the search for peace of mind

It is in the death flow 11:41 AM late Tuesday morning on a cold wet gray ugly day. Where did the warm sunny Spring weather go?

I just got back from visiting local thrift stores to look at their used books. I found these used books this morning to ADD to our library-

"July's People" a novel by Nadine Gordimer

"My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind" by Scott Stossel

"Dangerous Laughter" 13 Stories by Steven Millhauser

"Pig" a novel by Andrew Cowan

"The Three Weissmanns of Westport" a novel by Cathleen Schine

"Portrait in Brownstone" a novel by Louis Auchincloss

"The Good of Affluence: Seeking God In A Culture Of Wealth" by John R. Schneider

"Night Film" a novel by Marisha Pessl

Carol left this morning to have breakfast with a co-worker and to do errands. I have been doing what I do every morning. I suppose I will close since I do not feel like writing right now.

When I was at a credit union this morning getting some spending money I saw a wild turkey and I took this picture. (I always have a camera with me so as to take pictures if I come across something worth taking photos of.)

Herschel's view of the Galactic Plane



"[1] The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
[2] Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
[3] There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
[4] Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
[5] Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
[6] His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
[7] The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
[8] The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
[9] The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
[10] More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
[11] Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
[12] Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
[13] Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
[14] Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer." Psalm 19
