Our featured Twin Soul comes from the American past, a beloved writer, Mark Twain. Before he became the famous writer and personality, before he left his job as a steamship steersman, he met the woman who would haunt his dreams for the rest of his life. Her name was Laura Wright, and they met aboard a steamship when she was fourteen.
It seems it was a chance encounter, and ended when her father took her and her family off the ship the next day, yet it made such an impression on the young writer that he continued to think of her even until late in life. If you would like to read his essay on the relationship, I would invite you to sit and savor My Platonic Sweetheart. The thing I found most interesting about this essay is how the author and the sweetheart keep meeting age after age, life after life. It's like he is alluding to reincarnation and the recurring Twin Soul relationship. Fascinating stuff.
