To catch a falling star

I believe in soul mates.

I believe there are people you are meant to meet in this world.

That your souls connect instantly – Far before we can judge someone on economic status,  IQ, or political views. We are already bound to each other, like some cosmic connection happens that is almost out of our control.    As if we have known each other forever, long before we ever physically met.

And you meet those people at all ages, as children, as teenagers , as adults.

When you do , it’s like standing under the midnight sky and catching a falling star.

In a world that is falling apart at the seams, I think it’s more important than ever to hold on to those we have connected to , the ones we call ” our tribe”, the ones that for whatever reason, at whatever time in our lives- we met and we connected with.

So many terrible things are going on in the world as a whole, and in our own personal lives.

Sadness, anger, loss, illness, violence.  We don’t trust each other, we don’t believe in the good, we have lost our dreams and our vision.


We are searching for the meaning

We get lost in the shuffle

We spread ourselves to thin

We run ourselves in to the ground trying to be perfect, trying to succeed, reaching for something bigger and better than what we have right now.


And then I see pictures like this and it breaks my heart wide open


It reminds me of the only thing that matters in this life

A connection like this, where all the stars aligned , and gave us a gift.




“SOUL MATES”- That’s all that matters.

When you find them, your heart knows, at any age from four to Eighty Four.


Sometimes, just sometimes everyone else gets to see it – like I did in this picture of my granddaughter and her best friend .

More connections like this.

That is what the world needs.

  1. I love this. Please write a book dear. You’re funny, articulate and insightful. I would buy it! I believe in soul mates and cosmic connections…but sometimes if you’re young enough you don’t see it for what it is. Thank goodness for persistence and second chances!

  2. What an amazing picture! When I first read “soul-mates” I was confused about your definition, and it threw me off, but then I saw that picture and the word “connection.” When I was little, I was a big fan of Anne of Green Gables. The term she used was “kindred spirits.” Your picture reminds me of that, and I agree. Soul-connections, kindred spirits – this is the stuff of life.
