Right there that's the postman sleeping in the sand
There's no such word as "serendipity" in Russian. The dictionary offers intuition instead, but it's not exactly the same. I like the fact many discoveries which change the world where made hand by hand with serendipity. You can't actually go and say: "Ok, I'm going to invent penicillin, or post-it notes or find the white noise, etc." All you can do is work and be attentive to details and be able to observe and detect what's going on. It happens while you're busy with something else.
So when I got an invitation to take part in this project I was also busy with other projects and it was sort of unexpected discovery in my mail box. Together with Lina Khesina, Galya Panchenko, Zhenya Barinova, Olesya Shchukina and others we made a set of 18 postcards about serendipity. Now I've got them printed! The paperstock is nice and I like the delicate embossing on the cover. It was published by Print-o-holic in St.Petersburg and I'm grateful for what they've done.
Back to work now. As fortunate discoveries tend to happen while we're looking for something else.
