  • Particles that become entangled are deeply connected regardless of the distance between them. If they become separated by the width of the Universe, the bond between them remains intact.
    ~Justin Mullins (excerpt)

    "That's it! I'm getting my hair dyed tomorrow. I'm kinda scared they won't get the color right though..." - This is translated from Spanish, from my friend Nella, text chatting with me from Uruguay.

    "You are kidding me! I have an appointment for color tomorrow as well!".

    As it turns out, at exactly 10:30 am PST, both our heads will be covered with a coloring paste, 6536.5 miles apart. After ignoring the growing number of gray hairs for a while, both of us decided to yield to the coloring trend for the first time. At the same time.

    "Now don't you go and tell me you started running again this week!"

    "Yes, I did, actually".

    "Me too!"

    When Nella first approached me in high school and asked if she may join my basketball team, we didn't know we were already connected. We have identical birthmarks on our backs. We both also have a scar on our right eyebrows. I got mine when I smashed my face against the bathroom towel holder while playing hide-and-seek. She got hers while jumping on top of her grandma's bed and landing on the headboard. We were both eight at the time.

    As we became team mates, then friends, then sisters, we learned that we shared many other characteristics, like the fact that we can't talk about our emotions -good or bad- without crying.

    "Ok. Gotta go. Kisses. I love you and miss you even more when those 'small' coincidences happen".

    Me too.
