Gaelle spent more time with her elderly patient than she did with others she nursed because she felt that their spirits were linked in some way. What connection did you see between them? Have you ever met someone with whom you felt an inexplicable tie?

I felt the connection was more on Gaelle's side than on Winter's. Gaelle certainly did feel drawn to her, perhaps being one of the few to see that there was more to the old woman than met the eye.

I don't know that I've ever felt that type of immediate kinship. There have been people in my life with whom I've formed close ties, but in every case I can think of the relationship grew slowly.

First they were both from Haiti so spoke some of the same language - little phrases that Gaelle would say to her seemed to calm her. Also I think that Gaelle felt sorry that no one ever visited Winter so spent some extra time with her.

Sometimes you meet someone who you instantly connect with or wish to know better at least. I have had that feeling that we were connected somehow.

I once worked in a hospital where most of the patients were elderly and terminal. I felt drawn to those who had no visitors, and to those who most reminded me of my grandparents. I enjoyed spending quiet time with them, I found it sad but also calming. Gaelle and Winter had a homeland in common and sometimes that can be enough to form a connection.

The connection is in the similarities between them and their circumstances.
Yes, I have often met people who sparked a connection with me.

I think Gaelle and her elderly patient had "like" spirits. They had similar spiritual powers that caused Gaelle to have a natural attachment to her patient. I have met people with whom I felt an inexplicable tie but in the same way, I have met people that I immediately felt a negative vibe without speaking or interacting with them.

Other than both being from Haiti, I think Gaelle wanted to be close to Winter because she felt that Winter had been displaced and she felt somewhat the same. The lack of language and family helped to make her closer.

Yes, I have had two people in my life that brought total connection and trust immediately. They both remain in my life.
