For example, when my friend Kaeti from my grad school (Tai Sophia) back east heard that I was in the Santa Cruz area of California, she gave me the contact info for her friend, Leslie, who lives here. I called Leslie, who invited me to spend Thanksgiving with her friends (as you read about in this post).
While at Thanksgiving with Leslie's friends, I met Dylan, who gave me the number of his friend, Don. Don is currently moving his home, business, and farm, and needs some workers to help. I've been working for Don for the past few days, earning some temporary money while I find a more permanent work situation. Perfect.

"Actually we are. I'll get you an application."
I almost fell over. That was the first answer of its kind I've received so far! And now I have an interview here tomorrow.
And I haven't even mentioned all the threads I followed to make it to California (where I never planned to end up) from New Mexico (where I thought I'd end up), or the threads I followed to even begin this road trip (which I thought would be with my husband who ended up leaving me left right before I started) and so much more.
Have you ever pulled a cosmic thread and found yourself somewhere you never thought you'd be? Discuss.
