According to Wikipedia…
Serendipity is an unplanned fortunate discovery. Serendipity is a common occurrence throughout the history of product invention and scientific discovery. Serendipity is also seen as a potential design principle for online activities that would present a wide array of information and viewpoints, rather than just re-enforcing a user’s opinion.
I had seen that word before, but my curiosity was piqued by a virtual friend a few days ago who actually piqued my curiosity by sending me this link.
Love the shirt!
My Forgotten Hobby is a perfect case of serendipity when I found amateur airplanes, a blog about someone writing about his hobby.
amateur airplanes left the blogosphere in 2018 leaving its numerous followers not knowing what had happened to its creator.
My comment is still awaiting for moderation and I feel the worst has happened.
Finding about amateur airplanes in December 2013 was when I started writing about a hobby I had long forgotten. I had forgotten the enjoyment of building model kits which was transporting me in the 1960s when my hobby was a way to shield myself from a disfunctional family.
Since December 2013 I have been finding new friends, although virtually, and I have learned a lot about myself. Building newer model kits can be quite challenging nowadays and I am sure we have moments when we ask ourselves why we keep on building model kits.
Then I get notified that a blogger I am following has posted something new on his blog about what he built.
And my curiosity is piqued once again.
