I held up the 5 of hearts, smiling and blathering on about the meaning behind our meeting. How the many deaths of disparate people made us who we are and brought us together in this bright beautiful world. How the soul of a person bursts into a million pieces, scattering in the ether, only to fuse with the pieces of others until it is whole again. A curious dream of reincarnation and immortality. The 5 of hearts significant in its representation of our senses, working together to help us find one another.
Your eyes were lit up with joy as we spoke through the laughter, hypothesizing about the people we were and the adventures we must have had. We wondered if soulmates are the pieces reconnecting and how a person could have more than one, and maybe that’s why people fall in and out of love.
