Yesterday morning, before the sun (or I) were up:
Sorry, Mr. 23Thorns!, but I LOVE Serendipity (no, not THAT Serendipity! . . . well, I love them, too, but they’re not my subject today) . . . and some just arrived (which gives me another idea, but I can’t share it yet . . .).
I was in the washroom getting dressed when I heard a knock on our door. I could tell it was my Aunty and she doesn’t wait long, so I threw on my sweats and hurried to open the door. Alas! she was already gone.

Thinking it was my Aunty returning (although unlikely), I opened our door and behold! stepping from the elevator was our postman! This has never happened before. If they have a parcel that won’t fit in the wee mailbox, they leave a card and I then must trudge several blocks to the local outlet (in a candy store!), with formal ID, collect my parcel and then trudge home again.
He said the large, padded, envelope wouldn’t fit in our box, so he brought it to our door . . . What a sweet man! A federal employee, too! 😉
I can’t say what’s in the envelope, but you will see it soon in all its altered glory (or perhaps its non-glorious altered state; who knows?).
I was struck by the phrase “Black Swan”, which made me think of ‘Leda and the Swan’, which all ties in with what I have been re/learning, thanks to my Contented Crafter friend, who recommended a couple of inspiring books to me, one of which I’m already half-way through . . . how further Serendipitous that it is titled ‘Taking Flight’ . . .
I will explain more fully soon; just now, I have a date with Destiny, my own Black Swan . . .
Yesterday morning, as I was getting up:
