My only Parlor Trick


Lately, I've been reminded that I have just this one little odd thing I can do.

I can write with both hands at once in mirror image, with the left hand writing backwards.

I can write backwards with either hand.

I can write upside-down with either hand.

And I can draw with both hands on the same image at the same time.

But, if I do any of these things, especially the mirror-writing, for very long, I have felt a sudden split inside my head, a hollowness, a white space, a terrible, terrible fear that something very bad might happen.

And then I quit doing it.
