Philosophy Wire: Bound by dreams…

BNPS.co.uk (01202 558833)<br />Pic: BNPS<br /><br />Chloe Mayo and husband Michael on their wedding day<br /><br />Artist Chloe Mayo painted a picture of her perfect husband before setting eyes on an identical real-life version of the man she has married.<br /><br />Chloe, 31, created the prophetic image of a herself holding hands with a male partner who had a dark beard.<br /><br />She forgot about the hastily-painted picture and weeks later joined an online dating website.<br /><br />Chloe spent two months messaging Michael Goeman, 30, through the singles site before meeting him face to face.<br /><br />After dating for six weeks Chloe thought Michael's face looked familiar and then remembered her painting and realised he was the spitting image of the man she painted.<br /><br />Because the oil painting was so uncannily similar to Michael, she hid the canvas under her bed in fear he thought she may have been stalking him.<br /><br />When she finally revealed the image to him a week later he was stunned at the resemblance, but to her relief he was not put off and actually proposed 18-months later.<br /><br />The couple were married at a ceremony near their home in May 2012 and have proudly hung the painting up in their lounge in Worcester Park, near Croydon in Surrey.<br />Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-05-26]: She painted the man of her dreams. And then, some days later, she actually met him! [source: web news] They are now married happily ever after. How many of us are "married" to what they dreamed of? It happens every day... And that is a bad thing.
