It's not a secret for those who know me : I love this word. Serendipity.

Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely. The word has been voted as one of the ten English words that were hardest to translate in June 2004 by a British translation company. However, due to its sociological use, the word has been imported into many other languages (Portuguese  serendipidade; French sérendipicité or sérendipité but also heureux hasard, "fortunate chance";  Italian serendipità; German Serendipität;  Norwegian serendipitet; Spanish serendipia).

These days, serendipity has been with me. From frivolous matters (looking for THE little black dress and finding an incredible pair of shoes, inutiles) to surrealistic conversations, giving me ideas for new titles. Try this one : "- Bonnes vacances ! - J'espère que ma mère sera sage". ( I hope my mother will be quiet). It makes me laugh to tears.
Or even this : there is still this guy in the background, the painter. And it's only AFTER I finished the last shooting (with a singer, actually) that I realize why I had chosen this peculiar place, and why I had that very idea.

Life is a joke. Multicolored, unpredictible, and highly enjoyable.

Please choose a word. A substantive. Any word that comes to your mind. Ok, you've got it ?
Right ; now look at these hands. These fingers. Pick a color. Done ?
And finally put these two words together. Now you have the title. Your title. The title of what ? Of the next short story you may write, of your next step in this surrealistic existence, of the next symphony you gonna compose.

Of course, you want to know mine ? My secret answer ?
Fair enough.
The answer is below...

(yes, you need to put a mirror in front of your computer, I know. Ever done that before, by the way ?)

What's yours ? ;-) Come on, tell me , just leave a comment...

And do you seriously think that the name of this guy is Andrew Bird ? Tss tss... ;-)
