It is 3:31 PM Monday afternoon in the Death Flow. I just cleaned up after mowing our lawn front and back. Who says they do not believe in miracles?

It is a cool cloudy sunny breezy afternoon in the Wasteland. I have been feeling sick all day, but I force myself to live in the Dead Zone. I believe in the Resurrection of the dead.

This morning weird dreams and sweat drove me out of bed. When I stumbled out our bedroom I found Carol sitting in the living room reading the Bible. I got a bottle of ice mountain sparkling cold water and sat near my wife remembering all my past deeds.

Finally I got up went to our kitchen and pour out a bowl of cereal for breakfast. After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and messed with our main computer. I left for the library around 9:10 AM to check out the Friends of the Library used books sale and to volunteer at the Book Nook.

Today the Book Nook was busy due to people attending the Friends of the Library used books sale. When not helping people I read 'Nineteen Eight-Four' a novel by George Orwell.

When I got home from the Book Nook I found Carol gone. She got home around 3 o'clock PM and is now sleeping because she works tonight.

I am sick and I believe I am at the end of my rope. I will close to feel sick and to read some more of the book, 'The Ministry Of Truth: The Biography Of George Orwell's 1984' by Dorian Lynskey.
