She used this term about people she might meet that would some how have this deep connection with her.
I guess these days you might use "Soul Connection".
I've just met a couple of kindred spirits; Hellena and Currawong. Hellena blogs here at Spunout Post.
I've read her blog for ages and always admired Hellena. Not only for her amazing homespun, crochet/ felted creations and her wearable art, but also for her attitude, her spirit and her presence.
And now here they are, in my life and in my home.
It's strange meeting people from blog-land in real life. Good but strange! You feel like you already know these people, you know bits of their lives, you feel like you already know their kids and so much about them that when you meet you feel a bit overwhelmed.
Wow! I know you but I only just met you five minutes ago.
Meeting Hellena was awesome. We hugged, for a long time, we introduced our hundreds of kids (hehehe...we only have ten between us) and then we talked.
It's funny feeling, reading a blog and feeling so involved in an others life and maybe even commenting on that blog and interacting and THEN getting to speak with that blogs author in real life.
I'm not sure it'd be the same with everyone I might meet from blog-land but with Hellena it feels like meeting a soul sister. And her partner Currawong is everything she raves about him on her blog too.
I've met some people like me, unschoolers, pragmatic, down to Earth, real, totally real people. Honest and fun, crazy (in a good way) and it feels like the start of an awesome life-long friendship...am I gushing too much?
And the wonderful serendipitous thing is that they are looking for somewhere to stay and I am going to Thailand for 5 weeks and need house-sitters!

Lucky for us (our Thai unschooling lessons never really got off the ground!) Zan has this awesome App on his Ipod that translate English to Thai. The swearing section has kept us all amused today :)
