Serendipity

Coming across Christine de Luca on Woman's Hour (see my links radio4/womanshour and the feature is towards the end of the programme for today, Monday 17th April, called "With Love From Me to You") this morning - and rarely in any case listening to that programme - I am aware of serendipity (for how else would I have found about this poet) and how our virtual lives of multiple-streamings, pod-casts and other infinite web-worlds glimpsed at the touch of buttons, provide an infinite choice of such serendipitous moments. At such times, when one is feeling over-awed and overwhelmed by more negative perceptions of our multiple-worlds as representations of chaos and confusion, these moments are magical.
