THE MINOTAUR AND THE BALL OF YARN
It could be three days from now, and I could still be found sitting at the Turku City Library, rambling on about what the Minotaur did next.
But luckily for us all, it is today.
Today, when I was lucky enough to receive a consultation from The Mythical Department of Self Exploration and World Arrangement, during which a thought of mine was carefully investigated, recorded and archived. All this was done very respectfully. My thought was not dissected, but studied, sensed, given form.
It was also introduced to a Minotaur, who graced it with a visit.
While in my thought, the Minotaur found a ball of red yarn. Now Minotaurs, as we know, have a reputation of definitely not playing with balls of yarn, not even when no one is looking.
This one did.
That´s why it was so difficult to stop telling the story about the Minotaur visiting my thought.
