the end of the light

It is in the death flow 8:01 AM Tuesday morning. The sun is shining in the blue sky this morning. Some day the sun will not be there in the expanse of space. Carol and I were up this morning around 6:10 AM. I made oatmeal for breakfast and also a fresh pot of coffee.

I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and looked at these books-

"Walking To Hollywood: Memories of Before the Fall" by Will Self

"Gods Without Men" a novel by Hari Kunzru

"American Smoke: Journeys To The End Of The Light" by Iain Sinclair

Thus far my morning has been normal. I plan to leave the house this morning to get bird seed, wild flower seeds and then visit thrift stores in search of used books to add to our library.

Carol goes back to work after being off six nights. Our lives are speeding by! In six years I will be 70 years old.

Yesterday I mainly existed and read, "The Novel: A Biography" by Michael Schmidt. There is no way out.

I will close to feel at a loss.

the rise and development of New Thought

It is now in the death flow 1:42 PM Tuesday afternoon. This morning I did leave the house to get bird seed and visit thrift stores to look for used books to add to our library. My friend Tim went with me this morning to get bird seed and visit thrift stores. After visiting a Seed Store and thrift stores we had lunch at a Burger King. It is always a blessing to visit with Tim as the world goes the way of Cain.

Here is a list of used books I found today to add to our library-
