Carol got home from work late because she went downtown to Reader's World to get a Sunday Grand Rapids Press and pick up children's books she had ordered. She just went to bed for the day. I am once again alone with my thoughts. There is no way out.

Last night I made a video for my BookTube channel and read late into the night from a book titled, 'A Rebel In Defense Of Tradition: The Life and Politics of Dwight Macdonald' biography by Michael Wreszin.

So it is a new week. Existence keeps decaying. I suppose I will close to throw the dice.
