Twin Tapes: Transcription #1

The respondent was asked to comment on the following phrase:
Image hosted by
Respondent: Young Adult Female
Location: Lopinot, Trinidad
Young Adult Female: The beginning of it, you'd think that the twin ... being someone that is close to you - whether a mother that you've lost ... Like with me, I lost my mother. Or a best friend. Somebody that you're really close with. So close it's like a twin - somebody who understands you, who knows how you ... knows you, then. Somebody you can be free with. But then the latter part of it says "as if I've lost part of myself" ... and it makes you wonder if it indicates that losing of one's ... connecting with one's self ... (pause) because from time to time we get so caught up in life ... You become distracted and absorbed with external things. You lose touch with your inner self. So it could be that too. This is my feeling ... that it's more that. Losing touch with with that inner self ... than a physical person. And ... what? Basically that. Losing touch with that you ... that real you ... that natural, free, truthful you.
When asked to think of a colour that she felt matched the statement, the respondent chose the colour GREY.
Tomorrow: Not everyone wants to answer ...
If you haven't said it already, what does it mean to you?
- Happy Hippy -
