It is now in the death flow 4 o'clock PM Saturday afternoon. I am down in the lower level waking up from a short nap. All monsters need their beauty sleep.

I had a normal time at the library used books store today. I brought home from the book nook these used books to add to our library-

"The Daylight Gate" a novel by Jeanette Winterson

"The Silver Swan" a novel by Benjamin Black (pen name for the writer John Banville)

"Charles Dickens" [Penguin Lives Series] by Jane Smiley

"Translators Revived" a biographical memoir of the authors of the English version of the Holy Bible the King James Version/Translation by Alexander McClures

"The Cairo Affair" a spy novel by Olen Steinhauer

While at the book nook I read with much enjoyment the novel, "Open City" by Teju Cole.

When I got home from the library I found Carol cooking and Josie Joy taking a nap.

I will close to go up for air. Existence keeps decaying. Tomorrow is the first day of May 2016. All we can do is scream, "Holy Molly!".

30th-Apr-2016 08:36 am - He knows the boundlessness of Himself
It is in the death flow 8:25 AM Saturday morning. A gray cloud morning here in West Michigan. It is suppose to rain today.

I got up this morning around 5:46 AM. I got up because I was tired of dreaming. So I got up made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. I got our main computer working so we do not have to buy a new computer this coming Monday. I like to have several computers scattered through our cell. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read for devotions some of the book, "A Treatise On True Theology With The Life Of Franciscus Junius" by Franciscus Junius (1530-1595). Josie woke up so I got her up and gave her a bottle. After awhile Carol got up to get the dance going.

I made oatmeal for breakfast. I cleaned the kitchen and now I am writing in my online diaries. Carol is messing with Josie in the sun room. Existence is slowly decaying.

This morning I once again volunteer at the Herrick District Public Library used books store from 10 o'clock AM till 1 PM. I do not what I will do when I get home from the library book nook.

Last night I watched TV with my wife and she went to bed early. I stayed up late and read "Open City" a novel by Teju Cole.

Yesterday I did get around to mowing our lawn and working on my wild flower garden. Well I suppose I will close to feel dislocated.

29th-Apr-2016 09:46 am - lost in space
It is now in the Flow 9:40 AM Friday morning Eastern Standard Time. Outside this morning it is cold, rainy, and ugly gray.

I got up this morning around 6:05 AM. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. Carol and Josie got up and I made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. Little baby Josie loves to eat. It is a blessing to be able to feed our granddaughter. My heart goes out to all those millions who can not feed their children or grandchildren. We live in such a sad world.

After breakfast we went grocery shopping and when we got home I put away the groceries as Nonie read books to Josie. So has gone by our morning thus far. Soon Josie will go down for a nap and then when she gets up I do not know what we will do.

Last night I read my books and went to bed around 10:30 PM. I slept better last night. It is a blessing to have a warm bed to sleep in at night. I think of all the millions of homeless people through out the world and my heart breaks into weeping.

I will close to feel lost in space.

28th-Apr-2016 08:17 pm - the Word made flesh
It is now in the life flow 8:01 PM Thursday night Eastern Standard Time. We put Josie Joy down for the night. She cried herself to sleep. I am sure she misses her own bed and her Mom and Dad. I faintly remember how it felt as a small boy to be left with people who were not my parents. Well I never really had parents. I just remember feeling abandoned.

It has been a long day and I plan to go to bed early. I slept poorly last night and hope I sleep better tonight. I always sleep poorly when Carol is off from work. I am a light sleeper and when I sleep with my wife I tend to wake up a lot during the night. I am sure I will be a physical wreck by next week due to lack of sleep. I can't take naps because we are having a new bathroom built down in the lower level.

Today I received in the mail a book I had ordered titled, ""Literchoor Is My Beat" A Life Of James Laughlin, Publisher Of New Directions" biography by Ian S. MacNiven.

I have been reading so many books lately that I have lost count. I need to focus on just a couple of books and not twenty. All the words in these books appear to me in my inner eye as a long river of words. All words are One vast stream going into infinity.

I read today this book mainly, "A Treatise On True Theology With The Life Of Franciscus Junius" Translated By David C. Noe. I finished reading today the life of Franciscus Junius (1530-1595). I looked at my new book on the life of James Laughin and read some of the book "Open City" a novel by Teju Cole.

Well, I am wasted so I will close to wait to go to bed. There is no way of escape.

28th-Apr-2016 09:57 am - true theology
It is in the flow 9:48 AM Thursday morning. A cold dark gray rainy morning here by Lake Michigan. Our main computer died this morning so I am writing on my lap top computer. It is always a bummer when a main computer dies because that means this coming Monday we will have to buy another one. Computers are a necessity for me. Computers keep me attached to the outside world/life line.

Carol left this morning to drive to Grand Rapids to pick up Josie Joy and bring her here.

I got up this morning around 6:33 AM. I got up and made a pot of coffee. When Carol got up I made for us a pot of oatmeal for breakfast.

After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and have been reading, "Open City" a novel by Tejo Cole. I started reading this novel last night.

I have no plans for the day ahead. I suppose I will close to drift.
27th-Apr-2016 08:05 pm - world at war
It is in the death flow 7:49 PM Wednesday night. Carol just told me there is the black cat. There are two black cats that come in our yard searching for prey, one is named Moses and the other black cat we do not its name. Moses is a big black cat whereas the other one is smaller. Sometimes when I am outside walking our yard I come across a pile of bird feathers.

I had a normal day today. Nothing happened worth reporting this evening. I did volunteer at the Herrick District Public Library Used Bookstore for a couple of hours this afternoon. I covered for someone at the book nook. I brought home from the book nook two used books to ADD to our library-

"The Return" short stories by Roberto Bolano Translated by Chris Andrews

"The Historical Atlas Of The World At War" Maps And Illustrations Chronicle The Fascination And Dramatic Story Of The World At War by B. Brenda Lewis & Rupert Matthews

The library book nook was not busy so I read from a book I brought with me titled, "A Treatise On True Theology With The Life Of Franciscus Junius" Translated By David C. Noe and started reading a short story by Roberto Bolano.

When I got home from the book nook it was 5:06 PM. I ate dinner and so has gone by existence. Carol right now is in the sun room reading her Bible. She plans to go to bed soon. I will go to bed later. Do not know what I will read tonight.

Tomorrow morning Carol plans to drive over to Grand Rapids and pick up our granddaughter Josie Joy and bring her home. Caleb and Emily's plane flies out from GR around 1 o'clock PM for New Orleans LA.

There is nothing pressing on my mind this evening. I suppose I will close to wait it out.
It is 10:11 AM Wednesday morning in the flow of existence. This morning the sun is shining which is nice. Tomorrow it is suppose to rain.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I drank this morning coffee I made last night. I messed with our main computer and then I wrote in my paper diary. Carol got home from work around 8:45 AM and went to bed for the day. She is now off six nights from work. We are taking care of our granddaughter Josie Joy for four days this week.

This morning I have been reading, "Jesus Have I Loved, but Paul? A Narrative Approach To The Problem Of Pauline Christianity" by J. R. Daniel Kirk. This afternoon I cover for someone at the library book nook from 3 o'clock PM till 5 o'clock PM. Besides that I have nothing to do today. I might mow the lawn sometime today. I might rake some more dirt on my wild flower plot of earth. Right now I feel like closing my eyes and just drifting.

Last night I read some more of the book, "The Other Paris" by Luc Sante and made videos for my BookTube channel. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. Now it is another day to wander in circles.

Well, I suppose I will close to drift.
