Serendipity

An unexpected, chance encounter which leads to a happy ending/
a happy accident/
a pleasant surprise – these are some ways to describe the magical thing that is serendipity.

It is also known as the backbone of a large majority of rom-coms – and I’ve been fortunate to have known what this could feel like.

As a self-confessed romantic, I continue to have faith in serendipitous-ness, and the most recent reminder of this came up as a monochromatic animated short film, Paperman, which won the Oscars for Best Animated Short Film.

The 7-minute film features expressive animation and rich, crafted layers of ambient sounds and a lovely score.

I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did (click the thumbnail above for the video link!), and that you’ll find your very own paper planes someday soon. : )
