In between walking and playing with him, I’ve been creating book bin labels for my new and improved classroom library.
I tried to think about the books I currently own (and the books I dream of having) when creating these. Meacham’s Classroom Snapshots, to help guide me along.
It was magical, and then, quite quickly, dissolved by the sobering light of day, by the pressures of real life. It took time for many of even the most loving couples to feel like kindred spirits.
If that man was my soul mate, soul mates are overrated. Tolkien, who was married to his wife, Edith, from her teens until her death at age 82. It takes, or at any rate has in the past taken, the young man’s eye off women as they are” — that is, “companions in shipwreck not guiding stars.”I love that: companions in shipwreck. It wasn’t something that happened in the first hour, or even in the first year.
Finding your soul mate is basically finding that one person (arguably one of several) who has the right traits – traits that are relevant to you as an individual.
In other words: You have to find a person whom you can put up with and who, more importantly, can put up with you. If love isn't much more than the way that you perceive a person, then you need to find someone who you can perceive as being amazing for as long as you live.

“you’ll only find true love in one lifetime out of ten thousand.”A cousin of mine gave a wedding toasts along these lines at his brother’s wedding: He calculated the odds of ever finding the one person “meant for you,” given the billions of people on the planet, the number of people you’re likely to meet in the course of your life, and the fact that in the scheme of human history, none of us stays in a corporeal body for very long.
Does this mean that your partner needs to live up to the supermodel standard?
I hope not because then 99 percent of the world will be very lonely.
