Swans

Last week I received in the mail another Swans reissue 'White Light from the Mouth of Infinity' & 'Love of Life'. I like the music of the Swans. Do not know why? Somethings remain hidden in mystery.

This day has gone by normal thus far. I did not go anywhere today due to the bad early winter weather.

I read this afternoon some more of the novel "Monkey's Uncle" by Jenny Diski. I cooked for Carol two turkey burgers for her to eat the next two nights at work.

In the mail this afternoon there was nothing but Christ Mass cards from people I do not know. Carol's friends send Christ Mass cards this time of the year. Carol sent out Christ Mass cards this afternoon. I do not have anyone that I want to send Christ Mass cards to. I am not into the Christ Mass holy day. To me every day is a holy day. In America Christ Mass has been totally secularized. No one celebrates the Birth of the Messiah this time of year in America/most Americans only think at this time of year of buying stuff/consuming food and drink. It is all to me very depressing how America has totally rejected God/the Lord Jesus Christ this time of year/bowing down to idols like Santa Clause and the Snow Man.

"[10] Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
[11] And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
[12] The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
[13] And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
[14] And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
[15] The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
[16] And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
[17] For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
[18] And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!" Rev. 18:10-18

Well, I will close to sit in silence and wait for the coming darkness.
