Or so it would seem that it’s a small world. At times my sense of place seems completely separate from everything and everyone else. Then I feel that everything is connected.
This usually happens when I see people. Have you ever noticed how everyone looks like someone else? Is that how we deal with our own reality? By associating everything we see in context to everything we already know?
In that way the world does seem small. I see people all the time and get that “How do I know that person?” feeling. It happened 2 times last night while I was enjoying sushi with some friends (sidetrack – I love love sushi – I have to put that in for good measure).
I know Minneapolis is a fairly small town when you think about it. I always run into the same strangers. Does that still make them strangers?
