During lunch, for basically vague & uncertain reasons I decided to go to Albertson's. It was more of an intuition, like being drawn or guided to go there. I wandered about a bit, trying to figure out what it was I wanted to get there, why I was supposed to come, without any success. Finally decided to just leave, but stopped by the book section (one of the possible reasons) on my way out. And there it was, I saw what I was there for: The God Delusion, by Richard Dawkins. I hemmed & hawwed a bit, but decided, yep, it's a sign (with thoughts of Mike, the english gent we'd met on honeymoon in my head - "me I'm a Dawkins man meself"). And then had to smile at getting a book on atheism based on being "guided" to the store and seeing it as a "sign". Heh.

I just hope ol' Mike is doing ok back in the UK (unless he went back to the resort!) and that it *was* simple irony at work here, not some sort of cosmic-synchronistic-coincidence harbingering something bad happening, like (ahem. "god forbid") him dying. Let's not have that, shall we? God err Luck be w'ye, Mike!

I'm a Dawkins man myself

I was introduced to him in my early 20s, in an English class. I randomly picked a book from a list to do my report..."The Blind Watchmaker" by Dawkins. Great book. I was like, wow, I actually got to read a book that spoke to me (that happened a lot that year - fucking fabulous class). I've been 'Skipping towards Gomorrah' ever since ;-)

However interesting Dawkins is, I sense the Mike stories may be more interesting!!! hhhmmmm???!!!! hehehehe

HUGS to the newly married man!!! :-)
