Yesterday for me was a super quiet day. I wandered my cell and read most of the day. My wife got up to face existence around 3:10 PM. Emily skyped from GR just as Carol was getting up. Little Josie is now singing the ABC song, how cute!
I mainly read yesterday "Infinite Jest" a novel by David Foster Wallace. To be honest I am not digging this book. The novel is to me an intellectual exercise, not something that takes me to another world. Reading "Infinite Jest" is a total mind trip. I personally love a good old fashion story novel which characters and a plot. I think I like stories because as a Christian I love the Story of Salvation. The Bible is full of good stories/historical stories. A good story makes you feel good or teaches you something about existence. A good story should make you feel different after reading it/see the world in a different way/feel enriched by the reading experience. I usually feel exhausted mentally and depressed after reading "Infinite Jest". One thing I do not like about "Infinite Jest" is all the discussion on the world of professional tennis. I am not a tennis fan.
Last night Carol and I watched a movie on Amazon Prime. I went to be early because I am sick with a winter cold. Hopefully I will soon feel better.
Well I suppose I will close to write in my February 2016 diary and read my Reformation commentary on Psalm 26.
I have come to really enjoy the music of Blut Aus Nord and plan to collect all his albums.
