“The cream of enjoyment in this life is always impromptu. The chance walk; the unexpected visit; the unpremeditated journey; the unsought conversation or acquaintance.”

[Fanny Fern, 1872]


I wonder when we busy our lives with schedules if we are ever present to the unexpected. I am sure it happens; I just think it may go unnoticed. Yet for some, as Carl Sandburg has penned….

“Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me.”


“The fog comes on little cat feet” ….  and blesses us to pause and consider the possibilities.
