Well, now what? What happens when you do something you didn’t mean to do?
Can it be undone? How about modified, excused, or made good use of?
Was it a praiseworthy accident? Or something you’d rather not admit to?
When it comes right down to it, how many things do we do everyday, that may as well have been accidental?
Did we actually plan for things to turn out that way?
Was it on the list of things to do?
Was that the process we had mapped out for it?
Perhaps, under the circumstances, our lives are all accidental.
We caper about in our mad dash to get somewhere and all along we are merely riders on the tail end of a whip line, tossed hither and yon, and lucky if we don’t fall off.
Thanks to Van Gogh for his painting of a Plum Tree.
