Think about that time when you last ran into your buddy that you haven’t seen for a while at the hardware store, or you turned around to see your high school gal pal at a market that you hadn’t planned on going to that day. Or, think about, sadly, the last accident you saw on a street somewhere. And, think about when someone…anyone, wins the lottery. Jackpot!
Those are all occurrences that are obvious to us and are unlikely to happen in each of our days. They do happen, but just not that often. But I submit to you that every moment of our lives is very unlikely. Take the most banal event: With the side of your arm, you accidentally brush an ink pen off of the counter at the auto mechanic where you’re getting your oil filter changed. The pen lands in “that” specific floor tile. You pick it up, and then put it back on the counter and you don’t think any more of it. Why should you? But I do.
