I got up this morning around 6:13 AM. I slept better last night, which I am thankful for. There is no sleep in the Eternal State/no such thing as soul sleep or eternal rest. I got up made myself a bowl of oatmeal and drank coffee made yesterday. I ate my oatmeal in front of our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read my Reformation commentary on the Gospel of Luke. I also read from a booklet titled, 'Piety: The Heartbeat of Reformed Theology" by Joel Beeke. Carol got home from work around 9 o'clock AM and went to bed around 9:35 AM for the day.
I left the house this morning to visit thrift stores in search of used books to ADD to our Book Collection. I found these used books this morning at various thrift stores-
"The House of Rumour" a novel Jake Arnott
"Witness to an Extreme Century" A Memoir by Robert Jay Lifton
"The War Of The World: Twentieth-Century Conflict and the Descent of the West" by Niall Ferguson (We have in our small town library another book by Niall Ferguson titled, "The House Of Rothschild: Money's Prophets 1798-1848".)
"Selected Writings" (Penguin Classics) by Samuel Johnson (I read awhile back an excellent biography on the life of Samuel Johnson by W. Jackson Bate titled, "Samuel Johnson".)
"Late Victorian Holocausts: El Nino, Famines, And The Making Of The Third World" by Mike Davis
"In Paradise" a novel by Peter Mattiessen ( I collect the writings of Peter Mattiessen.)
"The Good Apprentice" a novel by Iris Murdoch (I collect the writings of Iris Murdoch. Murdoch is one of my favorite writers.)
After visiting thrift stores I came home to have lunch and wait out existence.
Last night I watched on DVD the movie "Ghost World" and went to bed and read, "The Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia" by Deleuze & Guattari late into the night. Also I read yesterday from these two books-
"The Mighty Walzer" a novel by Howard Jacobson
"Postmodern Sublime: Technology And American Writing From Mailer To Cyberpunk" by Joseph Tabbi.
Well, I will close to face the day ahead of me with courage and determination. I will not go down without a ferocious fight.
