the sight of God causes delight

It is 8:14 AM Monday morning on the process of decay. We are constantly decaying. Dead matter is constantly falling off our bodies. We are slowly rotting and waiting to be placed in storage.

I got up this morning around 6:45 AM. I got up got myself a glass of orange juice and messed with our main computer. I first checked for e-mail and then skimmed the morning news. After messing with our main computer I made myself a bowl of oatmeal and then wrote in my paper diary. I have been reading this morning from a book titled, 'Seeing God: The Beatific Vision in Christian Tradition' by Hans Boersma.

This morning I once again volunteer at the local library used books store from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM.

Last night I filmed a video for my Youtube channel and read 'The Scarlet Tree' autobiography by Osbert Sitwell. Now it is another day. Outside this morning it is sunny and hot.

Carol will soon be home from work. She is off tonight from work. Tomorrow is my 66th birthday. I am an old man. Growing old is weird, because you know your time is short. Of course I could live to be 96 years old, so I could live another 30 years. Carol has a friend named Pam who is 93 years old. Well I will close to drift. I am tired.

It is now in the flow of decay 3:42 PM late Monday afternoon. I have been struggling since I got home from the local library used books store to stay awake. In my old age all I want to do is close my eyes and get lost inside my brain. I am always listening to my brain. I am always thinking. I need to hear a silent brain. A brain filled with holy silence.

Carol has not gotten up yet to face existence. She said this morning she would be up around 2 o'clock PM. My wife needs her rest in her old age.

The Book Nook today was not busy so I wandered the store and read from a big book titled, 'The Great War, America And The Remaking Of The Global Order, 1916-1931' by Adam Tooze. I brought home these used books from the Book Nook-

'The Beauty Of The Cross: The Passion Of Christ In Theology And The Arts-From The Catacombs To The Eve Of The Renaissance' by Richard Viladesau

'J' a novel by Howard Jacobson

'A London Year: 365 Days of City London in Diaries, Journals, and Letters' Compiled by Travis Elborough & Nick Rennison

I have been reading since I got home from a autobiography titled, 'The Scarlet Tree' by Osbert Sitwell. I plan to drift through the rest of this day. Go find someplace quiet and close my eyes and see what is going on inside my old brain.
