Serendipity: a happy accident, a fortunate mistake, finding something of value when you’re not searching for it. In 2001, I strolled through the food court of the student center (University of Kentucky) in search of nothing more than a healthy alternative to the usual fried pickings. Standing in a doorway, holding a clipboard and looking very “official,” was a tall husky looking man, wearing a sport jacket, pink shirt, and a Beatles tie. We locked eyes and my heart missed a beat. Corny, but true. It was for both of us, our very first love-at-first-sight. The beginning of a new life and so many new experiences –incredible life-affirming love that grew stronger each day, each month, each year. A love that continues thriving even though death has separated us. A Beatles tie, a clipboard, and that gaze….serendipity.
