Now I become myself. It's taken time, many years and places...

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought

there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels

bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that

she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and 

read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.

-Frida Kahlo

i feel incredibly lucky to have come across a few people who are my soul twins. we read each other's thoughts and our humors resonate with each other. we're not bound by blood, but it feels like our heartstrings are intertwined.
