Contingency

“[T]he element of chance introduced by circumstances, calm or haste, sun or cold, dawn or dusk, the taste of strawberries or adandonment, the half-understood message, the front page of newspapers, the voice on the telephone, the most anodyne conversation, the most anonymous man or woman, everything that speaks, makes noise, passes by, touches us lightly, meets us head on…”

The Practice of Everyday Life, Michael de Certeau, 1984, p.xvi
