A few posts ago I mentioned watercolours and Miz Elen said they were one of her favourite art expressions.  Go look at her header then come back and compare it to this splash I created twenty years ago. 

They're not exactly the twins I thought they were but it's hardly a surprise we're drawn to similar looks.  Just as Stashaholic mentioned she was researching e-Readers at the same time as I wrote a blog about them, these coincidences can only mean one thing. We are attracted to people through common interests. Admittedly, I didn't know Elen liked Motown and watercolours when we first began our interaction but as the friendship has developed we've introduced each other to new things (Mad Men) as well as sharing others (MI5). The more you get to know someone, the more you learn you have in common. 

I'm going to try applying that homily to random strangers who pique my interest.  I wonder if instant attraction can be attributed to a deeper understanding of individuals that is intuited on a cellular level...


  1. You never know what you're going to have in common with someone until you try them on for size :)

    As for your reminded me more of the place where I draw my daily tarot card:

  2. You always know a member of your own tribe.

    I read that at some point as a child and it comes back to me when I feel that instant relation to someone.

    I think the watercolor is quite beautiful.

  3. I love that bit of watercolor. I definitely see similarities. Who knows what else we'll learn about each other over time. Pretty cool!

  4. Coincidences, serendipity, past shared lives...sounds like a short or novel in the making! LOL.

    Just a lurker,
