    I Am Wondering

    I used to believe in the concept wholeheartedly, but I gotta tell you, after the last so called "kindred spirits" did what they did, I can't help but wonder, is there even such a thing? I still have a bit of hope left inside me for it.

    Nothing Quite Like Them.

    I was introduced to the concept of the kindred spirit from reading Anne of Green Gables many years ago.  I'm not sure if that's where the term originated.  I loved Anne dearly, and related to her a lot... I didn't think that Diana was a very good kindred spirit though...
