One of my favorite words in existence is “kismet”… kismet (n): 1. a power that is believed to control what happens in the future; 2. fate. I was visiting one of my favorite watering holes/local eateries/art hubs (thank you, Seven Bar & Kitchen for existing) when I met a young man who went on-and-on (in the most charming of ways) about his girlfriend’s artwork. I became increasingly curious and, thanks to the power of the Internet and smartphones, I was able to quickly puruse some of her work. And then… I fell in love with it. Bam. Kismet.
