Journalism isn’t a very glamorous career.
There’s a lot of rejection, both from people who don’t want to talk to you and from readers when they don’t like what you write.
And when we’re not talking to people who would rather be doing anything else we’re often waiting for events to start so we can get to work or hoping an event will end so we can make deadline.
But every so often there’s a bit of serendipity when a news event puts a journalist in position to see or hear something totally unexpected and that he or she can’t wait to share.
