Can strange things happen, that matters. I don't know, but strange indeed are the day's I live in. To keep sane is a big struggle and without ears plugged with music. I would not know where I would be.

Anyhow here is a spooky story.

I met an old woman a couple a weeks back and she talked about many things, fools and queens, high and low. But what I previously did not remember was how she spoke about a book, her exact words I don't know, but she talked about an o and a dot.

Then I forget about her, and a week later I sat down and thought a poem on a piece of math would be so perfect. Thinking about my old ford and the day's back when I was young I got into the right mood of writing the poem. And the dance went on. At the end I saw that it was not perfect. I wanted to move the text to the right and wrote "o." at the beginning without knowing why, I just did it cause writing a poem is to express feelings and then I just relax and let the hand walk across the keyboard. So, focus! It struck me, just struck me, don't ask me why,..., why don't write "o.o" instead of "o." and so I did. And so I did.

And so I did, I need to keep that python syntax correct, don't I.

And time passes, life went boring and I took a walk to the library. I stood there just feeling empty and pointed the finger at a shelf of books, letting the finger wander from book to book, reading the titles without thinking, and then I picked, as it felt, randomly, the Illusionist by Fowler.

This is a kind of cool book and in the beginning the character of importance move to a lonely place, becomes depressed and decide to shoot himself with a shotgun. And at the moment the trigger is supposed to go off, Fowler writes the characters o and dot. Probably, to make an illusion of end of life.

The effect of this happening to me is tremendous. I had a brother you know, and his life did not end with an illusion. I took a long walk and did not calm down until I met a family of deers that just stood there about 10m in front of me, relaxing, and reminded me about how life goes on.
