dark night of contemplation

It is in the FLOW 1:24 PM Tuesday afternoon. It is a cool cloudy day here in West Michigan. A good day for killing fleas.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I drank coffee made yesterday while messing with our main computer. After I messed with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and then made a fresh pot of coffee. I went back to our main computer to read stuff on Charles Baudelaire and the birth of Modernism. I am reading this kind of intellectual material so as to understand/historical context more the book, "Paris Vagabond" by Jean-Paul Clebert. I think I am getting over my head in trying to grasp fully the book, "Paris Vagabond". But at the same time I have plenty of time to kill. I am not going anywhere so I am reading once again my books on the city of Paris and Modernism.

Carol came home from work while I was on the internet. She was whipped and went to bed soon after coming home the House. I left this morning around 10:30 AM to visit some more thrift stores in search of used books to ADD to our library. I found these used books today-

So existence keeps rolling along. I suppose I will close to dig into my books and wait for the Rapture of the Saints.
