How often do you come across people who are like a complete reflection of you but in a different phase of life?
You feel like there are parallel lives going side by side through and into this cosmos.
It is one of the most wonderful things about the process of living. To find a soul sister. For her to just be in this universe, at the same time as you is a source of utter and complete solace.

Suddenly all her scars were lit, accompanying her on the journey like an unwanted caravan of chaotic pilgrims.
