“Life is unbearably perverse: that which we most seek to avoid always becomes unavoidable.” – From “The Barkeep” by William Lashner
I don’t think I’m a spiritual kind of guy. Generally speaking, if I can’t see it or touch it, well then, I’m probably going to pass. Thus, spiritual matters and ancient tales of bizarre occurrences have no credibility with me.
However, there is a crack in the foundation. I suspect, big word suspect, that sometimes, between certain people, a connection exists that is difficult to explain. You can’t see it or touch it, but you most certainly can experience it.
Articles have been written about a special bond that twins have. They seem to think, act, and react identically. Stretch your mind a bit and that seems somewhat plausible.
Don’t know what to think about that one. People believe it’s real. I sort of do. Like when two people are thinking the same thing at the same time. But, you know, it could be just coincidence. That at least is an explanation.
There are connections that have no explanation. What exactly attracts lovers? And what bonds them with a secret only they understand? I believe there are those rare connections that defy everything we collectively have learned since the dawn of time.
Couples who experience that connection are so lucky. It’s a rare thing. Imagine the terrible waste of having it and not recognizing it. Can there be anything sadder?
I’ll tell you this – you can never close that book. It will always be a part of you. It’s in your DNA.
And for the life of me, I just don’t understand it.
Life – just when you think you’ve got it all figured – there will always be something else.

Lynn, I believe ESP is real, but still….. Bigfoot, not so much. I do believe that a very select few are fortunate enough to experience a bond between them that transcends time and space. It lasts a lifetime and nothing can alter or destroy it. It is a beautiful thing.
Interesting post, Bob. I happen to think there are some things which happen in life which defy explanation. Those small world stories we have all experienced. I was a student of mathematics and studied probability and all that, but there are things that happen which defy probability to an amazing degree. I was watching an episode on a TV show the other day and a guest on the show has written some books about this and he calls these things “god winks.” You might google it, if you are interested.
Regarding ESP, it is a FACT for me. It happens. I have had it happen to me too many times. Scientists have measured brain waves and they do have a physicality, so, to me it isn’t too big of a reach to think they could be intercepted. Naturally, like any of our senses, some are obviously more tuned in than others.
You know me, from our conversations, and I tend to get “out there” pretty quickly when it comes to the mysterious and spiritual. But, I have experienced ESP and know it is real. Now, Bigfoot, I am still waiting for that evidence. 🙂 Good stuff! I always enjoy your posts, as you know, and thought this was interesting.
