“The art of the unsought finding” (Van Andel)
I haven’t read anything on the subject yet. But after a class about serendipity, we’re sent to take pictures of "it".
I will try to do that today.
When I think about it, it seems like there is a relationship between awareness and time. The less time I have, the more aware I have to be, to se my finding-possibilities. The more time I have, the less aware I have to be – I will always find something.
Another factor that seems to clearly influence my possibilities is meetings! Between “worlds” no matter if these “worlds” are personal universes :) or different theories or different practises. In these meetings there are possibilities for “unsought findings”. I love that expression!

Yes Jenni! "Unsought finding!" I also like those words. We must remember to use it our project on Serendipity.

Also "Time and Awareness" is interesting.

And we should also consider the dilemma in the positive word Serendipity contra Mess (or useless information/findings).

It is inspiring to work with you! Thanks! - Svend

Good to hear from you! You are an inspiration as well, always with another angel :)I guess that serendipity is one of the factors that can apply experiences in a room.
