September 24 – Fate keeps taking me

Fate keeps taking me
places do not want to go
stranger is myself

I stole the lines, ‘Fate keeps taking me, places do not want to go,’ from a preview of the TV Show, Lodge 49.

Describing me, my life right now, too well to be ignored, I shamelessly took the line.

‘Gaed a Wyrd Swa Hio Scel’ it says in Beowulf, or, ‘Fate goes ever as she shall

The older I get, the further I seem to move away from what is familiar and comfortable.

Who I am is a stranger to myself.

Who this person is, is still me.

I am comfortable and familiar with that.
