“You just assume that the universe is conspiring for you, not against you. … I think that the more you expect that, the more it actually works out.” -Susan Sarandon
Antecedents: “In early Christian works, the Greek word “pronoia” refers to Divine Providence, a continuing benevolent force that keeps the world in order.”

Above, a photo of Edward Gorey posted by the New Yorker. It has nothing to do with the subject of this post—pronoia—unless you consider it a gift, or that Gorey was here for the benefit of all of us which is true. Besides that I posted it because I like the photo. I said “Ohhhhhhh” when it appeared. I thought maybe you would too.
