coincedance

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070111/sc_nm/italy_dante_dc

i`m sitting in starbucks this afternoon........because that`s what i do.........and a woman is sitting beside me as i`m talking with a friend about, well, everything....... and she`s looking through an illustrated book of dante`s divine comedy.

i struck up a conversation with her about the book because it`s interesting how people percieve the message of dante and how the engravings from the 19th century add to the 12th century poet`s vision.

the conversation led to some interesting points, one of which suprised me coming from a beautiful grandmother in her 60`s. she actually said that religion is a waste of time. it was like a breath of fresh air to me and she was surprised when she found out what i did after making such a bold statement herself.

my friend bob and i drove home and fell into a conversation about coincedance and so when i opened my browser and found an article about dante i felt compelled to write a piece around it.

what do you think coincedances represent?
