On the old Instagram the other day I snapped this little beauty, which now sits on the sill in my studio. Then, last night I was doing a little reading and I read about Odradek - a small character that appears in Kafka's The Cares of a Family Man. Odradek is a star shaped spool of cotton, not unlike mine, who speaks a bit, but not properly - just communicates and moves around, a bit like mine.
A nice read for Toot lovers to ponder maybe.
Other peoples Odradeks: (Odradek Odradek Odradek). I think mine might be the real one though.
