the loss of a parent vibrates through the life of a child

It is in the ongoing death flow 6:58 PM Thursday evening. I thought I would write a few words since it is all harmless. I have been writing in Crookedfingers LiveJournal for many years and thus far the ship as not been sunk.

I suppose I had a normal day. I once again packed books to be taken to our local library. I took a van full of used books to our local library around 10:50 AM. I unloaded the books and took them into the library. The folks at the library gave me boxes to pack some more books that I will drop off tomorrow after I do my shift at the Book Nook. The library will give me more boxes to fill with used books after I unload boxes full of books tomorrow. I plan to clear the lower level of a thousand books or more in the coming weeks. It is time to make room for Life down in the lower level. How many books will I be able to read in the short span of time I have left to seek the face of God?

Late this morning I received a phone call from a lady who volunteers at the Book Nook asking if I could cover for her today from 3 o'clock PM till 5 o'clock PM. I said SURE since I am free as a bird these days. So I did that this afternoon. In the mail today I received a book I had ordered titled, 'Hiking With Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are' biography/memoir by John Kaag (Author of 'American Philosophy: A Love Story'). I read this book while I was at the Book Nook this afternoon. An interesting read.

When I got home from the Book Nook I ate food, packed more books, and cleaned up. So has gone by my existence tonight.

Tomorrow I once again volunteer at the Book Nook. I have ready a van full of books to unload tomorrow at the library. I need to make room for my lonely existence down in the lower level. I am sure I have enough books to read if I make it to 80 years old. Well I will close to face the coming darkness. There is no way of escape.
