(how weird is the last name similarity?)
In a world torn by natural disasters, economic hardships, and Justin Bieber, we are easily burdened and depressed. It's difficult to find silver linings.
But like tornadoes and floods, the world has a natural order. It may somehow be a fluffy-haired pre-pubesent teen that awakens us to magic of Bay City Rollers. It may be the recession that turns us to our dreams, finally.
There are simple moments in every day life that can pull us from a funk. Take a look at the grocery store.
Somewhere, there is a divine order that made a man make a product that was put on a truck and sent to a store to be placed on a shelf meant souly to lift us from a ragged hell.
How else could you explain why a fruity juice drink called a "chubby" was shelved right next to the jumbo clams? Serendipity, that's how. Go on. Look for it. Where's your chubby?
