the beauty of the sky is redemptive

It is 1:44 PM Friday in the death flow. Outside this afternoon it is hot, humid and gray. It feels wet outside right now.

This morning I covered for someone at the Herrick District Library Used Books Store from 10 AM till 1:10 PM. I brought home these used books from the library book nook to ADD to our library-

"Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast At Tiffany's And The Dawn Of The Modern Woman" by Sam Wasson

review "Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M."

"The Complete French Poems Of Rainer Maria Rilke" Translated By A. Poulin Jr.

"Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, & The Prison Of Belief" by Lawrence Wright

"Selected Poems 1947-1995" Allen Ginsberg

"Five Decades: Poems 1925-1970" Pablo Naruda [A Bilingual Edition Edited And Translated From The Spanish By Ben Belitt]

"Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon" Selected Poems by Pablo Neruda Translated by Stephen Mitchell

While at the book nook when not helping people I read from these two books-

"A Visit To Don Otavio: A Mexican Journey" by Sybille Bedford

"Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen: Reflections At Sixty And Beyond" memoir by Larry McMurtry

There is not much else to report this afternoon. I am tired so I will close to face the four walls of my cell.

"[1] But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
[2] And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
[3] And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
[4] For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
[5] And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
[6] And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
[7] And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
[8] (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
[9] The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished" 2 Peter 2:1-9
