We have two dogs – one white, one gold, born years and probably hundreds of kilometres apart, and raised (for the most part) in entirely different circumstances.

But since they’ve begun their cohabitation, it’s as if they’ve become connected or joined by some invisible force, that makes them move together, sleep together, walk together, in almost perfect synchronisation. A gentle union that keeps the gold one company and the white one sane.


I wonder if that’s what Mr T & I are doing after all these years – two separate bodies moving up and down in loose synchronisation, rising and falling in undulating waves without trying, and without even knowing we’re doing it anymore.

Or are we a random result of synchronicity?
