Upper Macatawa Natural Area

It is 12:59 PM Wednesday. This morning I took Rudy for a walk at Upper Macatawa Natural Area. I wanted to go Upper Macatawa Natural Area to walk Rudy but also to see how the expansion was going along.

After walking Rudy I headed home. Before coming home I stopped at one thrift store to look at their used books. I found no used books to add to our library.

This morning I was up by 6:05 AM. I made coffee and then messed with our main computer. After fooling with our main computer I made myself some oatmeal-ate-then wrote in my paper diary. I read my books till Carol got home from work around 9:05 AM.

Not much else to report right now. Existence keeps decaying.

Last night I read, "Laura Warholic, or The Sexual Intellectual" by Alexander Theroux and went to bed early.

I read this morning from a book titled, "Reading Backwards: Figural Christology and the Fourfold Gospel Witness" by Richard B. Hays.

Nothing to do the rest of the day. It is a dry cloudy day. A day to see and daydream. I am mentally tired. I need a break. Existence is always the same.

Arthur Koestler

I forgot to mention that last night I gathered all the books I had by Arthur Koestler to put in one place in my book collection. Yesterday I read the first essay in the book, "Reappraisals: Reflections On The Forgotten Twentieth Century" essays by Tony Judt. The first essay is this volume is titled, 'Arthur Koestler, the Exemplary Intellectual' Chapter 1.

A couple years ago I read a biography on the life of Koestler titled, "Koestler: A Biography" by Iain Hamilton. Koestler is most famous for his novel, "Darkness At Noon" which I read in High School. I am still looking for a used copy of the novel "Darkness At Noon".
