I was recently catching up on my Brazilian friend’s blog found at the link here where he writes poetry, about his travels, and thoughts. Very similar to the rest of us people who blog.

He frequently mentions a concept of “connections” and what influences him to speak to strangers. I find this concept quite foreign. What does one base a connection on? What does one feel when said connection exists? How do you know that this connection isn’t just attraction? If that’s the case, then is a connection really just an attraction based on physical characteristics?

I could go on and on with this, have a million and a half more related and unrelated questions but I won’t for the sake of sanity.

And so I leave you with this summarizing question: What is a connection between two people, and how is it formed?
