Postbox Fairy

Something in the darkening sky.

Feeling odd. Not bad, just odd. Odd is the opposite of even. Even means balanced, a ship on an even keel. Does that mean that odd means unbalanced? Off-centre, yes, that's what I am, like those funny balls at the science museum that have their centre of gravity on one side so when you roll them they swerve oddly, and seem to be under the influence of strange forces, even though it's really just gravity.

The weirdest thing is, this is the third year in a row that I've made a downbeat entry on November 19th (though the one from last year is private, and the one from the year before last is friends only)
