16th-Feb-2019 10:36 am - the degrading effects of urbanization
It is in the ongoing death flow 10:24 AM Saturday morning here in Michigan. It is a cold gray day today. It is suppose not snow or rain today.

I am having a difficult time staying awake this morning so I thought I better write something before the day comes to a close. I got up this morning around 5:58 AM. I got up made myself some oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my mush while messing with our main computer. In the mornings I go to our main computer to look at News, check my e-mail and to watch Youtube. I check my Youtube site to see if I have received any new comments on my videos and to see if I have any new subscribers to my Booktube channel. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary, read, and made a video for my Youtube channel. This morning I have been reading, 'Fire Within St Teresa Of Avila St John Of The Cross And The Gospel ON PRAYER' by Thomas Dubay, S.M..

Carol called around 8:30 AM from the hospital telling me she was done with work and ready to come home. When we got home Carol looked at a morning newspaper and ate some chex mix and then went to bed for the day. She works tonight AND is off tomorrow night.

I have no plans for the day except to drift. I might doze this morning down in the lower level. Last night I read my books and made a video for my Booktube channel. I read from these books last night before going to bed-

'The Pleasures of the Imagination: English Culture in the Eighteenth Century' by John Brewer

'Scratches The Rules Of The Game Volume 1' by Michel Leiris Translated from the French by Lydia Davis

Well I suppose I will close to drift.
16th-Feb-2019 09:49 am - Valentine's Day story
It is in the flow of shit 2:17 PM Friday afternoon. It is gray and bitter cold outside today. A good day to die of frost bite.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. Carol and I went to bed around 12:30 AM last night. So right now I do not feel so chipper. Smile God loves you. So I got up to find Carol reading in the living room. I made for us a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my mush messing with our main computer and then I wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my personal diary I read from a book titled, 'Fire Within St Teresa Of Avila St John Of The Cross And The Gospel ON PRAYER' by Thomas Dubay,S.M.. After reading some of the book 'Fire Within' I went down into the lower level and dozed till it was time for me to get ready to go volunteer at our local library used books store The Book Nook from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM.

Today the Book Nook was hardly moving with life so I read from a book I basically read all day yesterday titled, 'Fin De Siecle: Art And Society In An Age Of Uncertainty' by Shearer West.

I brought home from the Book Nook today two used books to add to our library-

'Technopoly: The Surrender Of Culture to Technology' by Neil Postman

'The Minority Report And Other Classic Stories' by Philip K. Dick

When I got home from the Book Nook this afternoon Carol had just gotten home from getting our taxes from our Tax Man. This year we get some money back from Big Brother. At least we do not owe the Government anything this year.

Well I am wasted so I will close to watch shit float by. There is no way of escape.
14th-Feb-2019 04:36 pm - a diseased civilization
It is now in the flow of degeneration 4:27 PM late Thursday afternoon. Emily just picked up Josie Joy. Carol said she feels like she just worked a 12 hour shift.

I have been wondering my cell and reading, 'Fin De Siecle: Art And Society In An Age Of Uncertainty' by Shearer West. I will now quote from this interesting book that is also a commentary on the days we are currently living-

"Sickness of individuals and families was therefore seen as only one aspect of a sick civilization. Nietzsche's ironic comment, 'Madness is something rare in individuals-but in groups, parties, people, ages it is the rule', later took on more serious forms. The sociologist Emile Durkheim attributed the increase in suicides in the 1890's to this wide social malady: suicide could not be attributed to individual insanity but to a flaw in the fabric society which encouraged excessive individualism or immoderate self-sacrifice. Durkheim's ostensibly scientific study was in reality a comment on what he saw as a diseased civilization . . ." pg. 24
14th-Feb-2019 09:55 am - holy nature
It is in the death flow on a Thursday morning 9:45 AM. A cold gray morning. It is not snowing or raining this morning.

I got up around 7:15 AM this morning. When I came upstairs Carol and Josie were up. I made for breakfast a pot of oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and downloaded a video I made last night before going to bed.

There is not much else to report. Josie and Carol have been playing with Carol's old doll house. I have been wandering the house. I am at a loss what to do with myself this morning. It is impossible to read with noise in the background.

I have next to me this morning a book titled, 'The Spiritual Life' by Campegius Vitringa Translated And Edited By Charles K. Telfer Forword By Richard A. Muller.

Last night there was too much activity around me to read. I did look at last night before going to bed a book titled, 'Death In Florence: The Medici, Savonarola, And The Battle For The Soul Of A Renaissance City' by Paul Strathern. I also looked at these books yesterday in the midst of the house chaos-

'Fin De Siecle: Art And Society In An Age Of Uncertainty' by Shearer West

'Scratches: The Rule Of The Game Volume 1' by Michel Leiris Translated from the French by Lydia Davis

I suppose I will close to drift.
