Circumstantial Evidence --- Day 2/225

Walk: Sundance Kabuki (In a World)
Distance: 2 miles

Fates are conspiring to keep my current obsession (non-reunion trip to the East Coast) alive. Eg, when I was waffling about hitting the 'continue to purchase' button on Virgin America I encountered a note from them saying I had (essentially the price of the ticket) in my 'miles bank' and did I want to use it.  One of my imaginary, book and cancel trips.  I had totally forgotten.

The I texted my Portland brother who drops in on Boston every once in a while for any hotel suggestions.  Turns out he is going to be there for two nights at exactly the time I would/will/maybe be there.  So, that would be fun, hanging out with him a bit in Boston.

Wonder what other unexpected circumstances are headed down the (Turn) pike.
