with equal intensity

“I cannot cure myself of that most woeful of youth’s follies–thinking that those who care about us will care for the things that mean much to us.”
-D.H. Lawrence

I think at one time or another, we are all guilty of assuming that other people feel the same way about things we care about, with equal intensity.

I feel fortunate that I honestly believe in the intrinsic good of people. That people truly want honest connections with others. That we’re not just random particles drifting around space; that we’re magnetically drawn to one another for honest and real interactions; to build relationships and connections; the quantum theory that we change and react, even in the minutest way, merely by being observed.

While I don’t believe in fate or destiny, I do believe in soulmates. I think it’s beautiful when you find someone with whom you share such a deep and natural affinity that they simply change your life. I am fortunate to have found a few friends and a wonderful husband, just like that.
