their city that has been turned into a living Hell

It is in the flow of the natual course of life here where I am presently at 8:09 PM Tuesday night. I am listening to some quiet peace Death Metal, the CD is a split between two groups Adversarial & Paroxsihzem 'Warpit Of Coiling Attrocities'. Today I was wondering to myself why am I attracted to Death Metal these days? It is because the music is nothing I have ever heard before/it is new music whereas most modern music that is popular is old hat. The only popular music that is different these days is Black Metal or Death Metal. Also Black Metal and Death Metal is performed world wide and is very different from most American music heard on television and the radio. I suppose I have always been drawn to music or Art that has not embraced by middle class folks who eat pop corn and cheer for Trump. I have always been outside the main stream especially being a conservative Bible believing Christian. I do not fit anywhere in this vast Wasteland called America.

I realized awhile back that over the years the reason why some Christians have attacked me was because I did not embrace their white American middle class values. I scared these Christians so they put me down or sought to have me expelled from the visible American evangelical establishment.

Carol went to work tonight even though she was suppose to be off. She is working tonight for another nurse so she can be off tomorrow night, which will give her five straight days off from work.

I had a normal day of reading my books, watching birds and writing in my paper diary. I mainly read from these books today when not lost in thought-

'The Deep Things Of God how the Trinity Changes Everything' by Fred Sanders

'The Triune God' [New Studies In Dogmatics] by Fred Sanders

'A Rebel In Defense Of Tradition: The Life and Politics of Dwight Macdonald' by Michael Wreszin

'Modernism In Dispute: Art since the Forties' by Paul Wood, Francis Frascina, Jonathan Harris & Charles Harrison

'The Decameron' by Giovanni Boccaccio Translated by Wayne A. Reborn

Tonight I am not sure what I will read since I am tired and love silence.

Well, I suppose I will close to sweat. It is 85 degrees inside our this evening.

Before I close I should mention I have been watching on Amazon Prime the Grateful Dead doc titled, A Long Strange Trip. I should also add I have never been a fan of the music of the Grateful Dead.
