raise our minds above all things that are human, temporary, and created

It is now in the flow of decay 4:04 PM Wednesday afternoon. All day I can feel our house shaking because across the street there are giant earth movers preparing land for construction of a Old Folks Home. When the huge jaws of the earth movers smash the ground to dig up dirt our house shakes. I feel sorry for our neighbors who have those giant earth monster machines right in their back yards destroying Nature to make a big tomb with many compartments for old people to wait for death in.

I have had thus far a normal day waiting it out. I have basically read my books, written in my paper diary and watched birds by our bird feeder. I did not leave my cell today. We still have the A/C on because it is hot and humid outside.

In a couple hours Carol will get up to go off to work. She told me this morning the hospital is almost completely full.

I have been reading this afternoon some more of the book titled, "The Adventures And Misadventures Of Maqroll" by Alvaro Mutis Translated from Spanish by Edith Grossman.

I read Mystical Theology most of the morning and early afternoon hours.

Well I suppose I will close to wait it out. Maybe someday Carol and I will be in that new tomb being built across the way. Our future lies hidden from us.

"[21] In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
[22] All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
[23] And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
[24] For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
[25] And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
[26] He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
[27] And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
[28] And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.
[29] But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?" Luke 10:21-29
