It is in the ongoing death flow 1:40 PM Thursday afternoon here in West Michigan. Existence keeps zooming by.

My wife and I both got up around 6:15 AM this morning. While my wife read her Bible (my wife reads through the Holy Bible every year) I made for breakfast a pot of oatmeal. I also made a fresh pot of coffee to have with our mush. I ate my oatmeal in the dining room and after breakfast I messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read 'The Works of William Perkins' Volume 3 Commentary on Hebrews Chapter 11 verse 8 "By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went" Hebrews 11:8.

The morning went by quietly. Carol left this morning around 10:45 AM to do errands and have lunch with girlfriends. After lunch she was going to visit her elderly friend Pam and go to a grocery store. While Carol was gone I made a video for my Booktube channel and read from a book titled, 'The Diaries of Emilio Renzi-Formative Years' by Ricardo Piglia Translated by Robert Croll Introduction by Ilan Stavans.

Yesterday I basically read all day from a book titled, 'The Art Of Flight' by Sergio Pitol Translated From The Spanish By George Henson. I went to bed early and read 'The Art Of Flight' till I got sleepy. Now it is another day to wait it out. Next Thursday my wife will be visiting our daughter and her family for a week in Denver Colorado. I will stay here in a state of contemplative silence.

I do not know what else to report this afternoon so I will close to wait for it to happen.

"[1] What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?
[2] For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.
[3] For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
[4] Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.
[5] But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Romans 4:1-5


a celebration of reading as a vital, existential activity

It is 1:10 PM Wednesday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a cold gray day. I am thankful it is not snowing. Due to the recent warm weather a lot snow has melted. We are now under a flood warning here in Michigan. I am glad we are not close to any rivers.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up made myself a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then read till Carol got home from a book titled, 'The Art Of Flight' a multigenre literary memoir by Sergio Pitol Translated From The Spanish By George Henson. Carol got home from work around 9:05 AM. She was home late from work because it took a long time to scrape all the ice of the windows of the car.

I left this morning around 9:55 AM to visit thrift stores. Before I left this morning I called a friend to see if he wanted to visit thrift stores with me, he did so on the way to thrift stores I picked up my friend.

I found these used books this morning at thrift stores-

My friend Tim did not want to go out for lunch because he had a AAA meeting at Noon. So on the way back home I dropped off Tim at his AAA meeting and drove home. So has gone by existence.

Carol is off tonight and tomorrow night. Next week Wednesday Carol leaves for Denver Colo. for a week to visit our daughter and her family.

I suppose I will close to wait to see what happens next.

It is 11:07 AM late Tuesday morning in the death flow. Outside it is raining and it is warm. We are having another February thaw. We are under a flood warning here in Michigan.

I got up this morning around 6:45 AM. I got up made myself some oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read William Perkin's commentary on Hebrews Chapter 11 in volume 3 of 'The Works of William Perkins'.

Carol got home from work around 8:45 AM and had face time on her cell phone with our daughter Beth and her three small children. Carol went to bed around 9:30 AM for the day. I have been wandering the house. I fed our birds and wrote in my paper diary. I also posted this morning a video I made last night for my Booktube channel.

Last night I basically read 'Darkman' a novel by Nicola Barker and made a video. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM.

So existence keeps rolling along faster and faster. I have nothing to do today but watch the rain fall.

I did get out of the lower level library a book titled, 'The Merry Heart: Reflections On Reading, Writing, And The World Of Books' by Robertson Davies to look at today.

Well I will close to feel wasted. Carol brought home this morning a brownie for me and I ate it. Now I feel sick inside because these days rich food makes me feel ill.

I did think of leaving the house today to visit thrift stores in search of used books, but I have books coming in the mail this week. Plus I am too tired to step outside into the dead american world. I will now close.
