people like to challenge their rational mind in relation to their irrational fear

It is in the death flow 8:41 AM Sunday morning. The sun is shining and it is mild outside.

I got up around 7 o'clock AM this morning. I got up made a pot of coffee and then messed with our main computer. When Carol got up I made us a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. So has gone by time thus far.

Carol just left to walk the dog. I do not know what I will do next to keep myself awake.

Last night I did nothing and went to bed early. Now it is another week to wait it out. I did look at a book last night before giving up titled, "Hogarth" biography by David Bindman.

I will close to write in my paper diary. There is no way out.

we have sought refuge in a world of illusion where language is cut off from reality

It is 8:38 PM Sunday night in the death flow. It soon will be time for me to go to bed once again. I have to be in bed by a 11 o'clock PM each night. I rarely sleep soundly so I am always tired. But there are nights when I sleep soundly which is always a blessing.

I have been reading this evening from a book titled, "Voltaire's Bastards: The Dictatorship of Reason in the West" by John Ralston Saul.

I suppose there is not much else to report. I will close to wait for the next day to come.
