The World's Fascination with twins..
I'll admit that there is something intriguing about twins, well i should say identical twins, not so much fraternal cos i jus think of them differently to identical twins... like an identical twin is a mirror image of you.. you in another body.. which can be quite interesting to a lot of people.. I have quite a lot of friends who are identical twins and i was jus skimming through fb there and noticed that even in families with more children (than just the twins) they always seem to be near each other.. even if living seperately with their families etc.. you might see the rest of siblings in kansas, florida, illinois but both of them will live right there in ny - seperate locales but nearby....
why are twins fascinating to me? i dunno.. just the thought of another person that looks exactly like you, out there.. cos while you may have siblings that look similar to you, they dont look exactly like you. . of course i can see twins being bugged out by the questions people must ask them constantly lol.. my friends have told me some random stories that made me laugh... and i will confess that for some of them, i still can't tell them apart.. lol. and while at times i do wonder what it would be like to have a virtual clone (physically).. i surmise that it might be like having any other sibling..
i read this story too about kyrie and brielle jackson years ago
This picture is from an article called "The Rescuing Hug". The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby's heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.
and while the skeptic in me wonders about the ability of a newborn to stretch its hand around its sibling.. cos to me the child hand look bent backward rather than being in line with its body... but its a sweet sentiment regardless.. and it adds to the world's fascination...
this article in twins magazine is quite interesting..
