feel interiorly alien to all things

It is 9:34 AM Tuesday morning in the ice flow. I slow ice flow in snow covered country. I am surrounded by mountains of snow. I can not see over the mountains of snow.

I am struggling to stay awake this morning. Maybe I got up too early this morning. When I get up in the morning I always comfort myself by telling myself I can always go back to bed down in the lower level. I woke up this morning from a religious dream. In this spiritual dreams I was telling someone that the Eastern Orthodox believe that those who go to heaven will forever and forever be experiencing the love of God. We will never exhaust the love of God. God is love and forever pouring out His infinite love upon His children.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. When I got up I let Rudy out of his crate and made a pot of coffee. After making coffee I messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my diary I sat in the living room dozing till Carol called for me to come and pick her up. When we got home I fed the birds and Carol left to do an errand of mercy.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. It is 9 degrees outside this morning. We are suppose to see the sun shine today.

Last night I watched television and went to bed around 11:10 PM. Now it is another day.

I got out to look at this morning a Puritan volume titled "General Directions For A Comfortable Walking With God" by Robert Bolton (1572-1631) Introduction by John MacArthur.

Yesterday I mainly read all day 'The Dark Night' by St. John of the Cross. I had a quiet time at the library book nook yesterday from 2 PM till 4 PM. I brought home from the library book nook these two used books to ADD to our library.

"Wonderful Fool" a novel by Shusaku Endo

"The Soldier's Return" a novel by Melvyn Bragg

Well since I am fading fast I will close to feel totally drained of all life force.
