It is 11:45 AM late Monday afternoon here in West Michigan. Outside this morning a rain storm is brewing.

I am waiting for the rain storm to burst upon us this afternoon. I am glad there is no reason for me to be out in the world today. I am falling asleep so I need to write something fast before I pass out from exhaustion.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. When I got up I found my wife sitting in our living room reading. I got myself a glass of apple cider and then sat in the dining room dozing. I then moved into the living room to doze. Around 7:35 AM I got moving because I had an appointment to take our car in to a local auto repair shop for an oil change. While waiting for the car to have it's oil change I sat and read, 'Living in Union with Christ: Paul's Gospel and Christian Moral Identity' by Grand Macaskill.

I got home from getting our car's oil changed around 9:05 AM and have spent the morning doing the usual things like writing in my paper diary and reading some more of the book, 'Living in Union with Christ'.

I am not at the local library used bookstore The Book Nook this morning, because they are installing new ceiling lights.

I plan to just drift through the rest of the day. I will read and write through this cold rainy day.

Last I watched professional football and read from a book titled, 'Mary McGrory: The First Queen Of Journalism' by John Norris.

Dylan hired Pennebaker again for his candle-burning-at-both-ends 1966 European tour with the Hawks, who were soon to morph into The Band. This time, Pennebaker and his crew were shooting in full color, fitting the more hallucinatory sounds of this era. Following the tour, Dylan rejected the rough edit Pennebaker delivered, titled Something Is Happening. Working in tandem with cameraman/editor Howard Alk, the songwriter used Pennebaker’s footage to make Eat The Document, a disjointed anti-documentary that has only been shown a handful of times and never been released on home video. Too bad. It’s not an easy watch by any means, but Eat The Document does feature plenty of incredible live clips and oddly beautiful cinematography, and offers valuable insight into Dylan’s amphetamine-frazzled mid-’60s psyche.
