ODIN'S AVIARY

So, it'll be November again soon. I'm still working on "last year's book," The Spinning Wheel, and don't even know if it will ever be pushed on publishers. But ... what if I could do it again?

  What is never the same, that you can always count on?         Hmm…    Wait! I’m not done!          Very well.    What comes when you least want it, and leaves when you most need it?          ...Is that the end?    No!         I apologize.    AND: What do we always need, yet never accept?         So. If I under~stand you. I must guess what is in all ways different and in all ways accountable, unwanted there, and necessary gone, and all~ways needed, and never, ever taken?    Wait…. Yes. Yes, exactly.         O, but it is so simple, youngling.   It is I. It is Change.
