ill fares the land

I can not escape time so why always acknowledge it? I can not beat time. No matter what I do time always wins. It is 11:21 AM Wednesday late morning. I am waiting to take our dog Rudy to the groomers. After dropping off Rudy I will visit thrift stores and an office supply store. When I get home from all that I might mow the lawn. I really should mow our lawn since it is important to be a good neighbor.

I really do not have anything new to report to Big Brother.

This morning I had to renew my license at the Secretary of State office. I waited and hour and half to get that done. After that ordeal I visited a thrift store near by and found one used book to add to our library-"Ill Fares the Land" essays by Tony Judt.

So goes by my typical life. We all are going to face death so it is time to repent and believe the Gospel of God.

Outside this morning it is a cold cloudy day. Maybe the sun will come out this afternoon.

Well I will close to face Time. "Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh" Matthew 25:13

"[1] Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
[2] And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
[3] They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
[4] But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
[5] While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
[6] And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
[7] Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
[8] And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
[9] But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
[10] And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
[11] Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
[12] But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
[13] Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." Matthew 25:1-13

It is in the Time flow 2:57 PM Wednesday afternoon. I pick up Rudy at the groomer's at 5 o'clock PM.

I mowed our lawn this afternoon. That was a chore! As I was mowing I got very weak so I stopped and came into the house and ate some food. I decided not to mow every part of our lawn since I lost the will to complete the task. So I put away the lawn mower and cleaned up.

After I dropped off Rudy I did visit a thrift store and an office supply store. I found these used books today to add to our library.

"The Social Animal: A Story of How Success Happens" by David Brooks

"This Wild Darkness: The Story Of My Death" memoir by Harold Brodkey

"The Devils And Canon Barham" Ten Essays on Poets, Novelists and Monsters by Edmund Wilson

"Budding Prospects A Pastoral" a novel by T. Coraghessan Boyle

"Funeral Rites" a novel by Jean Genet

Not much else to report so I will close to recovery from mowing our lawn.

Every time I visit Staples Office Supply store to buy paper and folders I always have to buy a package of OptiFlow liquid rollerball pens. I absolutely love these pens! I have been writing for 45 years and I have used all kinds of pens/fountain pens on and on it goes. Several years ago I started using OptiFlow pens and can't get over how easily it is to write with them. I also have discovered the best paper to write with these pens is Staples wide-rule paper. When I write the words must flow out of the pen. If I find the pen to not flow smoothly when contacting the paper I find it difficult to flow with words/written words. When writing the words must dance gracefully across the paper. A flow of energy symbols.
