the house of truth

It is 12:47 PM Wednesday morning in the flow of decay. Everything is passing away.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I woke up still feeling sick with a bad Winter cold. The morning went by a fog. I did download this morning a video I made last night for my Booktube channel. I made myself a pot of oatmeal for breakfast and a fresh pot of coffee. I recall eating my oatmeal messing with our main computer. I listened on Youtube music by Patti Smith and Tom Waits. I first heard the music of Tom Waits in 1977 Richmond California. I have been into the music of Patti Smith for many years. Patti Smith has also written books of poetry and also two memoirs.

Carol got home from work this morning around 8:35 AM. I just had fed the birds when she got home from work. Carol is now off three nights from work.

After Carol went to bed I decided to leave the house to visit thrift stores to search for used books to ADD to our library. I left the house around 10:40 AM and got home around Noon. I found these used books today-

'Olive Kitteridge' a novel by Elizabeth Strout

'The Devils' a novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky Translated By David Magarshack [The Penguin Classics]

'Boston Adventure' a novel by Jean Stafford

'From Resistance To Revolution: Colonial radicals and the development of American opposition to Britain, 1765-1776' by Pauline Maier (we have in our library another book by Pauline Maier titled, 'American Scripture: Making the Declaration of Independence')

'Henry Adams: Scientific Historian' by William H, Jordy

'The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals' by Michael Pollan

'Dutch: A Memoir Of Ronald Reagan' by Edmund Morris

'Reagan: A Life In Letters' Edited with an Introduction and Commentary by Kiron K. Skinner, Annelise Anderson, and Martin Anderson

This afternoon there is sunshine and some blue sky. I am going to close since I feel absolutely wasted. Last night I basically read from a book titled, 'The House Of Truth: A Washington Political Salon and the Foundations of American Liberalism' by Brad Snyder.
