Kew Gardens, London
In the last few weeks there have been an uncommon number of ‘What a small world!’ moments – I’ll be talking with someone I’ve never met before and we’ll find we have an acquaintance in common.
a) pure serendipity,
b) a sign that I know an awful lot of people, or
c) evidence of a kind of global network of people doing unusual and interesting things and I am lucky enough to be entering the periphery of their ranks?
