  • Mood:

the last years of the Roman Republic

It is 3:17 PM Tuesday afternoon. Existence keeps zooming by! Here is a windy sunny day here in West Michigan. It is kind of pretty outside because of the late autumn colors.

I can feel myself fading fast so I will try to write something that makes sense. I got up this morning around 7:20 AM. I got up made myself a pot of coffee and a pot of oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal while messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. I do not think I read anything this morning before going to the local library used books store to volunteer for a couple of hours.

I left for the library around 9:40 AM and the Book Nook was not busy at all. I wandered the store and read 'Fantasyland How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History' by Kurt Andersen. While at the Book Nook I bought a lot of used books that I come into the store that morning. I bought these used books today at the Book Nook-

'Off The Road: Twenty Years with Cassady, Kerouac, & Ginsberg' memoir by Carolyn Cassady (I already had this book, but I bought this paperback edition because of the cover.)

I received in the mail a book I had pre-ordered from Amazon titled, 'The Collected Essays Of Elizabeth Hardwick' Selected By Darryl Pinckney.

After the Book Nook I visited thrift stores and went grocery shopping. When I got home the telephone was ringing and it was Carol.

Well I got to close because I am empty.
