Douglas Coupland about meanings, patterns and combinations

I like this quote taken from "Miss Wyoming" by Douglas Coupland:

"That's what Vanessa does for a living," Ryan said. "At RAND. She finds meanings and patterns. Combinations" "What's your speciality?" asked John. "Like Ryan said, I'm a finder" "A finder?" "Just what it sounds like. Ever since I was a kid, if something got lost, people came to me to find it for them. I'm able to locate things. I ask questions. I look at data. I make connections. And then I find what's lost.

Why do I blog this? I find that Coupland just found the right word to express this feeling I already had.
