  • The way we get into these scrapes and get out
    of them, it's almost as though someone was dreaming
    up these situations; guiding our destiny.

    Robin, to Batman

    Destiny circles your life like a red-tailed hawk, like a premonition, like a gathering storm.

    Destiny is the journey you must take, those lonesome highway blues, your path with a heart.

    Destiny is like a green silk scarf floating across the moon, free at last. There is no escape.

    Destiny is your Fortune Teller, shuffling the Tarot, waving her alchemical wand.

    Destiny has Attitude with a capital “A,” has a permit to carry, wears snakeskin Tony Lama boots,
    barges in when you least expect her. Your Rhinestone Cowgirl. Lock and load.

    Destiny is your electric eclectic tangerine flake streamlined dreamboat Baby Doll. Deal with it.

    Destiny is the Dark Knight of your soul, the whoosh of wings, Batwoman, the Siren of your salvation,
    silhouetted there against the midnight sky.

    Destiny is like a far away train in the night, crossing Siberia, history unfolding, all that snow.

    Destiny seizes the moment, never looks back, follows her bliss full steam ahead.

    Destiny keeps you honest, rides a pale Unicorn, dances calypso dreams of fire and ice.

    Destiny loves you and you and you. Destiny is the one you can never forget,
    because forgetting her is forgetting your own name.

    Destiny will sail the Seven Seas to find the edge of history. You are cordially invited.

    Destiny is your Muse, your calling, your inevitability, like the Himalayas, like God.
