“Adelie penguins spend their whole lives looking for that one other penguin and when they meet them, they know. And they spend the rest of their lives together.”                      ~ Josie, Never Been Kissed

Human beings are creatures of attachment.  Like those Adelie penguins out in the wild, we go through life forming bonds with other human beings.  Some are obvious, fulfilling and natural.  Others are hard work, frustrating, and full of heartache.  They can be consuming, inconvenient and occasionally ridiculous.  Or even earth shattering, momentous and life changing.  We are like moths drawn to a flame, our spirit searching for that one person who will stir our soul and at the same time tame us.  

But is it possible that some are simply not meant to be tamed?  Perhaps instead there are those that need to run free and can only be truly happy when they find that someone just as wild to run with them.
