wake up!

It is in the death flow 7:42 AM Monday morning. The sun is shining this morning. We turned off the central air and opened up the house this morning.

I got up around 6:05 AM this morning. My wife was already up sitting in the dining room looking through the morning newspaper.

I have been doing the usual things this morning. I am extremely sleepy this morning. Some mornings it is a killer seeking to wake-up to existence.

Carol is out walking the dog. I am not sure what I will do keep myself from falling asleep.

Yesterday I started reading one of my new books titled, "The Bohemians: Mark Twain and the San Francisco Writers Who Reinvented American Literature" by Ben Tarnoff. This morning I have been trying to read from a book titled, "The Shattered Lantern: Rediscovering A Felt Presence Of God" by Ronald Rolheiser.

Well, I suppose I will close to go through this day. There is no way out.

the incorporation of the barbarians into the Empire

It is in the death flow 3:01 PM Monday afternoon. It has been a typical day for me thus far. I have found no reason to give up today.

I mowed the lawn this morning. As I was doing yard work the landscaper fellow came to trim a bush in our front yard and to trim our sidewalks.

This afternoon I have been wandering my cell and reading, "The Glory of The Empire A Novel, A History" by Jean D'Ormesson. In the mail this afternoon I received a used book I had ordered titled, "Orwell:The Authorized Biography' by Michael Shelden. I have two other biographies by Michael Shelden in our library-

"Graham Greene: The Enemy Within" biography by Michael Shelden

"Melville in Love: The Secret Life Of Herman Melville And The Muse Of Moby-Dick" biography by Michael Shelden

Not much else to report this afternoon. Carol is sleeping and I am drifting into the coming darkness.
