That's lovely. I like the form, too. I had to look up "odi" but then realized I should have recognized it from 'odium'.

It speaks to me of comfortableness somehow, the comfort of familiarity, the world becoming less and less new to us as we age. What it actually feels like to age is not so much that we ourselves get older as that the world is more and more familiar. Does that make any sort of sense?
