It is 10:21 AM Sunday morning here in West Michigan. I realized that yesterday it would have been 9:21 AM. We lost in hour yesterday. Where did that hour go? Did that hour exist or was all in our heads. Does Time really exist or is it an invention of Western civilization. Who knows the correct Time Muslims or Christians? East or West? North or South? Where is real Time to be found? Does Time live inside the Godhead?

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I got up got a glass of cold water and walked to our dining room to wake up. After waking up I had breakfast and then messed with our main computer.

Carol left for Covenant PCA around 8:20 AM. I wrote in my paper diary, filmed a video, and fed the birds. So has gone by existence in a dead world.

Last night I mainly read till bedtime a novel titled, 'The Parisian' a novel by Isabella Hammad. Yesterday I finished reading the novel, 'Opioid, Indiana' by Brian Allen Carr. This novel was OK, but did not blow me away. The novel 'Opioid, Indiana' reminded me of another novel that I read last year titled, 'Ohio' A Novel by Stephen Markley.

Well I think I will close to drift and to look at a book titled, 'Canon, Covenant, and Christology: Rethinking Jesus and the Scriptures of Israel' by Matthew Barrett.

I noticed in rereading my online diary that I failed to mention that last Thursday my wife bought me these used books at thrift stores in Hudsonville Michigan-
