“I have to tell you, you look so much like xxxxx it’s spooky.”
“You look just like my masseuse.”
“You look just like my sister-in-law.”
“You look just like this woman who catches my train – do you have a sister?”
“You look just like….. somebody else…… what’s her name……..”
Does this happen to everyone? Does everyone have an unlimited number of doppelgangers in the world? Are there really a ‘fleet’ of us wandering around – not aware of each other’s existence?
In the last year I’ve even been shown a few of these people, and I have to say I think I look nothing like them, but it makes me wonder how much of ourselves we think we see when we look in the mirror. I think I know what I look like, but perhaps I don’t. Perhaps when I see myself I look at my perfect ears and broad shoulders, and what is most apparent is the fact that I am an hourglass pear with very straight hair and glasses. Or the fact that I am on the short side. Or the way I walk, and that I have an earthy energy about me. Perhaps I have no idea what I ‘look’ like.
Perhaps it doesn’t matter anyway.;)
