That Other Feeling

There are days when I feel that I am inexplicably Other. Other from other people. Friends, family, companions, peers. Other even from myself. It’s difficult to explain. It’s not a feeling of sadness or anger. It’s more a feeling of being off-center, of having slipped slightly to the left or something. Like I am standing beside my world rather than within it.

I feel like Alice, sometimes. That I am, somehow, not quite myself. Though, I suppose that might be true for many of us.
