I know that lots of plans fall through. Name a time when things worked out for you? Even a small thing?

A band I'm in played a gig back in the spring of 2018. That day, as I unloaded my car, my hands were full of heavy equipment and I felt my sunglasses sliding off my face. I couldn't put the heavy stuff down in time and the Ray-Bans took a header right on the pavement. One lens was totally out. Crap. I called my girlfriend to ask her if she knew of any stores near us(we live about 90 mins away).

Picking up the lens from the ground, I put the shades back on, but I looked like I had been in a bar fight. I spoke to the sound guy as I was loading in and he said, "You know....I think there's a shop right across the street". I thought he was joking. Then, I crossed the street and there it was, 500 feet from where my glasses got smashed--a store that sold sunglasses! I couldn't believe it. It had opened [i]two hours ago[/i]. The Oakley rep had just left.

Figuring my old glasses were done, I picked out the latest model of Ray-Bans and got a great price on them. The owner then fixed the old pair for free!

This was crazy--I broke a pair of shades across the street from a Ray-Ban store. Unbelievable.

Sometimes, things really do work out.

I did have an outdoor concert that I ent to on July 4 1978. I got blasted the night before and must have lost my ticket in the party outside the gate. Rainbow was featured and wouldn’t you know I knew the ticket collector personally and he let me in!

@uncalled4 I partied with him but he said nothing about this job lol.

Indeed they do sir. I am often astonished at how conveniently the world can both fail and succeed at the same time. Those of us who might flow with the energy around us, and this is very common with musicians,
Can often surf that wave. To decent success.
Let us help we all continue to have such serendipity
