Given that today has taken a decidedly weird turn, I think keeping a journal will be useful. Whether that's because it chronicles an encounter with some magical force from another world or because it will help someone at a mental institution figure out what sort of medications to give me, I can't say, but either way, probably a good idea.
So, today I was taking a walk in the countryside. As I relaxed by a window, I heard a strange chiming sound and witnessed the appearance of a strange expanse of blueness. It was kind of hard to look directly at it; it seemed like there was some sort of weird distortion around it. It quickly vanished again, though not before something fell out of it. Rushing over to investigate, I found a circle of stones around the spot where the blue thing (I'm assuming some sort of portal for the time being) appeared. At the center were two books, wrapped in a cloth map, with an ankh amulet on top.
The map is of a world unfamiliar to me. I can't read the writing on it; it's in some sort of runic lettering.
The cover of one of the books is legible, but antiquated: The History of Brittania, as told by Kyle the Younger.
The other book is...sort of unnerving. It's made of something resembling leather, but from some creature with dark red skin. And no, I don't think it's dyed. The writing on the cover is in the same strange runic text, with an image of a serpent at the bottom.
I think I'll start with the nice, legible, nonthreatening history book.
