  • In a narrow street, in the middle of the night when it is almost the next day and you have taken a short cut down an empty road, then despite the permanence of the message, and despite the clear intention of it being marketing for the Breakfast Club eatery it is printed upon, it seems prophetic to see such a fortuitous message as this shining at you in the happy orange of the dim street lights and alone as you are, it must surely be meant as a message for you.

    And when today came.. and the prophecy was fulfilled.. I preferred to think there was more than co-incidence at play that I had taken that route that night. I'm fanciful like that sometimes.
