the intellectual apprehension of the mysteries of the faith

It is 9:18 AM Tuesday morning here in west Michigan. It is a hot gray humid morning.

I got up around 6:48 AM this morning. I got up ate some cereal for breakfast and then messed with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then sat in the living room dozing. All I want to do this morning is doze. I could easily go to bed and never get up. I can understand now that I am old that there is really no good reason to get out of bed in the morning.

Carol woke me up when she got home from work this morning around 8:40 AM. Carol has gone to bed for the day, she goes back to work tonight. I have a dentist appointment at 11 o'clock AM to have my teeth cleaned/six month dental check-up. I am thankful I have a mouth full of teeth.

I have been reading this morning from a novel I read last night titled, 'Moonglow' by Michael Chabon. Last night besides reading 'Moonglow' I made a video for my Youtube channel.

I found out yesterday a poet and a blogger I have been following for many years was killed walking across a street, his name was Tom Clark. I will miss Tom Clark and his blog.

Since my two week suspension in Youtube I have directed my videos to viewers outside of Booktube. I have come to see over time my videos can not be labeled strictly videos made for Booktube. My videos are more diary videos/the diary of a Christian bookworm and not a Booktuber.

If I was to tag my videos as Booktube I am afraid Youtube would delete my site for being accurately describing the content my videos.

the mind's ecstatic entry into the life of God

It is now in the ongoing death flow 4:26 PM Tuesday late afternoon. This day has gone by like all my other days. I am thankful for quiet days where nothing happens. I like doing nothing but waiting to find out what kills me/takes me out of this life into the life to come.

I went to my dentist appointment around 10:50 AM and was home by Noon. My teeth are doing fine. When I got home from the dentist office I ate lunch and made a fresh pot of coffee. After lunch I wrote in my paper diary and messed with our main computer.

I read this afternoon once again from Volume One of the two volume work 'The Devil's Redemption: A New History And Interpretation Of Christian Universalism' by Michael J. McClymond. After reading for awhile 'The Devil's Redemption' I dozed in the living room. It is so nice in my old age to sit in a quiet house and just close my eyes and doze. I now know why old people sleep or take naps. When we close our eyes we can dream about the days when we were young and full of fire. Now the fire has become a slow burn.

I did read after dozing for awhile from a memoir titled, 'I Will Be Complete: A Memoir' by Glen David Gold.

I thought about leaving the house this afternoon to go visit thrift stores in search of used books to add to our library. But I decided maybe tomorrow morning I will go visit thrift stores. There is always tomorrow.

I do not know what I will the rest of this day. I suppose I will close and just sit in silence.
