an ability to suspend consciousness

It is now in the flow of my life 7:21 PM Wednesday night. I am down in the lower level looking at my library/books. Carol is upstairs catching up on her Bible reading. I have been mainly reading today from a book titled, "The Legacy Of David Foster Wallace" Edited By Samuel Cohen & Lee Konstantinou. This evening I have been reading in this volume an essay titled, 'Getting Away From It All: The Literary Journalism Of David Foster Wallace And Nietzsche's Concept Of Oblivion' by Josh Roiland.

Today I mentioned in LJ that I found used today at a thrift store a Six Volume Set of "History Of My Life" by Giacomo Casanova. I had already a volume in our library titled, "Casanova's Memoirs" Edited By Joseph Monet Drawings By Vincente Minnelli 1930 New York Privately Printed hardback. The translator of "History Of My Life" was or is Willard R. Trask. I have two other books in our library translated by Trask-

"Minesis: The Representation of Reality in Western Literature" By Erich Auerbach [Translated By Willard R. Trask]

"Cosmos And History: The Myth Of The Eternal Return" By Mircea Eliade [Translated From The French By Willard R. Trask]

So the day has gone by. I am tired and plan to go to bed early. Existence keeps speeding by!
