Another Outlander-less week down, 22 to go. How are you all surviving? I haven’t quite devolved into eating my hair and rocking back and forth in the corner saying “James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser” over and over again, but I’m not ruling it out.
Well, it’s Sunday, so that means Question of the Week, and here it is:
Do you believe in soul mates and have you met any of yours?
We know that Claire isn’t the first woman Jamie was attracted to (he said virgin, not monk) and Jamie certainly wasn’t Claire’s first, but they understand almost right away there is something between them, (we’re glad of that, because otherwise it would have been a verra short story) something strong, bendable but not breakable, and perhaps un-explainable.
Now, I asked the question the way I did, because, I DO believe in soul mates, but I don’t believe they are all romantic. You can have more than one soul mate in your life. I have not yet met my romantic soul mate, but I’m still drawing breath, so there is still hope. But I have met a sister (we have different parents, but we’re sisters) soul mate. Her name is Nicole and I answered an ad in the newspaper for a roommate 13 years ago, and from the moment we met, we knew we were meant to be in each other’s lives. What is between us is strong, bendable, but not breakable, and perhaps un-explainable. I love her like family, more than some blood relatives and I can’t imagine my life without her in it.
I’m holding out for my Jamie. I know he’s out there somewhere and I’m certain I’ll know him when I meet him. And I’ll not settle for less.
So, your turn…tell us about YOUR soul mates.
