I do not know where this day has gone. Maybe someday I will find out. For now I must accept complete and total ignorance. Life is a profound mystery to me. I live by faith. I remember these words from the Epistle to the Hebrews, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" Hebrews 11:1.
I spent the afternoon hours mainly writing in my paper diary, messing with our main computer and reading the memoir by Juan Goytisolo titled, "Forbidden Territory And Realms Of Strife". I received today in the mail this afternoon these three books.
"The Liberal Imagination" essays by Lionel Trilling
"The Rings of Saturn" a novel by W. G. Sebald
"No Man's Garden: Thoreau And A New Vision For Civilization And Nature" by Daniel B. Botkin
Carol left for work this evening around 7:35 PM. She asked me if I wanted anything from the Holland Farmer's Market. I said No. I do not want anything. I want to be left alone. I do not want to be bothered. I am waiting it out in the Wasteland. I remember these words of the Apostle Paul, "Rejoice in the Lord always, Again I will say, rejoice!" Phil. 3:4.
This evening I have been reading "The Liberal Imagination" by Lionel Trilling. (I have in our library a biography by Diana Trilling titled, "The Beginning of the Journey: The Marriage Of Diana And Lionel Trilling".)
I ordered this evening the new Deerhunter CD 'Fading Frontier'. I enjoy listening to music in the It.
Well I will close to face the darkness. There is no way of escape.
