"You are what you think about all day long."
I found this not-a-fortune floating around in my wallet today. I haven't the first clue where it came from or how long it's been there. I can't even remember the last time I had a meal that ended with a fortune cookie. It wasn't even in the place I normally reserve for fortune cookie inserts in transit. Nonetheless, its message is a welcome reminder of my motto that life is too short not to be happy. A serendipitous find, to be sure.
*A note about the image at the top of this post: It is an oil painting by Sandra Romashko, found here. It is titled "Serendipity" and when I first saw it I thought it was a fortune cookie instead of a seashell. Also, I wish I was back at the beach.
