In some other life

Accidents are funny things, most often associated with destruction, anger or sadness.

A collision.

A betrayal.

An ending.

Conversely, there are happy accidents as well. Positive outcomes that cause you to stumble into something and makes your smile beam like an inextinguishable ray of light.

It’s serendipitous, like two people reaching for the same glove in a department store or sitting next to each other randomly in a movie theater. A conversation happens over the glove, or a catch of the eye on the way out of the theater. Fireworks from there.

Or better yet, they happen to be in the same room at the same time with all other distractions held at bay just long enough to give each other a chance. Who knows what might come from that. Who knows what still may come. Accidents happen, and sometimes they work out better than you would have ever imagined.
