the last temptation of Christ

I left my cell this morning (it is a Thursday) to visit thrift stores to look for used old books to add to our old used books library. I found these old worn used books this morning to throw on the book mountain.

"The Collector Collector" a novel by Tibor Fischer

"The Thought Gang" a novel by Tibor Fischer (I discovered when I got home I had bought two of this novel. Two different covers is what fooled me. I will sale my extra copy someday for a piece of bread.)

"Gardens In The Dunes" a novel by Leslie Marmon Silko (I have been reading lately with pleasure Silko's novel, "The Almanac Of The Dead".)

"Operation Wandering Soul" a novel by Richard Powers (I discovered that in my Richard Powers collection I had already have this novel by him. I will someday exchanged it for a cup of water. Over my short life span I have read a couple of novels by Richard Powers.)

"The Last Temptation of Christ" a novel by Nikos Kazantzakis (Translated from the Greek by P. A. Bien) (I have already in our used books library two novels by Kazantzakis.)

I left my cell this morning to visit local thrift stores around 10 o'clock AM and was home by 11:10 AM. Outside it is cold and gray today. I can smell already Autumn in the air. It will soon be snowing once again. It was a year to remember.

I was up this morning around 5:58 AM. I slept better last night. I took a pain pill before going to bed last night which helped me sleep.

I read these books this morning for devotions.

"Jesus' Attitude Towards The Law" by William Loader

"'Return to Me: A Biblical Theology of Repentance" by Mark J. Boda

"Luke" New Testament III (Reformation Commentary On Scripture) Edited by Beth Kreitzer

As I was having morning worship Carol came home from work. She works tonight from Midnight till 4 AM Friday morning. Tonight Josie Joy spends the night.

Last night I basically read the book "American Smoke: Journey's To The End Of the Light" travel memoir by Iain Sinclair and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. Last night I had a weird dream about my deceased mother, which I find odd since I rarely have dreams about my mother. I must have dreamed about my mother because my birthday is coming soon.

I will close to drift through the afternoon hours.

It is now in the flow 7:38 PM Thursday night. Another day has completed its course. I had a quiet day.

Right now Carol and Josie are sleeping. I am recovering from the day that has happened.

I did not do anything this afternoon. I read basically a book titled, "American Smoke: Journeys To The End Of The Light" a travel memoir by Iain Sinclair. In the mail I received by UPS a book I had ordered titled, "Time Out Of Mind: The Diaries Of Leonard Michaels" by Leonard Michaels. One of Susan Sontag's favorite writers was Leonard Michaels.

Emily and Josie Joy came around 4:30 PM. Emily went back to GR and Josie stayed with us for the night. I made for supper blueberry pancakes. Josie likes to eat blueberries.

Not much else to report this evening. In the morning we are going to take Josie with us grocery shopping. Tomorrow afternoon I cover for someone at the Herrick District Public Library used books store from 1 PM till 3 PM.
