THINGS JUST HAPPEN

After a 400-kilometer dash for the coast of Maine, Powis had to pee. There, eight steps into the woods, was that school bus. Falling in Lithuania, he saw that dancer’s dress, hit the shutter, and then hit the ground. A bowl crashed behind him in China and as he turned, he caught the hula-hoop girl. So why wouldn’t a horse come darting out of the jungle in Belize chased by four dogs? Things just happen.
