“There is no chance; what we call chance is our ignorance of the complex machinery of causality.”??Jorge Luis Borges

It started with the box. Friday, I purchased a small set of dishes and they were carefully packed in a box. Saturday I discovered three oranges in the back of the fridge.

This afternoon the rains vacillate between heavy, moderate and hail. So??box and oranges??not chance , but the machinery of causality.

      i don't know how you do this--spark thought by coupling image and word in unexpected ways--day in and day out, but you do. this is another great set.

      The rain inspired you. These oranges, so juicy, I am now craving
      for an orange and I don't have any at home !
      And I learned a new word.
      Great set

      Yes, especially the first 3 do look very sensuous..... You can practically smell and taste them! Wonderful set!
