Lighter moments

There was a disturbance in the force yesterday.

Around 11am I turned to my boss and said (out of the blue)
"You know, it's as somethings lifted around here"
" The weight on my shoulders has... well.. gone"

(I should point out this is NOT a thing I would normally say aloud)

She looked at me strangely, and replied
"You know, it's weird, but I was just thinking the very same thing"

I look forward these brief connections between people. The phone call when you're thinking of someone, the email out of the blue, the energy of the crowd.

We're all made of the same stuff fundamentally; so it shouldn't be surprising if we connect from time to time at some sub atomic level.

Sometimes I wonder why we move in and out of each others lives; the cyclic nature of it all.
The mysteries of life and quantum physics aside, often Occam's Razor applies; simply, sometimes we can't bear not to.

And the reason for that, is something else entirely.

Occam's Razor

one should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.

Something to live by I say :0)

Your boss has a crush on you.

That's far to obvious Niamh ! As a writer I expected something - well - less "phoned in" ;) x
