One day while showing me some childhood photos my wife turned to a photograph of herself and another little girl hugging either side of a large human-sized chipmunk at a famous Floridian theme park.
“Who is that other little girl?”
“I have no idea.”
“What do you mean, you have no idea? Why did you have you picture taken with her?”
“It was a crowded day. Kids were just running up in a constant stream to get their pictures taken. She was just there at the same time as me.”
I wonder how many times that other little girl has had a similar conversation. Two completely different lives that converged in a mirror image of each other for one brief moment, forever smiling in a photograph.
Toronto! I am coming to see you this weekend! Lets hang out and talk about rocket ships!
