“Luck is where the crossroads of opportunity and preparation meet.” – Seneca, a first-century Roman philosopher
Someone once asked me what the saying ‘fingers crossed’ means. I fumbled with an explanation, like so many things in life it was just something I had grown up hearing and used without having to explain. I told my friend I suppose it’s something you do to hope that good things are going to happen, especially when a lot of uncertainties are involved. But perhaps, ‘fingers crossed’ is just a pictorial representation of Seneca’s quote: one finger being preparation, the other opportunity and their crossing a lucky bind. A beautiful way of dreaming and believing good things are on the horizon, while still maintaining responsibility for their happenings.
