For One

Something from the other day, but this time sans head and brew. What it is is strange. (and an instant fondness for that sentence, though I suspect there may need to be a comma after the first “is”) And strange is what I’ve been gravitating towards more and more lately.

Is “strange” as undefinable (or subjectively definable) as “beautiful?” It’s not as pigeonholed as “surreal,” but I’m sure, on first thought here, that strangeness varies from person to person.

My recent guilty pleasure (visual attraction so to speak, but not in that way), is to people’s unfortunate expressions between expressions. The half-blinking eyes, the mouth agog, the portrait photographer’s constant nemesis. There’s a humanness to it. It’s what we literally don’t see when conversing with someone, it doesn’t even register, it’s an in-between. Strange.

But here, strangeness up for interpretation.
