- In a Former Life
I'm a little bit reluctant to post about this sort of thing because I don't want people to think I'm weird. But I think about this subject from time to time. I'm not super sure I believe in past-lives but it's fun to speculate.
I have these random interests that don't make much sense logically that make me wonder. For example, I have this fascination with Mt. Everest. I love reading anything I can get my hands on about it. I love books about people who have climbed Mt. Everest. Do I ever want to do it? Hell. No. I am super afraid of heights and really have no interest at all in mountain climbing. So climbing Mt. Everest would be the last thing I would ever want to do. So why am I drawn to stories about it? Was I there before?
Another thing I'm super interested in is the French Revolution. Again, anything I can get my hands on about it I will read.
Plinky asks the question, "what other person" could you have been. It is kind of a difficult one to answer. It's hard to pinpoint that exactly. It's more like places or time periods that feel familiar.
Portland feels very familiar to me. Granted, I did visit a few times growing up so that might be why but it's more than that. If I trust my gut, I can drive around Portland and know exactly where I'm going without looking at a map or relying on GPS. It's very strange. And when I'm driving through I get this little lift in my heart, like I'm happy to be there. I don't know how else to describe it except to say that it feels familiar. Like an old friend.
