Meet Marcus. He is my “Spirit Twin”. Funny Guy! We all must have someone out there on us who is destined to be your spirit twin. What is this preposterous thing called a spirit twin you ask? Basically it is someone out there in this world who is basically the same person as you on many levels (emotionally, psychologically, possible even physically to some extent).  If you have ever se ... >
