I was so inspired by my adventures while traveling throughout Europe, India, Nepal, Tibet, China, and other exotic locales that I had to write something. Then one day early last year, an idea started to take form quickly. I was finally enabled to weave some of my stories and integrate them into one of the best love story adventures to come along in years.

Being someone’s soulmate is the ultimate achievement in a relationship. It may not necessarily even be your spouse, although preferred. It could be your best friend. It could also be someone you have never met, or may met once a long time ago and always wondered...

What is a soul mate, anyway? Webster's definition: “somebody with whom somebody else naturally shares deep feelings and attitudes”….We all need and want to be there, don't we? And I am sure there are many that are already there.

I think many people search their whole lives looking for their soulmate, especially one they can be attracted to physically, and of course sharing deep feelings and attitudes.

How do you know you have found your soulmate? To compartmentalize a relationship, it starts (usually) with a physical attraction. Of course the same or similar mental capacity and compatibility. Finally, it's that spiritual connection that transforms the couple into being soul mates aNd falling in love is as natural and wonderful as anything you've ever known.

Danny Benson, our hero in OVERLAND, thought he had his soulmate in Heather. She was the reason he went on this long adventure in the first place. But he was so consumed by his medical school studies he lost sight of the fact she really wasn’t his soulmate anymore but only until it was too late.

When he met "__________", what I'll call the “secret” of OVERLAND, Danny’s whole world changed. Between the two, Heather and “the secret”, the clarity of what a soulmate is became defined, quickly!

Interestingly, the feedback I have received from those that have read OVERLAND, not everybody falls in love with “the secret”. In fact, some people prefer Heather. Two very distinct women are characterized within OVERLAND.

So the questions remain: how do you find such a person that can become your soul mate? And how do you really know its right?

Comments are welcome!

I might be one of the lucky ones who married her soul mate :) He gifted me an inspirational art that radiates love and respect.

Great post, it is very touching.
