The Day of Atonement

It is 4:56 PM Friday evening in the flow of life. I am down in the lower level writing on my old lap top computer. I have been reading today about the books of the American writer Alexander Theroux. I recently ordered a novel by Alexander Theroux titled, "Laura Warholic: Or, The Sexual Intellectual". I am tempted to buy all the writings of Alexander Theroux for our library. But I will wait for next month to come before ordering any more books. I also ordered the other day a book titled, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast" by Edward Abbey.

I think I have next month coming in the mail a new Will Self novel.

This day has been normal thus far. I basically have been reading this afternoon a biography on the life of Gustave Flaubert by Benjamin F. Bart.

Carol goes back to work tonight. There is nothing on TV tonight so I should mop the kitchen floors and read my books. Tomorrow morning I once again volunteer at the Herrick Public Library used books store from 10 AM till 1 PM. I might watch college football tomorrow afternoon, it all depends how I feel inside.

I have to confess I did leave the house this afternoon with the purpose of going for a walk at VanRaalte Farm county park, but threatening storm clouds caused me to change my mind. While out I did stop at a local thrift store to look over their selection of used books. Sadly to write I found nothing to add to our book collection. Maybe next week I will find some used books to add to our library. One can always dream. I need to find used books every week to add to our library to feel normal. Next month around the first of the month Carol and I are going to a used books sale in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

So this day has gone by with any awareness of my inner pain. There are times I hate life in America. But where else can I go, but up.

Well I suppose I will close to drift.

"[37] In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
[38] He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
[39] (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)" John 7:37-39
