“There is at times a magic in identity of position; it is one of the things that have suggested to us eternal comradeship.”

~E.M.  Forster, A Room with a View.

One of my all-time favorite books

and  certainly one of those that has become a lens for viewing the world. This quote to me describes those times when two people are looking at the same scene or have experienced or are experiencing the same thing, and that gives an illusion of (or somehow a real?) intimacy.  It is a rather peculiar, fleeting phenomenon, and is often responsible for me falling in love — at least on that wonderful, imaginary, transient level.
