unapproachable light

It is 11:25 AM late Wednesday morning in the day. Outside it is cold and gray.

I am tired this morning. I think I got up too early this morning. I went back to bed around 8 o'clock AM and got up around 10:30 AM. Now it is 11:27 AM in the flow of this day. Carol just left to walk Rudy around the neighborhood. She has to go to the hospital this morning to practice getting use to the new computer system that goes online May the 19th. Everyone at the hospital is freaked about using this new computer system.

I have been this morning listening to music and dreaming of a perfect life.

I did write a couple of pages in my paper diary this morning. I read a few pages in the book, "The Colossus Of Maroussi" by Henry Miller this morning. Yesterday evening I read, "Hitch-22: A Memoir" by Christopher Hitchens. Carol and I watched television last night and went to bed around 11:30 PM. So has gone by our puny little lives. What makes life meaningful is being a Christian. I belong to the Lord Jesus. He is Lord!

I do not know what we will do this afternoon. Carol is not one to sit around the house when she is off from work.

Well I will close to feel wasted.

a stripper's farewell journey across America

Carol and I went out for lunch to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. While out having lunch we did some errands and visited thrift stores. I found these used books to add to our family library.

"Boswell's Life Of Johnson" paperback edition (I have a hardback edition of this classic in our library.)

"Strip City" A Stripper's Farewell Journey Across America by Lily Burana

"Cold Sassy Tree" a novel by Olive Ann Burns

"Cleopatra: A Life" biography by Stacy Schiff (I have in our library Schiff's biography "Vera (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov)".)

"When Madeline Was Young" a novel by Jane Hamilton (I collect the writings of Hamilton.)

"The Water Is Wide" A Memoir by Pat Conroy (I collect the writings of Conroy.)

It is 4:32 PM I am too wasted to write this evening. I plan to go to bed early. Life is exhausting!

Tomorrow we will be in the middle of the month. There is no way of escape.

dead bunny

This morning I looked out our living room window and saw in the street one of our bunnies dead. Someone during the night or early morning had hit our bunny with their car and he had died. I felt sorrow in my chest for this dead friend so I went outside and placed our dead bunny in a paper sack. This afternoon I drove out to Van Raalte Farm county park and walked into the woods and place our dead friend bunny on the earth. My prayer is that this dead bunny will become one once again with Nature. I will miss this bunny.
