"Soul Mates, Cellmates, and Everyone in Between".
He then goes on to write, "sometimes we do meet our soul mate, the person with whom we are meant to share the rest of our life, but sometimes people come into our life at a particular point for a particular reason, and once they've served that purpose, they leave....
People do use us and we use them, because we need to learn some lesson from one another."

but after my children were born it became apparent (although, I should have noticed it before) that there was another cellmate living not too far away as well (my mother-in-law) who wanted to run the cell-block.
Which I let her do, more or less, for most of the 25 year marriage.
The marriage started to hit the skids when my father-in-law died suddenly of a heart attack in 2010, leaving my mother-in-law and wife devastated.
The trouble was that my wife, as she puts it, put up walls around herself when her father died.
The marriage became very much a case of two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, to reference another Pink Floyd song.
Her mother's house is #17 and my wife's house is number #18, in the same street.

But, I have to say that since my father-in-law's death, life has definitely become more stranger than fiction.

Trouble is that when you have children together, you will both be cell-mates for life, to some degree, even after a jailbreak.

And his book Another Door Opens is a must read, as far as I'm concerned.
Also, when I was reading his book, there was a story about Johnny Depp befriending a child cancer patient and I was wondering if he still did this kind of thing anymore?
A few hours after reading that passage I see a news story about him visiting child cancer patients in a hospital in my hometown of Brisbane.
