"When I looked up and saw that woman walking her white cat on its red leash, I thought, oh, I'm lucky, it must be a sign. But then I thought, more likely these things are happening all the time whether I'm looking or not. I should look more! But there is pleasure too, in not looking but believing that some kind of circus is always at my back, or paused, just to the left of center, or right there in front of me, waiting for my wink."
