What is the definition of serendipity?
You JUST finish figuring out how to operate your new digital camera that arrived in the mail, you lie back on your bed, and, right at the very moment, AN EAGLE SOARS PAST YOUR WINDOW.
I was so thrilled when I snapped this yesterday. Yeah, I know that you kind of have to squint to see the eagle here. (You can click twice to really enlarge the photo — then you can see it better.)
My Virginia friends probably think I’m nuts for getting so excited about this. But this kind of thing just doesn’t happen every day to a New Yorker.
