Friday Fictioneers – Symmetry

They say that the human mind looks for symmetry.  That’s part of what we perceive as beauty.  It also helps us logically form patterns which allows us to comprehend and store information in a more efficient way.

I’m going to be honest: I’m asymmetrical.

I don’t have my life together: it’s catawampus.  I’m stumbling over myself.

I’m going to be honest again: you’re asymmetrical, too.

That’s not to say you’re not beautiful- you are!  I’m just relating your undeniable mess of financial burden and decaying health to mine.

I just ask you stay with me, because when we stare face-to-face, eye-to-eye, we’re beautifully in symmetry.

  1. Very well written. I love the ongoing look at symmetry and asymmetry and the amusing descriptions you put with it. I also like your use of the word catawampus. That word sounds hilarious, even when it stands alone.
