How Peter Came To Be #JusJoJan

While I am a fan of the movie Forget Paris, I am less so for the one entitled the name of today’s jot prompt word.

Maybe I didn’t give
Serendipity
a fair chance.

Speaking of movies…

Must that word always be referring to something good or happy? For instance, I just saw the one-day release in theatres of a First World War documentary by Peter Jackson. At the end, he came on screen and said he thinks of how his grandfather met his grandmother during that war and if he hadn’t been in that war, Peter would never have been born at all.

This is serendipitous, is it not? Not good, as far as wars are never good things, but good in that we have the brilliant movie making skill of today from Jackson because of such narrow circumstances, or such broad events that had to all come together in just the right way.

If there’s anything good that can come of such a horror.

Thanks,
Jill,
for the chance to write about this word today. It’s a fun word. I love the spelling and the sound of it.

  1. Loved your post! This made me think 🤔 The meeting in wartime is serendipity. A happy little accident amidst the tragedy of war. I’ve been using happy accidents every since another blogger quoted Louis Pasteur. “Chance favors the prepared mind”
