whether I liked it or not, and couldn’t be prevented? It makes me wonder if our lives are plotted out for us in a way on some type of road map and we are being guided along. Maybe the choices we make along way have an influence on what happens, but there is a guiding force that leads us to certain choices, good or bad, because in the long run and grand scheme, this is what is supposed to happen. No one wants bad things to happen to them, but they do occur anyway and we deal with the results and consequences of these events. To me, it seems difficult to believe that everything that occurs is the result of a series of random coincidences. There would have to be some kind of reason or plan for things to fall out the way that they do, good or bad. in the end, this really leads me up to a question I’ll be asking next week, so check back for that one and maybe my answer will become a little clearer.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer and a special thank you to Margaret Atwood who took the time to have a little chat with me on Twitter and give perhaps the only answer that makes any sense to the question (you can check the comments in yesterday’s post to see what it is). Now on to today’s question. Let’s do something a little lighter for a Friday. Summer is almost here, the weather is warmer and our thoughts turn to summertime goodies, so:

What is your favorite ice cream?

I am not a big ice cream eater myself (I know GASP!) but I do eat it once in a while and like everyone else, I have my favorites to choose from. Which one do you choose when you get to the frozen food aisle? When you stop at your local ice cream stand (they used to call them parlors, do they still have those?), what do you have to indulge in? Everyone has their own personal favorite, so I am curious to see if anyone picks the same thing. Think about it and let me know. You can answer on here, or on Facebook or Twitter. I’ll also ask a few people on Twitter and see what their answers are. I’ll post my answer tomorrow (maybe, tomorrow looks like a pretty busy day and I may not have time to write.)

That wraps things up for today. I have been jotting down quite a few questions lately, so I think we’ll have some good ones coming to stir up some discussion. If you have a question you would like to ask, a story or poem to share, or anything at all you would like to contribute, leave a comment and let me know. The door is always open to suggestions. Thanks again for following along and thanks again for the good feedback. I’ll keep plugging along. Enjoy the rest of your day and don’t forget to do something creative today!
