the Beat orbit of Jack Kerouac

It is in the death flow 12:59 PM Thursday afternoon. It is a sunny day here in West Michigan. Everything is green. I love the color green. My eyes are the color green.

I have had a normal day thus far. I was up around 6 o'clock AM this morning. I got up made a pot of coffee and oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read my new commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Longenecker. Carol got home from work around 8:40 AM this morning and went to bed around 9:30 AM. I left the house around 10 o'clock AM to put gas in our van and get gas for our lawnmower. After getting gas I visited a thrift store and got some food items and picked up a prescription. At a thrift store I found these used books to add to our library-

When I got home from running around I ate lunch and cataloged my used books into my LibraryThing site Bookmountain. So has gone by my life.

Last night I listened to music and read my books. Now it is another day. Existence keeps decaying.
