It is now in the flow 2:32 PM Wednesday afternoon. It is still cold and rainy here by Lake Michigan. I have been doing the usual activities today. I love simple empty days of reading my books and being in the presence of God. I can see more and more the benefits of silence in maintaining a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

I left the house this morning to visit a thrift store down the street from us and found these used books to add to our library-

"the New Oxford Guide To Writing" by Thomas S. Kane

"The Abyssinian" a novel by Jean-Christophe Rufin (Translated by Willard Wood) (I recently bought used another novel by Jean-Christphe Rufin titled, "Brazil Red" also translated by Willard Wood.)

"Tortured Wonders: Christian Spirituality for People, Not Angels" by Rodney Clapp

"Point Omega" a novel by Don DeLillo

This afternoon in the mail I received a new biography written by Paul Mariani titled, "The Whole Harmonium: The Life of Wallace Stevens". I have two other biographies by Mariani, "Lost Puritan: A Life of Robert Lowell" and "Dream Song: The Life Of John Berryman". Wallace Stevens, Robert Lowell, and John Berryman were all Poets. I have read a lot of the poetry of Wallace Stevens and Robert Lowell.

So this cold dreary rainy day goes by. Not much else to report so I will close to read my books and revel in this quiet rain soaked day.
